A strawberry moon was due to rise about 5pm. It was a beautiful evening, with no golfers to be seen on the fairways, so I decided to set up my tripod beside the nearest pond and hopefully take some nice shots. With a 180 degree view, one has to keep watch, as to just where the moon will appear. Its appearance this evening was quite perfect.
Spot the moon.
The water wasn't quite still, but I was happy.
My feelings of elation continued as this was choir evening. 'Be My Guest' from Beauty and the Beast and 'Pure Imagination' from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory were the priority for this evenings rehearsal. Just perfect.
Wednesday dawned and our 'hiking down under' group had to select a less strenuous walk than O'Reilly's, of last week. Margot had taken a nasty fall and her knee was still recovering. Earlier in the year we had walked and enjoyed a section of Bulimba Creek. It was decided to walk another leg. Again it was delightful to be walking in suburbia and yet feel as if we were in the country. 18 kms were covered and rarely did we see streets or housing. The creek gently flowed, the birds sang, the ducks swam and the wattle was blooming.
Our balmy winter days and crystal blue skies make 'hiking down under', pure bliss.
Yes. Just perfect.
I hope you enjoyed watching the moon rise and hiking in suburbia. I would love to read your comment.
