It was wonderful to finally have a walking Wednesday where we actually walked, albeit on a mainly flat surface and only 8 km.
We have often walked along the sea front at Wynnum. Our friend Jenny now lives here and discovered a trail in the opposite direction to where we normally walk. She suggested coffee and raspberry muffin on her balcony before setting off. We didn't disagree.
We were in good spirits as we set off along the foreshore.
It was a warm day, but with a moody, low cloud cover.
I was annoyed I didn't get more of the egret, but the glare made it very difficult to see what the shot would hold.
A lazy day for some.
We were in total awe of this massive, old gum tree.
We found another colony of bats.
The tide was rising in the mangroves.
White faced heron.
After walking along a boardwalk through the mangroves for some 500 metres, our path took us along a backwater to a bird hide.
There was an abundance of pied oyster catchers, grey tailed tattlers, black tailed godwits and ducks.

On our return journey there were lovely reflections as we passed Wynnum Creek.
It was wonderful to be back in the great outdoors with my merry band of friends.
I would love to read your comment.
