Leslie spotted two of her friends.
A short rest stop.
The sun was on our backs.
We enjoyed the creek reflections.
Weeds took on a special beauty in the early morning light.
A distant view.
Sensational waterlilies were enjoyed to the max.
Decaying but beautiful.
Unbelievable that almost 12 months ago, the footbridge I am standing on, was totally covered by flood waters. A boat that went adrift was caught in its railings.
7 kms under the belt, time to relax in the garden paradise of a very special friend.
As the timed neared 10am, Leslie Ladybird and I stopped to check our newly planted begonias before diving into the pool to refresh our feet.
I was able to extend our return journey, giving a final distance of 16 very rewarding kilometres. My motto is " It is not the distance. It is the journey" So true this morning. I will also add, "You don't have to travel far, to find nature's beauty."
