bushwalk

We went for a bushwalk this afternoon. Just down the behind the houses on our street and along the firetrial.

Matthew set the pace...


but later needed a rest...



as we all did, down at the water hole (what is left of it).



Bethany is learning to stop and look at flowers.


We saw Flannel Flowers, Mountain Devils, Swamp Baeckea, Flax Wattle, Coral Heath, Crinkle Bush, Trigger Plants, Saw Banksia and some others which I am saving for a new series of 'which flower is this?'.

We also managed to see some native fauna, which because it can move, is even more difficult to spot than the flora.

A water skink...



and a baby dragon...



... and, of course, the elephants.
