We walk through the suburban streets for 20 minutes, passing by a Jacaranda still in flower.Then we take a path through a small park which leads us to the edge of Lake Dennis. It is...
a very small man made lake. It was made by a pioneer called Dennis, who made the dam to hold water for his cattle and crops back in the 1800's. The land has subsequently been sold and developed into housing estates and the Dam donated to the council for the people.
We walk along the dam wall to the other side.
Admire the gracefulness of a vine crawling over a stump.....
...and some ducks busily foraging instead of posing for the camera.
Now we are on the other side you can look back across the lake in the other direction.
Admire the lily pads and the artistic fall of a dead tree before climbing a steep hill back into suburbia for a different way home.
