A WALK IN THE PARK 2

It was time to take TOH (The Other Half)  out for another airing walk. This time he chose Undrewood Park.
There is a manicured part of the park that is used for weddings and other functions.

 It is very pretty and has plenty of water birds.

This messes with your eyes.
 A little further away there is a more natural wetland with a boardwalk around the lake.
 TOH is not smiling


But he took an arty farty shot.

  2. Your photography never ceases to "knock my socks off." Beautiful. Wish I could make a trip to Australia, but I fear it is too late now with my health.

  3. My friend, William, the Better of the "TOH", get an apple and arrow, place on "TOH's" head and threaten to shoot. That will stop Mrs, the other "TOH" from having you looking so distressed wandering around all these recently found lakes! Thankfully this last episode of photos didn't have you in "DEEPEST AFRICA" doing the Mr. and Mrs Livingstone stunt.
    My suggestion, albeit modest, go buy a couple of those plastic snakes and thrown on these "walkies" in front of "she who must be obeyed"! It will work wonders. Good luck William!
    Cheers

  5. It does look like a lovely place to get married, with the water lilies in bloom. I am laughing at the sad picture of Bill and your comments. :-)

  6. What a lovely park and TOH needs to lighten up! LOL Enjoy the scenery and good for you getting him out and about.

  7. It looks super. I would not call it a park but a nature reserve.

    Greetings,

  8. My dear Mrs "TOH"
    I do go for 'walkies'!!
    Let me see? I walk to get the papers, I walk to the rail station, I walk up escalators to the Harlequin Club and I walk up and down the aisles of W/worths at Nundah (sometimes many times as I can't find what I am looking for). That is a lot of "walkies"! I even "run" and chase the wretched Ibis and for more exercise I throw stones at the crows and Indian Mynas!
    Plenty of exercise, I think! ha ha.
    Cheers

  9. Hi Diane, so you took Bill(TOH) out for another walk. That's great! Your big white bird is a Eastern Great Egret. It does not look much different than the Great Egrets I see here. Next time you might need to take a bird field guide with you, so you can Id all the birds. Only Kidding! The lake is pretty with the waterlilies or are they lotus? Love the bird of course, I love any bird you might want to show me. Thanks for sharing, have a great day!

    1. No, they are not Lotus. Thanks for the ID. I do have a bird book but I'm lazy. It is easier to ask you, my personal, on line, bird expert.

  10. Your walks are wonderful photo opportunities. That first photo's reflections are beyond beautiful!
    That third one did mess with my eyes but I like that it does make you look twice to figure out what you are really seeing.
    Out for an airing - I must use that with my hubby. :)

  11. Are you going away for Easter? Last night, my husband was caught in a traffic jam because so many are going away.

    Tonight, we are watching Chariots of fire, as our Easter fellowship. Did you watch it in the 70s?

    1. No we are going away after Easter. I remember the film from the 70's but I don't remember seeing it. I was busy with babies in the 70's.

    1. He was okay but he's never happy about going for a walk but he does enjoy filming or taking photos.

  18. OOps I meant to say...thank you for taking "us" along!

  19. If this is yet another spot near your home, then you've definitely got the "location, location, location" thing right. It looks so inviting even I would consider going walkies.

    1. It is a five minute drive to Underwood Park. I have walked there through the Daisy Hill Forest with my bushwalking club. It took about 1 hour there and 1 hour back. It was fun.

  20. More terrific photos. And the TOH designation made me smile. I like it. :)

  21. Hello from TOH:
    I'm not sure what Diane is on about. I DO walk a lot. I walk from the breakfast table down into my office. I walk up for morning tea, I walk down again then walk up again for lunch and if I'm feeling very energetic, I even walk down to the letterbox. Then after lunch I do it all again, so there is no need to drag me out into the wilderness. Cheers and Happy Easter everyone, TOH.

  22. Ah good for you William, "TOH".
    We must stand up for our principles and not be dictated to "by they who must be obeyed".
    I have even climbed the wretched railway overpass stairs twice today, akin to climbing Mt.Everest!!!!!
    Anyhow it is best to be on the side of caution when trooping in the swamplands that you are being subjected to - Joe Blakes might be waiting for that moment to strike.
    You, Wilbo43, have my total support.
    Now on other matters, how is the asparagas and slow cooked eggs dish preparations going?

  24. Ha ha Diane -- toh doesn't look like he's really enjoying nature's beauty at all. (Uh, need I say that the whole post looks quite familiar?)

  25. So beautiful! This is my first visit to your blog. I have to admit that I was attracted by the cool blog title!

  26. ha ha, chuckled at TOH and Colins' comments - poor babies!!
    Loved the arty farty shots too - that's exactly what I call some of mine.
    Good looking park :D)
