A WALK IN THE PARK 3

Time for another walk with TOH (The Other Half). We try to chose a different park each time. This time it was Springwood Conservation Park. The walk starts five minutes away from our front door and the circuit takes nearly an hour. It is pretty and shady with quite a few hills.
 Early morning light .

 We like this part even though its steep the path passes some nice rock formations and lovely lush ferns.

  7. This park looks like a wonderful place for a morning walk. I like the light you captured, as well as the ferns. Thank you for taking us along -- I didn't even get winded on the steep parts!

  8. Good morning Diane, you are an early bird like I. "Deep breath" in these lovely, lush environs. There is so much to see and admire; if one looks with open eyes!
    Wish you a happy stay with your family in LA you will be thrilled to babysit your gorgeous little Fox! Take care T.

  13. Marvellous images Diane - how blessed you are to have such a delightful environment "within Coo-ee" of your home. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Very picturesque place for "walkies".
    Seems TOH picks up steam on the "going home stretch"?????
    Methinks there just may be a hidden agenda in this "get fit" campaign???
    Any new brochures floating around in your study, unseen by TOH, on "Trekking in the Andes"???
    Have fun in LAX with the family.
    Cheers

  16. Hi Diane, I'd love that walk... That fern is so beautiful... AND the Banksia looks like corn-on-the-cob sticking up out of the ground... ha ha ha....

    Colin shared your itinerary with us... Hope you have a wonderful time in LA....

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  20. Ah yes, I enjoyed that walk. At least is looks quite flat unlike most of our mountain walks.

  21. That looks like a beautiful park. Perhaps there should be one day every year when bloggers throughout the world go to their local park and photograph it.

    1. Its called nagging. Finding flat walks. Finding a different place each time. Reminding him how fat and unfit he is.

  23. What beautiful surroundings, a walk I would love to go on but I enjoyed my virtual one, thanks Diane!

  24. I noticed right away how far away he was from you there at the end - but the home stretch makes me hurry too.
    I had to smile at Betsy's comment. At first glance I thought corn on the cob too.
    Beautiful surroundings and paved paths are definitely a plus.
    Lovely shots Diane!
