It has been raining for the last 2 months. It has been hard to find a break in the weather to go for a morning walk. Then cabin fever sets in and one must take a chance and get out for a walk. A few days ago it had stopped raining for a while so I grabbed my umbrella and took off up the street towards Daisy Hill Forest. I hadn't even got to the end of the block before it started raining again, so up with the umbrella and I pushed on. I didn't have my camera so I used my phone to try to capture the wetness. One good thing about the sub tropics is that it isn't cold when it rains.
The hot and wet weather encourages weed to grow on the lake.
The magpie geese have come to visit the lake edge. There were more than I have ever seen here before.This was just one small group.
The rain has caused the Golden Penda Trees to profusely blossom this year. The streets are lined with these native trees from north eastern Queensland.
Now I had reached the forest. The rain eased off again but it was too wet and muddy to follow the hiking trails so I stayed on the ring road through the forest.
PS The sun stayed out all day today.
