On a walk with Grandma

Grandma and Pop are settling into their new home. We spent a lovely weekend with them. We went for a walk in a conservation area very close to their new home. The boardwalks through the forest and marshland were lovely. It seemed a popular place. I can see why!


I love the paperbark trees, with their black burn marks, and the soft white bark, surrounded by ferns. I think it's one of my favourite Australian scenes.

We met a few kangaroos on our walk. They are wild ones, so I couldn't get close for a better shot without the risk of scaring them off. They watched us warily between nibbles of grass.

We enjoyed our visit, as always. Thanks for your hospitality, Grandma and Pop!

WILD KANGAROOS! I can't wrap my head around that. I've only ever seen them in zoos :) That looks like a lovely park.

What a beautiful place. Looks like the perfect place to be at dawn - beautiful trees and birdsong. Please say there were birds there...

Curious ad you've got at the top of the blog. I wonder why Google linked Russian brides with your blog...?

Hi Emma,

What a beautiful place and a lovely day with family. Brisbane is a lovely place to live.

Thank you for keeping in touch, it was lovely to hear from you.
