My Morning Walk - Part 1

Feeling a little like a tourist this morning, I decided to photograph my morning walk to share.  It's amazing how much we take for granted.  Blogging has opened my eyes and encouraged me to look at things a bit differently. I must say upfront - my  photography skills are a little ordinary and my camera pretty tame!

However, it has occurred to me that due to so much fast-speed development happening so quickly around us (as mentioned here)  a lot of what I see on my morning walk this morning may not be there in a few years time.  Sad but true.

So I decided to take some photos this morning.  I walk every morning for an hour or so, usually between 7 - 8am.  I drive my son (correction I should say that he now drives with his "L" plates proudly displayed)  the 10 minutes to the bus stop.  The I drive back to local park where I start and end my walk. 

This is the rural part of the walk - I decided to just let the photos speak for themselves.

This is where the rural part ends, and it's back into the park.  More in the next exciting installment!
That's my little walk for the day and I must say I enjoyed photographing it.   When I'm sitting on that rocking chair in the home, I'll be able to look back on this post  - and photos that I may not have taken otherwise.  Thanks for coming along on the walk with me. 

...... and if you have made it this far ......

My reply to your comments on previous post:

librarygirl - thanks for your comment.  I know that you have been through similar - sad times indeed.

**Anne**  - thanks Anne, yes they are cute.  Like puppies they don't always stay that way!

delia hornbook - thanks for your comment.  Bantams are cute and I'm hoping to grow a little flock of them.

Ali  - thanks indeed Ali.  Things are settling down a little now.   Bantams are indeed cute and I don't know why we haven't owned more of them before this stage.

little black cow blog - it's amazing isn't it.  We have had different chook varieties over the years, but bantams are definitely the cutest.

Tasmanian Vegan and Minimalist - I don't usually name chooks for some reason, but this little creamy hen has also been called Little Banty. 

Little Blue Mouse - thank you too!  I liked the photos of your chickens - a nice mix I think.

saving for travel - thanks SFT.  They are a little bit flighty at the moment, I'm hoping they will settle a little as they get older.
Cheers for now - Wendy

What a lovely walk. We have rain down in Central Victoria. The horses have been moved into a new paddock have had their ¨hooficures¨"done this morning, have just been wormed and quite frankly, want to have as little to do with me as possible. The dogs are fast asleep on their bed, the chickens are hiding from the rain and the ducks are splashing around in puddles.

Thank you for sharing your lovely piece of blue sky, with a hint of sunshine and gorgeous walking pics.

What a lovely way to start the day, and a nice way to warm up too. Hasn't the weather been glorious?

You've inspired me to go for a nice walk today and take photos. Thanks.

I remember I did so back in April and May and lots of people commented on the post....why...because as others have commented it feels like we've been on the walk with you.

Keep up the excellent posts.

Mmm I like the scenery. It is not unlike my scenery around where we live in Tasmania. I never ever tire of it, golly it's like being on holiday all the time. I used to live in the UK and no matter what time of year it never felt as good as it does in Tasmania- any time. Tasmania and indeed Australia is just mighty fine !

What a lovely walk.

I didn't notice until you mentioned on my blog about the scavenger hunt, that there's only a few days to go, and I've only got three so far!
