It was to be a fine day and was until I got towards the mountains. The rain was misty with no wind, the kind of rain I find enjoyable.
It was nice to see all the dairy cows that were Jersey; (we usually have Friesian where I live, the black and white ones.) and also many beef cattle.
There weren’t too many cars on the road and that pleased me as I had heard the car park wasn’t generous. I’m gaining in confidence with reversing, the camera was one of my most useful purchases.
It stopped raining when I got there and I enjoyed the walk through the bush on the great track and listening to the Bellbirds, though I have yet to see one. I was thinking the water may not be blue as there had been so much rain. The distinctive blue colour is created by glacial flour, the extremely finely ground rock particles from the glaciers.
Onto the side of river where there were some pretty little waterfalls and rock pools, with slippery rocks and I didn’t slip.
I decided go back via Lake Kaniere, knowing it wouldn’t look spectacular because of the weather.
The tractor in the old shed would be very old!
The road at first was a sealed narrow country type road then to gravel then to one way gravel. I was fortunate that I didn’t meet anyone though there were occasional minuscule passing areas.
I got out at the Dorothy Falls, very pretty, and to the lake through a short bush walk.
I took so many photos, every day I have, it’s difficult to choose.
It was a lovely day, very enjoyable, I like driving 🙂
