Want to come for a Wander?

I had a lovely walk this afternoon with my Mister. We have been exploring a few other trails in the park where we walk....some are quite steep...great while you are walking down them...
but you have to walk back up them. Lots of puffing and panting take place! Still we manage most days. It's nearly 4kms and definitely not a flat wander...not bad for a couple of old fogies, I think anyway.
It gets steeper!!! We had the cutest little wallaby perched on a rocky ledge watching us struggle up the path.
We were quite high and could see over to the distant mountains..
Even though things are a bit dry I love the ferny gullies and rocks.
We found an old tree that was probably a forest apartment block...
as there were several hollows and one had a very nice leafy nest...
I hope you enjoyed your little wander with me and weren't toooo bored.
A little bit of stitching has been happening. I needed a little break from Blessings so I got to work on the applique on the border of Hexie UFO.
It is coming along nicely. I seem to be doing a lot of needle turn of late. Love it!
Today is a special day. Our eldest Grandson is celebrating his 8th birthday. He is growing up so fast.
he celebrated with a Lego party on Saturday and today with cupcakes for his classmates.
Happy Birthday and kisses xxx
Some of  my very favourite people were born in February!
Have a lovely week folks.
Namaste and Blessings,
