Springbrook Park Walk

Time is flying by and I’ve been too busy having fun to post very munch.

Here are some photos from a forest (bush they call it here) walk in Springbrook National Park, about an hour drive inland from the Gold Coast. This bush area is on a plateau. Very lush and full of the sounds of birds and insects.

Besides the bush walking, we’ve been in the ocean a few times and I’ve discovered how much I love it. Warm water and lots of surf. Needless to say, we are enjoying the trip.

  6. Oh my, I’ve not seen many pictures of Australia such as these. Such lovely country. Inge, you warmed me up just seeing you in shorts and a tank top. All I did outside today was go out on the deck to feed the birds. It’s -22 right now. It was a beautiful, clear sunny day though.
    Love hearing about your adventures.
