The sun was shinning and the birds were chirping and there was no way I was staying at home. But after driving up the coast the day before I didn't want to be out all day again.
So after a quick search of the local councils website I picked a short walk (not so short because I'm not so fit) not to far from here.
About 5mins into the 90min walk I found this cool little creek, the water was clear but tannin stained, and there was an amazing array of bubble formations, I filled an 8GB card in 10mins and had to pull myself away to complete the walk and gain the view from the top of the hill.
Needless to say I filled the rest of my second 8GB card with bubbles on the way back down the track.
Annual leave has been over for a couple of weeks and the blog has been neglected while I get back into the swing of things at work.
My poor camera has been sitting in it's bag for over ten days, the poor thing. I thought I had better give it some exercise, But with house work to do and dinner to make an expedition was out of the question.
Looking out the window at my also neglected front garden I decided on a quick pic essay of what's living and what's dying in the garden.
Spring has just begun to take hold, the frosts have stopped and flowers are appearing but because I'm such a bad gardener at the moment there's a lot of old growth browning off and dying too.
My son and I went for at little walk around the Tasmanian Arboretum to make the most of my last day of annual leave, before heading back to a footy packed weekend of press photography.
Spring has sprung at the Arboretum, the Magnolia's are blooming though they've taken a bit of a pummeling by the looks of things.
It was great to get out in the sun with my son through he wasn't so wrapped when the camera turned to him.
Taking advantage of the whole family being together this weekend we took a road Trip to Tullah on the Westcoast of Tasmania, and explored a couple of the lakes for fishing potential - and photographic potential too.
