I went to my favourite place in the world for a hike by myself, which I need to do every so often or else I go mental. It involved getting up before dawn to take the dog for a walk and then off I went to the Dandenongs. As tends to happen when I'm at the hills, I was grinning like an absolute fool and almost skipping at a couple of points. Yes, I am a hippy at heart and love my special place immensely. Particularly when I see wallabies just hanging out at the side of the track calmly eying me off! Unfortunately she wasn't calm enough to stay and let me photo her, but, you know. We totally bonded! ;)
After realising that I'm fitter than I thought and could hike a lot faster up hills I never used to be able to, I thought I would take a new track since I had the time. And I'm glad I did because I found a beautiful spring glade!
Even though I hate pretty much everything about the Twilight movie, this reminded me of the clearing in the woods in that movie with some tiny little blue flowers. And even though the air smelt a little like onions because of all of the onion plants, it made it look gorgeous and lush. And you can hold you nose.
Here's to frolicking in the ferns :)
