Walking in the Rain .....


~   Australian native flora   ~


 I hadn't planned to take a walk in the rain
but on driving past Morialta Conservation Park
on a very wild, wet and stormy day
 I noticed a break in the clouds and decided to
take to the hills with brolly and camera in hand.
I soon forgot about hailstones and muddied boots
and delighted in the beauty of our native flora and fauna.

A cuddly koala bear nestled in and snoozing amid the eucalyptus gums   ~

There were many Koala's along the walking trails
and it occurred to me that they had most probably
made their way down closer to the floor of the park
in order to shelter from the high winds

Oh my! The koala is just the sweetest. Did you go to the falls? They must have been spectacular with all the rain we have had.

Arija: Yes I walked to the Falls and what a stunning sight. There was so much water gushing over the top that it was impossible to hear anyone talking.

glad you stepped out for that walk in the bad weather Dianne. Lovely photos and a bonus to see the koalas closer like you did. I believe you're having some pretty crisp mornings! Carole, at snaphappyonline.blogspot.com
