Walking Update 18: Progress

Tuesday afternoon and time for our weekly walking date.

Since my previous update, we progressed to taking the longer route of 3.6km. Still not very far, you might think.  However as this route circles up a hill, down through a wooded area, uphill again then down a very steep incline over rocks and through ditches it is not  an easy stroll. We set out armed with walking sticks to help us over the rocky patches. After all we are not so young anymore!

We saw this fungus growing on a tree stump deep in the wooded area.

The route took us about an hour to complete. I ended up wanting to join this zebra who was having his afternoon siesta on the green lawn near the restaurant
