walking in beautiful surroundings

Penny and I are fortunate in the variety of places we can walk together. Here's a recent location:


It's easy to take these wonderful places for granted, but I was reminded recently that such bushy surroundings occur only because of the work put in by local government,  indigenous people and groups of volunteers.

I thought this sign at the Willsmere billabong in Kew had an excellent explanation of why we dog-walkers need to respect the other users of our spaces, both human and non-human.



These plantings are newer than the one pictured at the top, but in time they will be just as lovely:

What a beautiful place for a walk and we see you're carrying your stick, Penny!

Molly, it's a great stick, made of fire hose material. She's had it for nearly fourteen years.
