The sky was blue, the breeze was slight and warm, it was a lovely summers morning to go for a walk.
It was a special walk around the Lake Circuit at Lysterfield Lake.
It was an easy walk through the bush on one of the fire road tracks.
At times I felt a little lonely because most of the time there was only me on the track.
At times it felt a little scary. What if I took a wrong turn and got lost, it a very large park.
Yet it was delightful to walk in nature, in peace and serenity, enjoying the beauty of the Australian bush.
Grateful that a Place like Lysterfield Lake is so close to home and that I am able to go and enjoy it.
On the way back I cut through the conservation area and found a friend.
It was a cute echidna amongst the grass.
Some people call them spiky ant eaters.
They are spiky and have a weird beak to eat ants with.
I think they still look so beautiful and cute.
It just went about what it was doing, probably just looking for food, and ignored me staring at as it I had found a treasure.
I stayed for a while to admire it as it went about its daily life.
I even took some pictures to capture the moments.
It was a delightful walk that took me one hour.
Then I sat with my husband at the cafe overlooking the lake having a coffee.
Today on the January NaBloPoMo question is: How do you find the energy to write when you’re not in the mood?
This was a great question for today as I am so tired that I don’t really want to write anything. So even though I am not in the mood I have done a blog post because it is part of this challenge I am doing. So I think doing a challenge like the January NaBloPoMo encourages me to find the energy to write. Another thing that helps me is having some photo’s to work a post from. Whilst I am still learning the answers to this question, so I hope during my readings of other bloggers completing this challenge I might find a few gems to answer this question.
Todays post was inspired by an echidna!
Wishing you a great day/evening.
