I saw a very cute wallaby along the way and in my excitement to capture him (with my camera) I took a few fuzzy photos, but as he was quite prepared to stand still and look cute I calmed down and got my settings right. And on I climbed.
These funny things, which for a strange reason reminded me of Ewoks from Star Wars were dotted throughout the bush. When I saw them my imagination went running off on a very weird tangent and it got to the point that these bushy little plants were giving me the heebie-jeebies as I was imagining someone leaping out from one and scaring the pants off me, and there I was alone, no-one within coo-ee of me. Sometimes it's best for me to put a lid on my imagination. But come on, you can see what I mean ... can't you?!
At the top, after a fair amount of puffing and panting, and stopping under the pretext of taking another photo, the view made the entire walk worthwhile, because this is what I saw after ducking under another tree and winding my way around another rock. Looking one way towards Squeaky Beach, and then the other towards Norman Bay.
Ahhhh, just what I needed. I headed home rejuvenated, happy and with over 200 photos on the camera. Sometimes it's nice to just sneak away and have some time with yourself.
Wishing you some quiet moments of reflection, without the scary looking plants.
