A Walk in the Mountains

Mt Wellington

We were up early and out the door for another bushwalk this morning!  This time a leisurely stroll to The Springs on Mount Wellington with my dear friend, Sam.

We had two little hitch-hikers (James & Scarlett), a dog (Maisy) and a blonde tour guide (Poppy) – who loves learning plant names!  She added the Tasmanian Snowberry, Pink Mountain Berry and Melaleuca to her repertoire this morning.  Bless.

Adventurous Spirit

I had a lovely birthday on Friday and was very spoilt by Nick, my friends and family.  Nick bought be a Kindle, which I am very excited about.

Initially when electronic readers were released I was quite dubious about reading a book ‘on-line’ as I love the written word on paper and actually holding a book. However after speaking to many people who are avid readers who did make the switch – said they would never go back!  I love reading, but what do you do with the all the books after their stories have been told? I have now downloaded a novel based in Paris and I look forward to my new era of reading.

Poppy was very clever and bought me some beautiful products from Lush (as we love our bath times together) and even wrote me a card:

Nick and I went out on Friday night with our friends, Juliet and Alistair. Juliet also celebrates her birthday on the 5th and it was nice to be out!

Yesterday we had a wonderful day on Bruny Island, where we caught the ferry and went for a walk to Grassy Point in Adventure Bay.  Little Poppy wasn’t in form due to a stubborn molar that is taking a while to surface, but I think she enjoyed the fresh air and hitching a ride in the backpack with Mum.  I love watching her discovering new aspects of nature as she picked up shells and rocks on the beach (with sandwich in hand).  She is such an adventurous little spirit.  xx
