Thursday 28th April 2016


With Geoff doing his dutiful-son tasks, I headed out for some "Bush R&R". I had read that the walk from Woods Reserve to Gibraltar Falls is a good spot for finding Greenhood Orchids. NOT! 
The track is actually closed, due to the 2003 bush fire & a couple of severe floods through the area. So I decided to try & get some time exposure shots of the falls instead. Then I headed for the Square Rock walking track, again having no success with these rather elusive autumn orchids.

My last stop for the day was out at the Cotter Reserve & Dam, which has changed heaps since my first visit there in the early 1990's.

Gibraltar Falls - the time exposure needs more work I think

Well, after a week of Dad being in his new place, I think we may have sorted out the food arrangements to Mum's satisfaction. We met with the chef and an admin person, and I think we are all now singing from the same song sheet when it comes to Dad's food. Hopefully this will be one less thing for Mum to worry about.
