Bull Creek

We are still having typical spring weather - it's all over the place.
Today is blue skies, white fluffy clouds and a coolish breeze, but the temperatures are supposed to get to a high of 16 degs C.
Not like it was on Sunday afternoon when a small group of us went 70 kilometres down the road, half of which were gravel, to Bull Creek.
 It was a lot of fun even though the wind was cold and blowing a gale it stayed fine. We did some bush walking,
the kids played on an old tire swing in one of the clearings,
And then we headed for the beach.

The tide was out so there were a lot of rock pools
to go exploring in. And mussel beds to avoid.

It was far too cold for swimming but that didn't deter the little boys, or some of the bigger ones for that matter, from getting wet to the waist and having to go home wrapped in blankets or towels.
 Boys will be boys!
On the way home we passed this World War One memorial  in the middle of nowhere, so I couldn't resist taking a photo.
It's still being cared for, the grass is kept cut and scrub cleared, and I imagine there is still a small gathering there every
Happy Thanksgiving
to all readers in the USA.

  5. What a lovely walk you went on - your beach looks lovely.
    I always wonder how it is that children don't feel the cold the way adults do.
    By the way, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. :)
