My scenic spot

Fandango’s FOWC: Picturesque

Going for the short drive from home into the mountains, always take a thermos to have a cup of tea, a snack of some sort depending on when I get to the picnic table at The Raspberry Lookout. Perhaps a biscuit or two or if lunch time, probably a salad roll.

Always be prepared for anything. One time it was a lovely sunny warm day at home but at Raspberry it was about 10c colder. Shorts was a bad decision. Lucky there is always a picnic blanket in the car.

I found it hard to pick the most picturesque

    1. There’s a number of really fab spots within an hour from my place, slower if you encounter a truck at the start of the climb up the range. Luckily there’s a lookout about one-third of the way so you can let the truck go for a while and hope he is close to the top by the time you catch up.

    1. Thanks Elke. I wanted to pop up there the other day but remembered there is school holidays. Don’t like people hanging around at my spot. The ones I dislike are those who drive in jump out of the car, take a photo, get in and drive away.
      That’s like stealing a piece of Raspberry Lookout. If you stay and look you don’t just inhale and go, you exhale as you sigh at the beauty of the day

      1. It’s one of the problems with my spot. Castle gardens are naturally overrun by towns people out for a stroll and tourists. I remember making fun of tourists when I was only knee-hi. They were so annoying and we weren’t allowed on the gras (that was a thing then) and they would get away with it while we were scolded by passers-by. But if one gets up early enough (a chore for me) or if the weather is bad enough it’s not too overcrowded.

  1. I can see why you like to go there. I also prefer not having anyone else around and just taking it all in for as long as I want. I dislike when people make lots of noise or are playing loud music somewhere like this (or in lots of other places too, I must admit.).

    1. I went to the top of a mountain to take in the serenity. There were a couple of cars in the car park so I expected to be people up there. Once at the top, there were Wedged-tailed eagles circling overhead, the gentle rustle of a breeze through the gum tree leaves and two elderly women blathering on about the ironing or cake baking, who knows what non-stop.
