Let’s go for a drive

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #203: Local Vistas

Everyone ready. Get comfortable. Put some music on

OK, turn left out of the gate and down the road

Turn left and head down to Lilydale

Go past the Ospreys nest

Yes someone has to open the gate

and here we are at Lilydale. Want to go for a quick swim?

Back in the car we rattle over the old wooden bridge and are soon at Cangi

It is rather peaceful and a good place to grab a bit to eat

Back onto the highway and head up the Gibraltar Range

First stop is always at the Raspberry Lookout

Where we will find native wildflowers like these Paper Daisies

or other native flowers with Blue-banded Bees

and perhaps a Nobbi Lizard sun baking on the rocks

among the yellow Paper Daisies

Just a bit further up the road is Washpool National Park where the first stop is Granite Rocks

and then further into the valley and into the rainforest where the giants live

Time to head for home back down the highway

and down the road to home

Through the gate

and time for a cup of tea

Down the Road

Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: The Road Not Taken

Down the road
what will we see
a road lees travelled
just you and me.


We enjoy the journey
the music plays loud
we both sing along
far from the city and the crowd.

In the mirror
the road and dust
we drive and drive
to the end we must.

Twists and turns
around fields of green
so many things
we find to be seen.

At last we are there
the place we can stay
let’s enjoy our picnic
rest, love and play.
