A walk to the waterfall

On Wednesday last week we decided to take a walk up the mountain to look at the waterfall / stream that feeds the house fresh stream water with Sir N. 
In the beginning of the walk he complained bitterly but we persevered and had a wonderful time together.   This experience taught me not to give up too soon with young kids when going on a nature walk.

Here are a few of the sights we saw

The start of our walk

I love the shapes of the trees

Sir N found this rock and wanted to sleep there for the night !

Nearly there

The sun has disappeared behind the mountain. Time to go home.
I'm thirsty Dad!
This place holds special memories for Paul and I as we courted up here.  20 years ago we used come up here with his Dad and the school groups who had come to the farm for outward bound camps.  Paul and his Dad used to rig up abseiling ropes and the classes would climb up here and enjoy the day exploring.



  1. I'm really enjoying seeing your photos, Chareen. The trees are stunning - as are all the pictures. I love the sunset picture, too. It looks like such a beautiful place to visit.

    God bless:-)

    1. It is a really beautiful place and I cried today when we had to leave.
