I am sure we all have somewhere that we call our happy place .For me it is the Cataract Gorge , a natural river gorge about 15 minutes from home. The natural beauty of this area and its many walks never seems to fail me but I do admit to enjoying it more at this time of year with its pretty Autumn tones and lack of visitors, selfish I know.
It is a great place for walking as there are many walking paths , some flat and easy , others steep and
tricky but providing stunning views. It was always popular as a family outing when the children were growing up, to either walk, picnic or swim in the pool during Summer.
I also found it a very healing place as I grieved following the loss of my daughter several years ago.
Every vista evokes memories , I remember swimming, socialising and sunbaking on the rock pools under the suspension bridge as a teenager and I have the sun spots to show for my lack of sun smarts.
The resident peacocks always provide colour and delight the visitors.They were introduced here in the late 1800’s as part of the parklands area that surrounds the gorge.
Today’s outfit is rather casual and all has featured many times previously but this is real life not one that is picture perfect and my clothes are worn on repeat.My now slightly faded black Moyuru pants , black knit and leather Harry Who jacket were paired with multi-coloured beads and Clomp comfy lace-up shoes with white and red eyes, that doesn’t really show.
Apologies not only for being absent from blogging but not visiting others, computer problems hopefully now sorted.
