This time, we turned left at the Main Yarra Trail out the back of Petty's Orchard and headed towards Eltham.The morning dewdrops on the pine trees reminded me of those fibre optic lamps from the 80's, with the lights on the end that change colours.
The Yarra River was fast and furious in some parts...
We crossed the bridge where the sky meets the water, and headed towards Eltham Lower Park...
...along Homestead Rd - where we met this guy...
...and back on the trail at Fitzsimons Lane to Candlebark Park, where we met this fun-gi.
Yep - another mushroom photo.Gravel tracks and wooden boardwalks are good for walking and cycling. Dogs on lead allowed. Kangaroos galore in the grasslands and a duck in a tree, pretending to be a kookaburra.
Had me fooled.
The return walk to Petty's took about an hour.
