Petty's Orchard to Fitzsimon's Lane Walk

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...
Yarra River Templestowe...and tranquil as an outback billabong in other sections.Yarra River Templestowe
We crossed the bridge where the sky meets the water, and headed towards Eltham Lower Park...

Yep - another mushroom photo.

Had me fooled.
 The return walk to Petty's took about an hour.
