Dodging Showers

It’s not good when you wake up & read the forecast and it goes something like rain & possible thunderstorm….oh well I’m still going to Walpole. So I spent the day dodging the rain.

I just drove in the general direction of Walpole & stopped at whatever took my fancy like Peaceful Bay.

And then Conspicuous Bay

I did climb the lookout & feel totally unfit.

I drove around a drive trail by the water, checked out town and then hit every pothole on the Tingle Drive but hey I got to see the Giant Tingle Tree & Circular Pool.

And then I felt like a coffee, thought ild find one at the tree top walk, get there coffee van in luck…closed! So I did the tree top walk not once but twice just cause I could.

I also did the Forrest Walk where I saw Grandma Tingle & a spider orchid just hanging out on the edge of the path.

Now I’m hiding in the camp kitchen (which is no warmer than my car) avoiding the rain.
