Rails for Trails walk, southern end

Took Bella for a walk along the southern end of the old railway track that has been converted to a cycling/walking trail. This section starts at Gnarawary Rd and goes through magnificent forest including this stretch of karri trees. 

Yesterday I took Bella to the rapids in the Margaret River. It is less than 2 km away and if the wind is in the right direction, you can here the roar of the rapids from our house.

Cycling in Margaret River

Rob and Helen discovered that cycling to the Berry Farm was a very pleasant experience. They went via Rosa Brook Road, Rosa Glen Road then Davies Road and back into town and then back to us along the Wallcliffe Road cycleway. They really enjoyed the Berry Farm and some of the wineries they passed. The roads did not have much traffic and are very scenic. Rob is just posing here on his bike.

Rails for Trails walk

Walking with Bella on the southern Rails for Trails section that starts at Boodjidup Road. It goes through beautiful forest and sections of bogs as well as grass tree pockets. The trail carries on south through a working farm which is also interesting.

Snail Orchid looking out

First Snail orchid is showing its pretty face. This is probably Pterostylis dilatata, the Robust Snail Orchid. It is growing just in front of our garden shed.
