Cumberland State Forest

This is where we went for our nature walk on the weekend.

We have recently experienced rain and were hoping that some of the creeks would now have water - sadly, still mostly dry, even though it is winter in drought stricken New South Wales.

We all enjoyed the family walk - one son started off complaining but got into the family hilarity - even when he fell off the path and into the mud!

He took this photo with his mobile phone - we were intrigued by the lichen on the slim tree trunk. And we talked about mosses and lichen...I need to look up more info as I think I was a bit sketchy in my details!

Sounds great, Leonie!

If you find out how to *remove* lichen let me know. It has taken control of the canvas awning over our front porch and it is now a lovely lime green color. lol
