My Morning Walk

is not really exercise to me. If I go early in the morning, it's quiet and peaceful. I like to walk slowly, take deep breaths, and relax...

View from the top of the park


Near the start of the walk. TJ loves to sniff around all the bushes here


Walking up the gently sloping hill with the sunlight coming through the trees


Walking down the hill towards the lake


View from near the bottom of the hill


Near the turn-around point. You can see how strong the sun is even at 7am


Heading back up the hill


TJ enjoying a paddle near the end of the walk

Nice area! It's good to have those kind of walks-like walking meditation. :-)

Wow Charlotte. It looks absolutely beautiful. I've noticed it's the simple things in life like leisurely walks in gorgeous surroundings and taking it all in that really makes a difference to my days.

Hi Raechelle, we really like living in this area. And yes, it is kind of like meditation!

Hi Shelley, yes I agree with you. It's a lovely way to start the day.

I can't believe that is in the inner city area of Melbourne - looks great!

Hi Liz, we are about 8km from the city centre, and this park is about 5 minutes' walk from our house. TJ literally drags me there and I'm very happy to let him off the lead to run around once we get there!
