MONDAY PHOTO OF THE WEEK

I hope everyone had wonderful weekends :)

My partner Alex and his Dad went on a bush walk up Mount Mitchell this weekend. They have been meaning to do it for a while, but every time they have planned to go it either rains or someone gets sick. This weekend was perfect, the weather was beautiful and everyone was healthy.

While I stayed at home arting it up on Saturday, they set out on their big climb. It's about a 2 hour drive to the mountain and then another 3 hours up to the top and back. I wish I had gone, but I was afraid that my back would cause trouble and I would wreck their outing. They had fun and Alex said I would be able to do the climb no worries. So next time I am definitely going.

Alex bought back some pictures for me and I thought I would share the beautiful view with you for my photo of the week.

This was one of the views from the top of the mountain


Some fungi growing on trees


Isn't nature beautiful


Alex said the top of the mountain was covered in these grass trees. They grow really, really slow and are worth quite a bit to buy because of their age

Hi Michelle,

I just thought I'd write to let you know that you've done a great post! All the pics that Alex had taken are all nice! I have to agree with you totally, nature is beautiful, especially when the air is full of the sounds of birds and other animals!

Love Brad!
