A lovely day for a walk

I have a love hate relationship with the town I live in. It's a bit too suburbia for my liking, but it's still just enough rural to be close to most things I need without being a concrete jungle. We have beautiful views and lots of natural bush. 

Most some nights I take Koa (who I call Boof - isn't it funny how you spend hours deciding on your pets name, and then never call them it?!) Sorry, tangent, where was I, yes, I take Boof for a walk down to the waterhole in Olinda Creek. Back in time the locals all used to swim here, you couldn't now, so I guess the creek was bigger, and cleaner then, but it's still a lovely place to walk, and Koa loves to swim there.

Yesterday I took my awesome new camera down with us and played around. I think I need a tripod because I just can't seem to hold it still enough, it's a little more sensitive than my old Olympus point and shoot!

5. Quinns Reserve, back in 2001(?) we had a huge bush fire here, its about 5 houses away from us. Scary
