An Autumn Series - Rainforest Beach Walk

May 20, 2013


A few minutes past our tree-house is a path that winds through the forest and down onto a little beach.

The walk is so lovely at this time of year.  A little bit crisp in the shade of the trees, but always incredibly still, green and quiet.  


It is a such a magical place.  Hard to believe there are houses nearby nestled into the bush.


After only a few minutes walk, it opens out to our lovely bay.  

Autumn is the perfect time for a bare foot stroll - the beach is often empty although a little on the chilly side now for me to be putting my feet in the water.  Our little girl doesn't seem to have quite the same cold sensitivities as I though...


We love seeing the ducks, seagulls, and beach-loving dogs.  Often we take treats.


On our way home, at the edge of the forest path are some exotic trees; oak, maple, elm and liquid amber.  Poppet had a great time gathering up a bunch of beautifully coloured autumn leaves, and together we toted them all home.


I might make her a little foraging bag soon, as she is at the stage where she loves to collect "treasures" on our walks.


I have just the autumn project in mind for the leaves which I will share very soon...
Today was an amazing day.  I hope yours was too.
