Take care!

Take care!

This morning I went walking with the girls through Carine open space. This large recreation area contains footy pitches, soccer pitches and a cricket ground as well as a childrens playground and horse stables. Great facilities for the local communities. In the centre is a wildlife reserve with natural lake and a multitude of bird life. A great 3 km trail skirts this and is an excellent walk for me and the dogs – they love it and I get my daily vigorous exercise in. In one place this trail goes through a section of the nature reserve, all very peaceful and lovely – but for one thing! See the picture! Last summer when we were walking through this part of the trail the dogs started barking wildly in front of me and as I caught up with them I could see a huge (1.5 metres) “King Brown” snake crossing the trail in front of us. Almost all australian snakes are venomous and the King Brown certainly is. Luckily the dogs came to me as soon as I called (maybe it was the fear in my voice tone?) and we hightailed it back. I now only walk this trail in the colder months of the year!
