A walk in the park

26 August 2003

Aah, the last few days have been stunning. Bright blue skies and glowing sunshine. I’ve been spending lots of time outside – anything to get out of the house, away from the computer and soak up some vitamin D. Today we couldn’t resist taking a drive to Kings Park and checking out the new walkway.

According to the brochure… it extends 620m through the Botanic Garden… with elevated walkways… and a cool steel and glass bridge. It was nice.

I really liked the engraved rusted steel artwork. I enjoyed running my fingers over the little bumps and patterns of the animals.

There was also a funky garden full of mini boab trees! I’ve always wanted to see a real boab tree! They looked awesome! Even though they were just mini ones. They looked like cartoon trees. Very cute.
