YANCHEP NATIONAL PARK

2/4/2017 – A Walk with Meet Up group Active Outdoor Aussies

Nice early morning photo at the Park entrance, relaxed kangaroos having a feed.  With woodland and wetland, the park offers plenty of opportunity for spotting a wide variety of birds.

Like ducks (this one did a photo bomb).

Or many waterbirds, although there are none here!

We did a lovely 11kms woodland walk and passed a few caves along the way.

This one, the house of the wild dogs.

Saw lots of amazing limestone structures, tripped over limestone rocks and knobs in the ground.

Witnessed spiders and other critters in the rocks.

Well we were on the Ghost House Walking Trail, so coming across the Ghost House wasn’t too much of a surprise.  Alas, only ruins.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT WALK

1/3/2017 – Action Outdoors Association Weekly Walk

Having decided that I have to get really fit for my November Cape to Cape walk, I thought I would try to attend AOA’s weekly walks of about 10kms. 

While on the walk, the clouds built up and presented a perfect photo opportunity, along with the newly blonde hair (that won’t last long).

Here are the clouds coming, later in the evening amazing lightning bolts threw down to earth, but of course I was well out of the way by then.  That’s all.

SCULPTURES BY THE SEA part 4, COTTESLOE 2017

18/3/2017 – Even More Outside Sculptures

PLASTIC PARADISE

In the far right background, is an enourmous can.  Hold that thought.

CANSUMERISM

How to make a little home out of a giant can.

VESSELS

Look in the background just to the right of centre, you can see ‘Pause’ from part 2, but you are looking straight through it, not side on.

NARRATION OF THE SEA

INFRASTRUCTURE 5

I love this one, sort of an old fashioned boat, with loose building blocks so children can make things on and around it.  Their absorption in the project speaks volumes.

A close up of the two children who are rearranging some of the blocks.

HORIZON

You can see Cheryl standing behind this exhibit, or at least you can see her shorts.

DRAWING ON THE GROUND

And again the container ships in the background.

UNTITLED CORAL (AQUA)

SCULPTURES BY THE SEA part 3, COTTESLOE 2017

18/3/2017 – More Outside Exhibits

MOUNTAINS AIR – CIRCLES

The entire exhibition is teeming with photographers, so it was relatively easy to capture this shot.  I also love the container ships in the background waiting to get into Fremantle docks to offload their cargo.  It is such a Perth photo!  Plus all of the kids and adults out there doing their lifesaver practice.

THE BIG FISH EATS THE LITTLE ONE

I think this is one of the sculptures that had to be moved the next day as the extra high tides were threatening parts of it.

THE COSMIC  BLACKSMITH

The car to the left is also an exhibit (Shadows on the Hill), as are the spiky things to the right (called “Anemone”).

And here we have Cheryl posing with the Cosmic Blacksmith (who looks like he is really being screwed),  behind her you can see the back view of another sculpture called “Dearest”, from the front it looks like a sofa made up of an enormous pink octopus or Medusa maybe!

LEADEN HEARTS

FANTASIA

Here’s me sitting amongst the blobs, don’t worry about the hair, it didn’t last long, but it was fun to be blonde for a few weeks.  I got a shock every time I looked in the mirror.

Some friendly Asian tourists were snapping away with their cameras, and Cheryl didn’t have any trouble asking them to take a photo of us together.   Here we are sitting between bits of Fantasia in blustery Cottesloe.  We cycled there from Cheryl’s place, had a good look around and cycled back, about 30kms in all, so some good exercise was had.
