Midweek Moment #55: Golden Sunsets

Midweek Moment #55: Golden Sunsets

At the lake where I walk, about halfway around the path there's gap in the fence. If I nip through, there's a dirt track that takes me past the line of Moreton Bay figs, out through the rushes, and into a marshy area that juts out into the lake. I need my proper...

Midweek Moment #54—Rain and Shine
