The whiff of Spring

I live near Red Hill. There is a fantastic walk from my place up a dirt track to the top of Red Hill. It takes about 20 minutes. It is steep and it is wonderful. Then when you get to the top, you walk along a track with kangaroos eating and sleeping everywhere.

There's a lovely Australian saying that someone who is a bit off the planet has a few roos loose in the top paddock, or a few sandwiches short of a picnic. There were quite a few roos loose today but only in spirit.

There were lots of other folk on Red Hill today. It's still winter but the afternoon was a bit warmer than it has been for the past two months and lots of people were out walking.

A walk after three days off work did me good. I have four more days of work and then another long weekend.
