Another fun Waterside Wednesday
Remember to check on Barbara Jacksier's blog to see who is posting for this weeks Waterside Wednesday
Yesterday we did a 7.5km (4.6miles) return walk from Crib Point to Hastings - the walk is called the Bittern Coastal Wetlands Boardwalk.
You start off on a track that then takes you onto a boardwalk

The area comprises of a lot of mangroves and mudflats.

It is on the shoreline of Westernport Bay where you can see many different birds -Spoonbills, Ibis, pelicans,red necked stints and many more
It was a beautiful sunny Spring Day

The boardwalk and track

So many colours in and around the water

It was a great way to spend 1 hour 20 minutes of our day.

I think your country is gorgeous, sugar, and would visit it first on my list if I flew places, but, alas, if I can't drive there anymore I don't go so just keep posting pix of the "real" Australia. We have a woman in our church ward who is from there and she is astounding!

There is a coastal trail near where I live that looks just like this one. It's an hour round trip and I love to go there..., it doesn't have that fabulous boardwalk though!

Natural, rugged beauty... certainly a trail that would clear the cobwebs.

Pleasant day,

What a lovely place to wander. I especially love the next to the last photo. The colors near the water are pure bliss.
