Walkers: John (leader), Christine D, Christine J, Pam D, Melanie, Werner and Vangie, Colin

Distance - 17.7k 

2020-07-11 Lake ManchesterEight walkers today to experienc the walking tracks around Lake Manchester. Unlike the recce, lots of cars at the car park indicating many people were already on the many tracks.  Weather was overcast with the threat of some showers, but we were lucky all day and we only experienced some mist and sunshine managed to poke through at times.  The views of Lake Manchester were enhanced because of the mist and low light.  Lots of bird song as we made our way around - Colin

Walkers: Julie (leader), Christine D, Christine J, Pam D, Cassie, Jackie, Vangie and Werner, John, Colin

Distance - Araucaria+ 5.5k Thylogale+ 11.5k 

We m2020-06-27 D'Aguilar NPet at Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre at 8.30 am and walked the Araucaria Track which is 5 kms return. It was a nice easy walk and it mostly follows along the shores of the Enoggera Reservoir. As we were walking back along the track we met Christine J as she was a bit later because she'd had a tradesman coming for an emergency. We walked further along another track and had our morning tea up in an area overlooking the water which had some timber seating where I think that maybe some talks are held when the centre is open.

Distance - 13.9k 

Eight walkers today to experienc the walking tracks around Wyaralong Dam and to climb to the summit of Mt Joyce.  Lots of cars at the car park indicating many people were already circulating on either the walking or MTB tracks.  Weather was overcast with the threat of some showers, but we were lucky all day and we only experienced mist and slight drizzle at the summit of Mt Joyce.  The views of Lake Wyaralong were enhanced because of the mist and low light.  Hard work to get to the summit but there are easier routes which we will experience next time we are out here - Colin

2020-05-30 Toolona Creek

2020-05-30 Toolona Creek

Walkers: Christine D, Julie and Bruce, John, Julie C, Colin

Distance - 18.4k 

Only six walkers today but they experienced the best Toolona Creek Circuit has to offer with waterfalls flowing as good as we have ever seen.  Sunny to start and as we walked up the creek mists started to form and we were able to see the best of the Antarctic Beech and the magic of the water droplets forming on verdant green mosses.  Very cool along the border and the lookouts were a complete whiteout.  Again many, many people on the track enjoying the relaxed Covid-19 restrictions.  We noted that the car park was full and cars lined the road all the way down to Duck Creek Road - Colin

Two new members (Priscilla and Tony) joined us on a very warm and humid day.  After the recent rains water was everywhere and where there was water there were clouds of mozzies.  We had Smoko at the road end of the runway before continuing on the boardwalk which we had to abandon as impassable.  Only one koala seen today.

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
