2014-10-11 Coombabah Lakelands_55We started off this easy 16km walk in a very chatty mood as some had been away from walking for some time with adventures to tell.  This walk covers some of the delta of the Coombabah Creek, Coomera River and Saltwater Creek catchment area with elevations from 0m to about 5m.  

The highest point of the walk would be Sovereign Island Bridge and we started to make our way towards it around the peninsula via Paradise Parade.  The idea was to walk to the middle of Sovereign Island Bridge to look down the Broadwater over the sandy Islands towards Wave Break Island.  We made our way along the edge of the Broadwater.

2014-10-11 Coombabah Lakelands_48After Smoko and the swim stop we made our way to Crystal Reef Park as this would allow us to connect to the many bushland corridors that have been left between the housing development and the main bush conservation areas in the district. We kept to the wet edges of the Coombabah Wetlands, Coombabah Creek and the Broadwater, enjoying some of the board walks which had recently been renovated.

Lunch was had at a shady area beside one of the Coombabah tributaries overlooking the water as well. After lunch we meandered back to our starting location and from there to Peter and Leonie’s place for refreshments and cake.  All had a wonderful chatty day in very pleasant sunshine – Colin.

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. The Way of Natural History, edited by Thomas Lowe Fleischner and published by Trinity University Press (Texas)
