2015 08 22 slaughter falls et al 83 20150823 1084540823We started our walk from the J.C. Slaughter Falls Picnic Area. John and Sue walked down to the Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens and the rest of us set off and walked the Hovea Track, Slaughter Falls, (not running) the Aboriginal Art Trail and then up the Summit Track to the Mt. Cootha Lookout.

We decided to wait and have our morning tea up there sitting on the rock walls. Lovely views all over Brisbane. What a surprise we got when John and Sue appeared. They'd caught the bus up there and found us all sitting on the wall. Some went to order coffees and found that they had to wait quite a while as there was a long queue there and so we all just took our time then and sat and talked a while longer as some still needed to drink the coffees before we set off again. John and Sue then ordered coffees as they had plenty of time as they were going to catch the 12.05 bus back down to the gardens.

We arranged to all meet up again at the Cafe at the Mt Cootha Gardens for 2 pm so as we would all have time to look around the gardens. The rest of us then drove down to the gardens and set off to have a look around.  Quite a few of us sat on a rock wall overlooking  the lake to have our lunch. It was lovely watching the scrub turkeys, ducks, the big lizard and a turtle.

We then had a look at the Fern House, Tropical Dome Display, the Cacti and Bromeliad House, Japanese Gardens and the Bonsai House. Some of the small trees were over 50 years old.  The Japanese Gardens were really beautiful with lovely Azaleas, other bright flowers and lovely shaped trees and water features. We then walked up to the National Freedom Wall and looked at the names there. A lovely memorial to those who served for our Country.

We then walked to the Lookout and saw lovely views of Brisbane and all the beautiful colours of the Bougainvilleas.  After that we set off on a quick walk back down the hill to meet Graham & Helen and John & Sue at the Cafe for 2 pm. There was a Wedding Reception being held in the Restaurant and quite a few people in the Cafe but the service was quite quick and we had our cuppa and milkshakes in no time.

Sue had been to see the Orchid Display and also Grahame and Helen and were telling us how lovely they were and so I decided I'd like to have a look at them as well and so dragged Colin along too. In the end I think that he really enjoyed looking at them and we both took heaps of photos. Some of them were so unusual and just so beautiful. 

It turned out to a good day as the weather stayed fine for us after a few showers during the night - Julie

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.
