|Not quite Monet, but all I could do this morning.|
|Sitting in the ute waiting for the storm to pass through - yes I'm hardcore!|
|Reaching the dubious shelter of some trees I dug the DSLR out for a photo.|
|My route passed between those wetland and the lake....|
I walked 6.1 kilometres and climbed 30 metres on this easy stroll. This is one of those walks that would be suitable for wheelchairs or strollers I think. Being a Feral walk I was pretty relaxed when it came to researching this walk, I just grabbed my copy of Tyrone Thomas’ old book 40 Bushland & Park Walks In Metropolitan Melbourne and used the mud map from the book. whilst writing up this walk I’ve discovered that there is an abundance of information online, although I think the Yarra Ranges Council map is probably the only thing you need…even the relevant Melways page will get people through this one safely.

|The mornings rain had freshened the bush up a little after a few days of hot weather.|
|There's an old weir on Olinda Creek that you can see from Bellbird Drive.|

|Approaching Lakeview Drive, my walk was pretty well over.|
