Today was the last day of my staycation. So to make the most of it, Bailey and I went for a walk in our local wetlands. Bailey just loves swimming in the creeks down here.
Bailey is happiest most when she is able to run free and swim in creeks and ponds. But she's never very far from me. She joined our lives 12 months ago and is now 2 years. She's such a joy. She takes me places I wouldn't have taken myself.
But I just wont follow her into this creek. We cant even see the creek! But she dives into these reeds with such delight, and then I hear the splashing and the pouncing. Once she's in those reeds, she is chasing things... I imagine she's chasing dragon flies.
Here she's looking down at another creek.
The forest around the wetlands is just divine. Paperbark Eucalyptus.
The smell of these trees and the forest in the morning is so special.
Thank you Bailey, for taking me for walks and allowing me to rediscover the beautiful places within my 5km radius. I've been blessed to spend time with you and with the wilderness during my staycation.
