My neighbourhood friends had planned to go camping a few times this summer but unfortunately we’ve had to call it off thanks to the heavy downpours that seemed to accompany every weekend we picked. While we like to blame our friend Helen for this rather freakish occurrence this summer, I think it is actually linked to something called the La Niña phenomenon. I hear the La Nina patters have decayed across the Pacific because we finally had a sunny weekend which enabled us to finally make it to Crosslands.The wet weather that had preceded us had left pools everywhere..and I had lots of fun taking photos of the reflections they made..
There was a bit of drizzle at the end of our hike but we were starving hungry and found a picnic table with a bit of shelter to share the picnic lunch we had brought along. It wasn’t the camping trip we had planned but it was a good start :). It had been such a fun day that we decided to travel a bit further after saying goodbye to Helen and James and spent the afternoon at Kuringai National Park - Westhead. It must be one of the best views in Sydney…So why did they call it the Pitts..I mean Pittwater :)
I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do. -Willa Cather, O Pioneers
