OK, I admit it; I went nuts on the photos today, but the sun was warm and the creek bubbled along joyously and it was hard not to love the moment.
The water is so fresh and clear, even after the recent rain.
We packed a picnic lunch and instead of packing drinks for the children I put in two empty cups so they could scoop up their own water straight from the creek. They loved it, and only two gumboots and one sleeve fell in while they played in the water.
This stretch of creek is just a 2 minute stroll from our house.
