Gold Coast is built on a swamp and when it was developed the swamp was drained and a network of canals and lakes were formed. The waterways wind and meander over 400 kilometres around the suburbs and at the end of my street there is one of the lakes.
Just a 5 minute walk away, but it is not often I go there.
But a couple of evenings ago we decided to walk down to the lake and watch the sunset.A sense of wonder and calmness can be felt watching the beauty of nature.
A lake is the landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature.
It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures
the depth of his own nature.
– Henry David Thoreau
There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains
of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and
spring after the winter.
– Rachel Carson
The Sense of WonderThe birds have all gone to roost and as the sun dips below the horizon you can see the bats coming out for their nightly forage
Keep looking up! I learn from the past, dream about the future and look up.
There’s nothing like a beautiful sunset to end a healthy day. Rachel Boston
I wonder why I don’t come here more often it is so peaceful.
I hope you all enjoy a peaceful weekend.
