A Walk in the Woods (Lobethal)

It was a perfect Autumn day, so Chez Reynella and friends decided to go for a bushwalk. We went to a little reserve up near Lobethal, the Onkaparinka St. John's Bushland Reserve.

Although small, it has a variety ecological settings, wandering past lakes and some historic old mine sites. There wasn't much animal life to be seen, although the bush resounded with bird song, but there were lots of interesting planst though.

Stately gums with near white bark, grass trees, these lichen covered she-oaks, a host of pink flowers and some startlingly coloured fungi all enlivened the walk.

Sadly, the boys ignored most of it, when they weren't discussing "Lord of the Rings" strategy games, they were doing mock sword fights. Still at least they were out in the fresh air.
