Tourists in Our Own Town

1 Comment

This morning we went to Baroon Pocket Dam.  The southern, or Maleny side where we went is only about 5 minutes drive from the centre of Maleny.  We took a short walk on a circuit overlooking the lake.  It is easy to overlook some of the spectacular natural scenery on our doorstep so I took these photos to remind us of how lucky we are.  We travel halfway around the world to see views like these and here it all is in our own backyard.  We took the camera, stainless steel water bottles, home-made muffins and apples in a backpack for our excursion.  So for next to no cost or environmental impact we had a lovely morning walk.

Here is one of the lake…..
