Bushwalking with Bronagh

Near to where I live is a little gorgeous walking path that runs along a little creek which in turn sits in a little gorge. The gorge itself is only about 100 metres long but as you walk you dip into a crevice that all but hides the fact that you’re walking through the middle of a housing estate.

A couple weeks back, I decided that Bronagh and I would go for a bit of a wander as it had been a couple of years since I’d visited the gorge and I had no idea if it even survived all the construction of said housing estates or not. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was mostly untouched and the developers had seen fit to leave it as parkland.

So, Puppy and I (and her lovely long 10 meter walking rope) went walkies. I also took the camera…

This is Bronagh, my Aussie Bulldog. She’s a little bit different from the English Bulldogs most people are used to seeing. That’s her lead rope too. Strong enough that she can’t break it, long enough that she gets a run without me having to run with her. For those curious, no, I can’t have her off lead as a)she does not come when I call and b)SHE LOVES EVERYONE! Unfortunately due to her affectionate boisterousness with other dogs, adults and kids, I have to keep her restrained.

It’s called responsible dog ownership, y’all. There are a lot of idiots around here who have no clue what that means.

Heading down into the gorge walk…

A-typical gum tree that you find in Australia. This one is particularly purdy.

Oops! Someone got a little tangled up in her excitement.

Doggy photobomb.

Excessively picturesque. Sometimes I love where I live. Until I remember there’s Tiger Snakes…

The really pretty part of the gorge.

“Oooh! Grassy bits!”
Unfortunately Bronagh has this thing about puddles and water and the getting of the wetness. She HATES it… so I was surprised when she waded into some grass growing in the shallows of the creek. She hasn’t quite realised yet….

“Hmmm, I smell moisture…”
I was just standing there, waiting for the penny to drop (with a splish)…

“Oh… it’s wet! It’s WET! It’s wet! I don’t like wet!”
Have you ever seen a more worried look on a dog’s face in your entire life?

“Shit! Shit! SHIT!!”

The end of the gorge before the path leads back up into suburbia.

Dog butt photobomb. Again.

Do you have anywhere picturesque where you can almost forget about the rest of civilisation within walking distance of your house? Feel free to comment and hit me up with a link to some pictures. I would love to see.

  1. Beautiful Ren, lucky girl having that little slice of peace nearby. Do a blow up of the gums, you will give Ken Duncan a run for his money :o) I would buy one or two.
    Much love and hugs, Kerrie
