Walking on Wednesday - Episode Two

The second of my 'Walking on Wednesday' posts.

Come for a walk with me....

Where shall we go?

Let us see where the path will take us

Beautiful views of the sea.

Let me get a photo of these hydrangeas.


Some are flowering and some buds are still to come out

Where am I?

Do you know?

I'm at Ventnor Botanical Gardens!

Lots of places to explore

Steps that take you up and down to different levels of the gardens.

Circular gardens

Hey there!

Wells - shall I make a wish?

I wonder how deep it is.

I wonder how long ago it was in use.  Perhaps when the gardens were used as a hospital.

I sit for a while by the big pond

The pond has fish and turtles in it.  Or are they tortoise?

Now which path shall I take?

Down I wander through the dappled light

Beautifully bright yellow flowers.

Down another dappled path

Reminds me a bit of New Zealand!

Even more so!

Bright pink flowers

Lots of succulents to admire

I look at the 'aboriginal' paintings...or at least copies of some.

I wonder how like the real thing they actually are?

Time for a little rest.

I admire the view from the seat

So peaceful.

We leave a little painted Kiwi rock as a memento of our visit and hopes whoever finds it likes it.

Of course there always has to be a bit of climbing wherever I wander.

Goodbye gardens, time to walk home now.

Back along the well walked path

On my way home.

I hope you enjoyed my 'Walking on Wednesday' Episode Two.

Walking on Wednesday

As we still can't go on actual holidays and probably can't for the foreseeable future, I invite you to come on a walk with me.  

Through the wooded area we will go

Dappled with sunlight

Jungles of stinging nettles

So much taller than I am!

Investigating rock pools

I looked closely but couldn't see any small fish.

Of course climbing over the rocks is just as much fun too.

Looking for fossils

Fascinating wondering what creature they may have been.  I'm sure an expert would know.

More little rock pools

and interesting fossils.

This one looks a bit like the bones of a leg

Contemplating the ocean and the world as a whole.

Looking down big crevices in the ground

that go a long way down.

Heading back home

I hope you enjoying Walking on Wednesday with me.
