Just "Ducky"...!

Out walking Jessie on a very pleasant Spring Sunday afternoon along Adelaide's Linear Park* we encountered the following :

Not so fast, junior!

Shouldn't have had so much to drink last night - my eyes are bloodshot!

Just a very small section of the river and its surroundings

A Pacific Black Duck

Amid the shrubbery, these bottlebrush splashed the surroundings with their vivid orange-red colour.

A section of the Linear Park walkway

... and another on the other side of the river.

* For those who may be interested, Linear Park is a paved walkway/cycle track running alongside the River Torrens from the beachside suburb of Henley Beach to the foothills region of Athelstone in the Mt Lofty Ranges - a distance of some 35 km.  It was completed in 1997 and is in regular use by walkers, joggers and cyclists throughout the week and at weekends. A delightful opportunity to change the pace of life and appreciate our glorious surroundings.

I get dizzy trying to keep up with you two!

A great series, Valerie. Nice to come with you (virtually) on your walk.
