For Bridie Beagle, a car ride is almost as good as a walk as one of her favourite things. She particularly likes car rides, so she was raring to go on the trip back to Sydney from Somersby.
She liked the smells of the bush.
And going around corners.
She wasn’t too happy when we closed her window on the freeway.
And so was ecstatic when we came back into Sydney.
Even the traffic and skyscrapers didn’t faze her, as long as her window was open.
Ah, to be a beagle…
I did see a bit of autumn colour on the Central Coast, courtesy of a short drive up to the hinterland village of Somersby. There were a few trees turning by the roadside that warranted a few shots.
It has been a strange autumn and even though it’s still warm enough to wear shorts and t-shirt during the middle of the day, I dearly want to be able to break out the winter coats soon. I’ll just have to look at more of these photos and dream on.
Somersby was also a prime spot for Gymea lilies. Unfortunately, it seemed to be the end of the flowering season, but I found one that still had its bloom. At four or so metres tall, they’re truly spectacular flowers.
BB and I took a drive through the Central Coast hinterlands the other week and I’d like to share a little of it with you. It might have still been relatively warm by the water, but in the hinterland around Somersby there was still some autumn colours left.
