At the last minute I swapped my walking shoes for my gum boots, remembering it had rained last night. I sleep pretty soundly but the thunder had woken me and the lightning lit up my bedroom like it was the middle of a bright day. I listened to the rain drumming on the roof for a while but nothing keeps me awake for long.
The track was a bit muddy but that's nothing new really. But when I came over the top of the hill looking to the back of the farm I had to declare, "It DID rain last night!" That water isn't the overflow from the creek it's just water that hasn't had time to drain away yet.
And, oh darn, look at that water across the track. I'm glad I put those gum boots on. The new ones, here comes the waterproof test. I'm pleased to say they passed the test.
Our pretty little stream was anything but.
That water is quite high actually.
It was a beaut day, about 22C. Everywhere there are signs of spring. I was quite warm by the time I got back home, spent the rest of the day in short sleeves - roll on summer!
