Nothing spectacular about the run today, a nice day if the westerly wind hadn't been blowing. A run from work over to Point Hut, along the river track past Pine Is to a loop track at the top car park, back to the beach to stand in the river for 10 minutes, then back to work.
Totally taken by surprise when I almost stepped on a red belly black snake (not the cafe) at the main BBQ area at Pine Is. Just catching the last of any warmth in the sun before hibernation for winter. Luckily I saw the jet black outline in time to avoid having to jump. A fine specimen, about 1 metre long, so I left well enough alone.
I did my recovery 10 minutes in the water then returned for another look, but RBB had gone. Good.
