I usually run from work to home for lunch and run back again. But, petrol was as cheap as it has been for a long while so I took the car back to work to fill up tonight.
That changed running plans for the day, so I started out from work casually as usual. No point pushing, better to enjoy a near perfect day to be outdoors. From work down to Pine Is, along the river track to Point Hut, then over to the Gordon pond, on to Lanyon shops, then finding a path up to the Tuggeranong Hill proved a bit of a challenge. So was the up hill to get there.
Eventually, I found a bush track behind some houses, crossed rugged country to find the sub station behind Theodore. Easy and mostly down hill from here to Calwell oval, past the shops and home for lunch.
Wildlife everywhere, first a beautiful echidna on the track near the river, obviously found some ants. Then a kookaburra on a power line near Point Hut, searching with good eyes for any movement on ground level. Then a large mob of kangaroos on Tuggeranong Hill, going up as easy as you like. Oh to be that good.
Beaut day, too good to be at work.
