Back to Glenorchy yesterday.
As the rest of the country seemed to suffer wind and rain, the Southern Lakes seemed to bask in a patch of bright sun and calm. We arrived before the clouds around the nearby peaks had dispersed.
The Glenorchy walkway, though short, is a thing of wonder. Wooden walkways and well formed paths allow walkers to walk dry-footed through the wetlands.The trees were in their spring glory and were full of happy birdsong. I surmise that there was plentiful insect life and thus food for the birds. This little fantail has an insect in his beak.
We walked for over an hour enjoying all there was to be seen and were delighted when the peaks came into clear view.
In the evening, with the water still calm, I went back to Lake Hayes and enjoyed the sight of a backlit duck and one of her ducklings.
Tomorrow we are homeward bound.
