Bush Walk

Bush Walk
Originally uploaded by basykes
One of my very favorite things to do when I was in Australia in 2003 was to take the dogs (German Shorthair Pointers, Keno and Chippa) to the bush in the morning to go for their run (for Chippa) and walk (for Keno). Peggy and I would be out at 6 a.m., occasionally earlier, just when the sun was coming up. We drove to a park and then to the back of the park, which opened onto the bush land that was part of Pinaroo Cemetery. The place was filled with birds and rabbits and kangaroos. I only saw roos in the place where we walked twice, but we could look down onto the cemetery land and see them lounging on the graves, and sometimes we walked down to the graves area to let the dogs run (not on the graves, but on the grassy area along the sides).

No roos in this movie, but the thing I loved most about those times was watching Chippa running through, around, and over the bushes and there is a lot of that here.
