Sunshine Rocks – #Inktober 2018 Day 24

Remembering it as an easy trail, except for the last part, we climbed Castle Rock in the Porongurups on the 24th.ย  Either our memories or our bodies must have played a trick on us as it was a long slog up to the first lookout! The vertical climb from there up to the skywalk was well worth the struggle as the views in the sunshine were stunning.

Sunny Wildflowers – #Inktober 2018 Day 23 PM

Unwisely, after walking the Nancy Peak Trail in the morning, we decided to do a short wildflower trail in the afternoon.ย  Somehow we lost the trail markers and had another long trek! A plus was finding a patch of wild, sunny yellow cowslip orchids.

Imagine The Sunshine – #Inktober 2018 Day 23 AM

On the 23rd we walked the Nancy Peak Circuit Trail in the Porongurups.ย  The walk crosses the main peak of the ranges and gives panoramic views of the granite rocks, lush forests and the distant Stirling Ranges.

It was a cool day with grey skies so I had to imagine the sunshine in the sketch for the day.

The Wheels On The Van – #Inktober 2018 Day 22

The wheels on the van went round and round on the 22nd – all the way to the Porongurups, Western Australia.

We were in a sunny mood but when we arrived the skies were grey and the wind was icy cold!ย  We didn’t care – we met up with good friends and had a fun evening.

Joy brings sunshine and sunshine brings joy!

We’re back from our spring trip and I’m catching up with posting my Inktober sketches.

The 21st was spent getting ready for the travels that we anticipated with joy.

You Are My Sunshine – #Inktober 2018 Day 20

To Lela – our 9 YEAR old puppy:

You are my sunshine, my little sunshine.
You make me happy, when skies are grey!
