Five-Hundred Word Challenge 440: A Nice Day

Today was a good day.

I got up early, but not too early. It was around my usual time.

It did not take long before I was ready and leaving the house to head to Waterfall for the first time in a while.

Once there, I met up with Fe for a day of bushwalking through the bush of the Royal National Park.

We made good time, saw some things.

Uloola Falls was dry which was kind of sad but it did mean that we got to stand where the water usually flowed, which was kind of interesting.

We got some nice, sweeping views and we got to see a large family of cockatoos at one point.

There was a lot of walking.

We did well for time.

We did a lot better for time than the last time I was there, so that’s something I’m pretty chuffed about, if I am to be honest.

There were, of course a lot of photos taken and soon they shall start going through the process of being processed.

Not right now as soon I will be going to sleep as I’m feeling tired.

The air felt clean, the sounds around us were nice and the conversation was enjoyable.

Oh, that’s right; we saw some black cockatoos early on in the walk.

There was plenty of rest stops so I’m kind of surprised as to how well we did for time.

We were out of the Royal National Park still early on in the afternoon.

We came out at Loftus, caught a train back to Waterfall and then drove back to Sydney where we had some burgers at a place that we hadne’t eaten at in a while, and those too were good.

I think I was mostly happy to have been in the Royal National Park once more as the last time I was there was almost a year ago and it most certainly is a place that I like to visit.

Since getting home I’ve listened to lectures and enjoyed the wonderful pains that are being supplied to me courtesy of my right knee.

I think I may have strained it a little, which may have to do with being unfit, or something.

Audley Weir was also nice. Then again, Audley Weir usually is nice so there’s no surprise there.

So anyway, my knee is in pain and I’m sitting here and I was listening to lectures whilst processing photos and now I’m wondering as to what I should do about the pain other than rest, rest and then rest some more.

There’s not many options at this point, so it’s something that I have to wait to pass, which will hopefully be soon.

Oh, the walking paths were also pretty nice. Still defined, still easy, still leading to interesting sights.

The moss, which was not there the last time I did this walk was pretty interesting. It was growing in places I would not expect.

The moss was also nice.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 08:11:21

I thought I’d be able to get more out of this, but I guess that’s what the photos are for.

Written in Redfern.
