A nice Monday

I only had 3 loads of wash this morning so got that done just after lunch.
Just as I was getting ready to do some ironing Cliff came in and had enough from working in the garage so after having one of our wonderfully sweet oranges we decided to take a walk.
Cliff wanted to find out where the machinery noise was coming from so we drove up the road a bit and then started to walk to the old Bamberton Haul road not far from our house. Up to the late 70s the road was used to haul rocks from the Quarry to the cement plant by the Ocean. It was pretty noisy in those days but now it is a great place to walk. It did not take very long for the vegetation to try and take over the road.

When we first left the car we were greeted by a beautiful big dog. He did not like us walking and sure let us know. A little while later we saw what he was protecting:

Along the road was a big ant hill with very busy ants. I let them carry on with their jobs but I took a quick picture.

If the weather is as nice tomorrow as it was today we might go back and get some of the fresh nettles that are right now at the right size for a delicious spring meal.

As you see, it was a great day.
Good night everybody ☺
