National Park Treasures


Last weekend we took a late afternoon walk in the National Park around the bays to Dolphin Point. I am happy to report that the walk was festooned with treasures.

A crevice of tiny moss plant

My favourite lichen dotted rocky outcrop

the beauty of a dessicated bracken

The carbuncular trunk of the Pandanus Tree

Spider egg sac

A young Pandanus plant

The homeward rise

The last surfers of the day

The sun is dropping low

and the Chinese lanterns have closed up for the night.

  9. Moonshin,
    I am happy that you are enjoying nature more...does the pandanus smell? the fallen fruit can be sweet smelling...

    The camera is a tiny point and shoot so it gets stuffed into my pocket...

  10. Dan,
    These treasures are for sharing...
    thanks for visiting...

  11. it doesn't? well...i guess the one in my backyard is of different family. we call it pandan too...so, i thought it was the same since it looks kind of similar.

    =)oh...you stuffed your camera in your pocket... cool...

  12. The homeward rise photo is simply gorgeous! My favorite...
