Nourishment For The Soul

A trip to the mountains was needed .......

A small dam. Can you see the steps going down into the water in the lower right hand corner - makes a swimming hole.

Dark and cool


If I was a little boy I'd walk across that fallen tree

Oh what the heck....

Some wild life....

A small eel in the swimming hole

A goanna half way up a tree
Peaceful, cool, magical, and green, all that was needed to nourish our souls!!


  1. how lovely, looks cooling and relaxing.

  2. Is this in the Wattagan National Park?! We recently camped here too! Beautiful spot... loved that mossy wall!

  3. It looks beautiful Kate. I wish I was there!

  4. Gee you just made me realise it's been about four years since I visited a rainforest! Must get out more! Your photos are lovely.

  5. there is nothing quite like getting out into nature to re-charge your soul. Lovely photos, thanks for sharing

  6. Now that is really weird. I have a vivid childhood memory of walking across that dam when I was on a day trip with a school friend (without my parents). I had no idea where it was. Is that within the Hunter Region? I grew up in Morisset, so wouldn't make sense if it wasn't.

  7. Hope all is well with you and yours. I'm thinking I might head out to some beautiful spot like that to recharge my slightly tense self!!! I love rainforest's too - there is something so still and primeval when you are deep with in the moist green forest. And healing!
