Day 4: Bush Walking In The Rain

It has been raining up here in the mountains for a few days now and I got sick of being stuck in the house. So I said to the boys, "get your gumboots and raincoats on, there some puddles that need jumping in".

Off we went on a bush walk or should I say puddle walk as most of the track seemed to be a never ending stream of puddles.

I was amazed at how many other raincoated bush walkers we walked past on our journey, saying how nice it is to go for a walk in the drizzle. The colours of the bush look so beautiful with the rain on it. I didn't get many photos as Lou just wanted to keep walking. I had to keep my eye on him - the stream next to the track was flowing very fast today.

The rain held off for most of the walk but it seemed to drizzle on and off. We tried not to stop for too long in one spot. In the back of my mind, I was wondering if we were going to pick up any hitch-hikers of the blood sucking kind....;)
Yes, we were leach free when we got home.....

We stood still and listened to the frogs croaking but not long enough for leaches to climb on us.

We couldn't stand being cooped up any longer either & went geocaching in the rain today(which involved a bit of bush walking). No leeches for us either, even though we were expecting them. My tip of the day - next time you are at a shop with small packs of salt, pick up a few & keep them in your pocket or first aid kit, ready for leech attacks. Keep an eye out for ticks as well, we've had a few of them lately.
