Yesterday, Bradley, Aaron, and I went on a day trip to Mount Tamborine. It turned out to be quite a hot and humid day up on the mountain. We decided to go on a trail walk to Cameron Falls — a 2.6km return walk. The trail had lots of rocky steps and was quite narrow in areas with a steep drop on one side. That made Bradley quite nervous but he held onto my arm the whole way so I could guide him through it.
A concrete bridge across a small creek bed
Some huge and interesting trees along the way
Root mass of a palm tree
It was quite dense in areas and we even came across the odd flower or two
and the occasional scrub turkey
We made it to the lookout but we were a little disappointed to find that Cameron Falls was little more than a trickle off the cliff face at this time of year.
Beautiful views though. We weren't looking forward to the trek back as it was mostly uphill, rough in areas, and it was still very humid.
We headed home mid-afternoon, worn out from our trail walk but filled with a sense of satisfaction.
Below are a couple of sketches from my week.
First up — Lemons!
Bradley had an Occupational Therapy appointment on Wednesday and his therapist mentioned that an Irish entertainer would be performing in the Mater Mothers hospital foyer at lunch-time so we stayed around to see it.
I did the following pen sketch from a photo I took of Shane playing the guitar and singing.
And finished him up with some watercolour and coloured pencils.
I'm linking up with Sunday Sketches this week hosted by the amazing author/illustrator, Alexandra Macvean. To see the work of other participants, click HERE.
We are getting some rain at the moment and I sure hope it cools things down. It's very muggy right now. I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend.
