Autumn is well and truly here and the cooler morning and afternoons are a perfect snake free time to get out on the trails. I have decided to challenge my self to a winter of trig bagging around Canberra. There are plenty to keep me busy and its a great way to get back on the road to the fitness levels I enjoyed in 2018.
Today I ticked off my first McQuoids Hill, just up the bicentennial Trail from home. Not many birds but some great views across the Tuggeranong Valley.
I know there are brown snakes around the property where we live. We installed a perimeter of snakes deterrents before the start of summer. They are beeping and pulsing away all round the house and we haven’t seen a snake for months. Now I am not sure how to tackle this one.
When I was spreading a pile of wood chips this morning, I uncovered a what looks like a nest inside the pile. I think that it is a brown snake’s nest. Now not sure what my next step should be. Is mumma snake inside or just the eggs?
My visit to Ubud got off to a very shakey start last Sunday. Life has now settled into a routine of exotic breakfasts, yoga, swimming, hiking, meditation and dinners of fresh locally grown delicacies.
Apart from sorting out our go-to place when the windows and door start rattling (under out sturdy dining table) and sleeping with a grab bag close to the bed, we have adjusted to the occasional earth tremor disturbing our sleep.
A daily yoga practice has improved my posture and gait. I now feel like I am suspended by a piece of string when I walk. The rains have come early and the nights are cool, each evening I visit the meditation centre next door for an hour. Ubud is truly a treat for all the senses, and I have another two weeks to enjoy.
