After dinner on the second day of the new year, my husband and I, with our son and family who were visiting from Queensland, went for a walk on the shore of Lake Macquarie. Being summer, it was still light when we arrived at Wangi Wangi village, almost two kilometres away.

images[2]The local park is a popular one, overlooking the lake on the southern side of the isthmus. It is named in honour of our late local celebrity, Sir William Dobell, a well-known and sometimes controversial artist. We had walked past Sir William’s house, now an art gallery, on the way there.

We all sat on the grassy slope to watch the sun make the last of its descent past the horizon. I took some photos, as it was a lovely scene.

Then we walked the almost two kilometres back home. It was a lovely end to a busy and very pleasant, family-oriented day.

  1. I really like the pictures with the dinghy!

    • Thanks. 🙂 I thought it looked like a great shot too, so I made the most of it.
      Hope you enjoy your future visits to my blog. 🙂

      • I’m sure i will! 🙂

  2. Sundown is a special time of day isn’t it and that part of the lake does spoil us with its kaleidoscope light show. A great way to end any day.

  3. Haven’t visited the park in a while. Missing the great view and the trees still looks fantastic! You got a lovely shot of the sundown, by the way! Thanks for sharing!
