Get your shoes on bitches we are going for a walk!!

WALK??

Yes indeedy good people
TOF and I went for a dam fine walk!!

So here we go!



This is it.
A short drive west side out from
Hamilton
into the countryside.


You are instantly greeted in
the car park by an ever growing family of
very gorgeous
Chickens!
And some big
bad-ass
ROOSTERS!
 




Armed with a dog each
we set off on the winding pathway
leading us into
THE BUSH!!

 My my this was totally
beautiful.






Why you may well ask
is TOF
doing that???
His Michael Jackson Cock Grab!!!*

He was saying whats that tree
whats that tree?
I'm like
I don't know.
As he is doing
that* ,
he goes
Chinese Fir tree.
Apparently that is funny
but I some how missed the joke!!



I love that there are park benches
along the way in case
you need to rest
and catch your breath,
maybe just soak up the beautiful sights on offer!
Even the dogs
got their 'PANT' on.

 This must have been the 
Magical Forest
as the light
was quite beautiful.
Kept waiting for the Fairies and the Elves, Pixies and others
to turn up.


According to TOF this sculpture represents a traditional Fertility something or another, because by then I was laughing at him. Farkwitt!! Being a knowledgeable man of the world and all, everything is a symbol or a sign of Fertility, bloody one track mind the dirty old bugger!!


The first bit of Autumnal colour amongst the still green foliage trees and plants.
We will have to go back
when the trees and shrubs are
totally rocking
the Autumn colours!!!

Holy crap cakes two walks?
Unheard of.
 This could well be the very early signs
of Hamilton's
very own Stone Henge!!!
Obviously
ours is a 
Small Rock Henge
at this stage of it's creation.
But just think,
it was a Pebble Henge
ONCE.


Isn't our lovely
Mother Nature a real treat.
She just keeps on
delivering
beautiful images
for us to take photos of every
DAY!!


Back in the car park
ready to make like a tree and
leave!

We were escorted out of the car park with a monstrosity of a Rooster who walked tall beside the car as we drove slowly out onto the road to home.  Gorgeous big boy he was too!!  I had a photo of him but I seem to have deleted the bugger, and it was a goody.  I think it is only right that I now temporarily borrow a word from a certain  bloggette from the South Island,

'Arsebiscuit'!!

Hope you all enjoyed our little walk!!

Now
something so very sad to share.

A MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT!!


Seriously??!!

So I wore them today to work, got changed when I got home into reasonably sensible attire for walking in and when I say suitable I was very much going for comfy. No I do not own walking gear, no lycra or spandex exercise gear lives in any of my draws. I digress! I decided that I would still go for our walk wearing these!  Glad I only paid $3 instead of the filthy outrageous recommended retail price, they are/were Molly N.

Oh Well!
Guess this means I have to
replace them!!


At least they looked
fricken great
with today's little ensemble
of Black and White
Spots and Stripes.

No, no, not the polka dots!

Ah, well, they lasted the day and what a glorious day it was. When others dream of exploring Mars, I shall fantasize walking the park paths of New Zealand.

And I do enjoy the company of chickens: we had a wild bunch when I was a kid!

Bugger! your shoes look like mine now (which means I would probably glue them as I have no shame, I wouldn't use sellotape, that's just daft haha!) Love your outfit, those are awesome leggings/dress/petticoat combo - Dave often has to explain his jokes to me too! ps love the pics x x x

All that walking is enough to ruin any girl's shoes! What a fab place. Our town's got an arboretum, too.Do you call yours The Arbo like we do? xxx

There is a product called, "Shoe glue" for just such rubberised soles. It looks fixable, if you didn't bin them already. Plain old super-strength gel glue will work as well. If you buy enough second-foot shoes, it is best to keep a supply on hand. I speak from the experience of many a shoe falling apart as I walk.

So the kid was reading over my shoulder and noted that you must be in NZ. I asked how he could tell, and it was the swan that tipped him off. You have different swan species, I guess.

That cartoon is getting printed and tacked up on my fridge. Love it!

What a great place to go for a walk, it's beautiful. Cocks and crotch grabs too, lucky old you! (Cockerels, I meant, Sue!)
Arsebiscuit indeed about the shoes... xxx
