It is here, although we are experiencing some very mild weather. I love Autumn and Spring the most out of the Seasons that we have. So much Autumnal colour is around us in abundance too.
Today TOF and I went for a walk along one of the many pathways that are next to our Might Waikato River which runs smack bang in the middle of Hamilton.
Part of TOFs road to recovery is walking daily. Now that he is able to walk more than a few power poles down the road I have started to join him. We walked around part of Lake Rotoroa in town the other day. I tell him to go as far as he is comfortable and then we rest and return to our starting point.
The River Cruiser boat went past and I love getting glimpses of my favourite old bridge, the Fairfield Bridge.
Even tho you are walking in the city it is so peaceful riverside. Lots of native trees and birds, ducks on the river, and the odd bike bell ringing to alert you to cyclists coming along the shared pathway. Someone had carved a face into the old tree trunk, some residents have stairs that lead up to their properties, and we just got to enjoy it all.
Fairfield Bridge through the trees.
Makes me happy.
