|After yoga we fixed lunch then headed out with Siobhan and other visiting friends, Terry and Trish, to check out the waterfall|
at Billy Barquedier National Park.
|Preparing for the hike...|
|It looks like there are other places to explore here, but we will leave that to another day.|
|The trailhead is right off the Hummingbird Highway, so it's easy to find.|
|There was actually a composting toilet on the trail, which was unexpected.|
|Cara had never heard of "yemery" so she googled it, and it's a type of tree.|
|The trail was actually very nicely marked and well maintained, and it was only about a 15 |
minute walk to get to the waterfall.
|Then you walk up the creek to the waterfall.|
|Terry and Trish|
|Nope, this isn't the waterfall yet...|
|Woohoo - waterfall and swimming pool!|
|Siobhan was the first one in and the last one out.|
|The water is chilly, so it's best to just get all the way in like Trish here, instead of trying to work your way in like Terry.|
|Trish, Cara and Siobhan were the only ones to brave the cold, though it truly feels wonderful once you get all the way in. |
Anyway, the women had fun practicing synchronized swimming and generally messing around.
|Ahhhh, farewell Billy Barquedier Waterfall - until next time!|
|A fantastic time was had by all, and we took our time making it home, stopping at several|
places for drinks along the way.
|Terry drove, and his car has a sunroof, which was open. Cara was enamored with the clouds on the drive home, so she couldn't |
help but snap some pics.
|In sum, our first Waterfall Wednesday was a great success, and we will have to do more of these trips!|
