Mt O'Brien

Yesterday, an elderly friend who is 87 wanted company to check out facilities at Mt O'Brien Lookout.  He takes it upon himself to go up weekly to check that there has been no litter left and that the BBQ is clean. His wife doesn't like him going alone so we accompanied him.

Luckily I had my camera as this beautiful native creeper was in flower, I can't remember the name .
 

Looking over to Lake Hinds in the distance
 
 
The paddocks are all a lovely shade of golden brown now that the heat of summer is here
 
To the naked eye I couldn't see these ruins of an old house until my learned friend pointed them out
 
 



Melaleuca along the road to the lookout are in flower now
