I walked into Bushranger’s Bay this afternoon, a short track through a park near Flinders that takes you through Greens Bush to the sea. It’s a favourite walk of mine, short, but always interesting with kangaroos, banksia and slowly as you get closer, the sound of the sea. It follows the ridge above Main Creek and takes you to a wild looking little bay near Cape Schanck. No poem yet, but walks like these, little immersions into nature, like diving into the sea, generally end up returning somewhere later on. Coming to the end of a busy teaching term, it was just what I needed.
