Sunday bridge: Roy clements park




http://bayphoto.blogspot.com/

This bridge/walkway crosses a small creek, but spans over a long stretch of swampy patch. Without this, it would be difficult to appreciate the fauna and native bush and ducks swimming in the creek. This place is named after Roy Clements, a teacher of Mt Albert grammar who spearheaded the tree planting and cleaning up of this area. Now, the students get a short cut to the school.

That's an interesting bridge. It's Spring and starting to warm up. We've been having many good days above 20 degrees celsius lately. No need for a jacket or jumper, during the day.

This looks like a delightful place for a saunter, Anne! But with all that water, how are the bugs?

I love wooden walkways in wetlands. They allow us to observe with out ruining the land and tiny critters. MB
