On Saturday 2nd February, members and friends participated in a visit to the Blue Lotus Water Gardens in Yarra Junction. Despite the warm 38°C day, 23 people arrived at the gardens and enjoyed strolling around the ponds and enclosed pools. Most participants were so occupied photographing in the vast grounds that they didn’t even stop for a coffee break!
We enjoyed chatting whilst enjoying our picnic lunch under the shaded eating area. The day also provided a fantastic opportunity to meet and chat with some of our new members.
From there some departed for home, and a smaller intrepid group headed off to the Redwood Forest in East Warburton. The light was very challenging but it was enjoyable all the same. Then a tired group of people straggled home to check their handy work.
