As I’ve said many times we are in self isolation for the duration of Covid-19, on doctors advice, due to a medical issue. Even with regional Victoria reducing restrictions recently, and starting to open up, we are only venturing out occasionally. Mostly it’s just for a trip to the supermarket. We have been walking each day in the Bendigo National Park which is just outside our front gate. We feel this is ok, as we never see anyone on the trails. A few days ago, we decided to do something different and go on a bushwalk which is about 15k from our house. It was a walk that we hadn’t done before, but had been promising ourselves. Until now, it hadn’t happened, so today was the day.
This walk started at the Barker’s Creek reservoir and went around a few roads close to and through the area of Harcourt. Harcourt is considered to be the apple growing area of Victoria, with pink lady apples being a specialty. There is a park and two lovely cafes in Harcourt and that’s about it really.
Of course, Oscar came along for the fun. There would never be any thought of going for a walking adventure without my walking buddy. To add to the adventure we decided to take a picnic lunch. I made mini pizzas -= ‘healthy style’. We heated them up in our 4WD oven and boiled the billy for a cup of tea. All I can say, is that this simple meal tasted like a banquet after working up an apetite on our walk. Why is it that food always tastes betters outdoors?
