A registration box is located near the start of the walk and everyone entering the track is required to write their details into a book, and then to add a further entry to show their return. A safety precaution.
We headed up a slight incline into a quiet very wet forest (it was not raining but water was running down tree trunks) along a soft naturally mulched track. Luscious.
We saw Myrtles, Laurels and Sassafras trees amongst many others.
All manner of fungi and lichens grew in abundance.
This dripping world was magical.
All the while I followed Jeanette’s boots that croaked like a frog. “I don’t know what it is,” she said “but they have made that sound since my first day of wearing them”. We laughed.
