Before my posts switch to more tropical vistas, I have a few autumnal moments still to share - while I can still feel the kiss of a crisp morning on my cheek. Autumn isn't complete without a visit to the Golden Valley Tree Park in Balingup; sixty hectares of gently landscaped parkland, grazing sheep and undulations. Coming from the flat coastal plain, any relief in the landscape is a glorious sight, and the inland chill factor fosters more vibrant and diverse autumn colours. We followed the "Pear Walk", given my penchant for these luscious autumn fruit and the fact that I had one ready to eat when we arrived. It survived the walk and the "exhilarating downhill" section, before I devoured its juiciness.
