Water views, birds and living rocks (or maybe not). A walking adventure around Lake Richmond.
Time to check out Lake Richmond! It's only up the road and it is a beautiful Sunday morning, so I have no excuses. I have been past Lake Richmond on previous walks and seen it from the bus plenty of times, but this is the first time for a full exploration. At first I wasn't sure where to start, but luckily for me on the north-west corner of the lake is a series of information boards that give the low-down on the path, points of interest, flora, fauna (snakes!) and thrombolites. What are thrombolites? Glad you asked, from the helpful information boards provided they are a microbial community that looks a lot like a rock, so called "living rocks". Well then, they sound interesting.
