Two Routes

Does anyone else find driving on freeways a soulless experience?

The freeway. Sand and scrub.

Today I had the choice of two routes - the quicker but lifeless freeway, or the slightly longer but tree-filled way.

Time was on my side so of course I took the latter route. True it's still suburban, with multiple traffic lights and many other motorists around, but the roads are lined with native trees and there is even a small pine plantation that we pass.

Almost as payment for going that way, we spied a little gate leading into the pine plantation that just beckoned to us.

I forsee we'll be off exploring the pines in the not too distant future.

(Charlie is a little ill at the moment so didn't want to take him out in the icy wind that's blowing today).
