Evening Scramble Up Elsie’s Peak

We didn’t go the whole way. I just didn’t fancy coming down Elsie’s Peak after dark! But yesterday evening, Mike suggested we go for a mountain walk. I love walking on the mountains around here, but I can’t go alone and most of Mike’s exercise gets taken up on the golf course. It was my turn. We left late – just before 6-30pm and this was the spectacular view of the sea at 6-34pm….there was still a bit of sunshine.

The landscape is still very barren after the fires in January, but there are some signs of life…

We stopped about half way up and enjoyed just watching the sun set, admiring Elsie’s rocks…

On the way down, it dusk had settled in….this was 7-05pm..

Some of the once thick bush on Elsie’s Peak are now straggly sticks, burnt and peeling…

It will be interesting to see if they ever come back to life.

I read such lovely words this morning from Psalm 57:5 & 7

“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast.”

Be steadfast. Don’t quit. I was reminded of this little poem today…

Don't quit

Let that be an encouragement to someone.

Keep the smile going.

God bless you!

In His Grip,
