Lilydale Lake: a magical place ...
... on a foggy winter morning that is. The last two weekends I have gone for a walk around Lilydale Lake; the first with my Saturday morning walking group and the other with my dear friend, Marie in lieu of our usual walk around Princes Park in Carlton.
Altogether, a wonderful place to take a walk - so very beautiful and lots to see.
It was the first time I had ever been there (or even knew that there was a lake there) and it was absolutely stunning, especially in the early morning mist. It was so magical that I half expected the Lady of the Lake to thrust Excalibur out of the water!
There was a wealth of bird life and a myriad of great photo opportunities but I will let the photos speak for themselves......

|There is even a beach for toddlers to have a splash in the water on the long, hot days of summer.|
