I caught the bus from home to the stop right outside the gate. I guess I strolled around for about one and and half hours. It would have been nice to do with someone else to talk to about what I saw.
Paths, there are paths in every direction, up hill and down dale.
One of the three waterfalls I discovered.
A willow tree, on the left, and pampas grass flowers on the right. Both are are weed pests in
Victoria, for good reasons, but how nice they look.
Did I frame this well?
A glimpse of lawn. There is a lot of lawn. See the next post.
A remaining red canna lily, and one of the two bridges across the lake.
The boat house. There are two row boats inside the boat house, still there as they were when I last visited
Ripponlea, some twenty five years ago.
The noisy waterfall.
Is it a rotunda? Maybe. It is quite some building, with steep and narrow stairs, even though it is not so old.
The scenery from the tower rotunda was very nice.
Part 2 of the house from the outside and its history later.
