Walkers: Dorothy, Claudia & Helen
Tokai has an arboterum, a tea garden, a little bit of indigenous forest, and a large pine tree plantation.
From the main entrance we took a path to the left.
There were route markers but we didn't follow them.
Instead we strolled through the pines and the gums.
It seemed as if we could see every shade of green here.
We walked up alongside the Prinskasteel stream for a bit. Although it was flowing, it smelt very stagnant and there was a lot of scum. In fact it was so unpleasantly smelly that we made our way back to the arboretum.
Here we meandered amongst the trees, with no particular destination in mind. The stillness and all that green is very peaceful - good for the soul.
And I just love the fresh green colour of new leaves!
