Photos from a River Bank & a Flood Plain

Some photos from my daily walk along the bank of Hunter River and the flood plain. All photos taken with my phone camera.

The other day while I was on my 7 – 8 km walk a neighbour stopped me and asked how far did I walk and why. I told her the distance and then explained that my doctor diagnosed me with Type 2 Diabetes in September 2021. It was a wake up call even though I thought I was OK with my diet since I didn’t eat takeaway food like MacDonalds or KFC or even pizza. In fact, I thought eating lots of fruit was great and my instant noodle soup that I supplemented with broccoli, garlic, mushrooms, olive oil and other goodies was good too. I was wrong. Too much fruit has too much sugar as in sucrose. Noodles are carbohydrates. I found that my enemy in good health wasn’t fats but carbohydrates.

The doctor explained that since diabetes ran in the family I had a genetic disposition for it. Anyway, I changed my diet and I began my daily walks. The good news is that I have reversed my diabetes and I have normal blood sugar levels. If you want to know how I reversed my diabetes just click here.

As I walk I take photos and these I share on my Twitter account. Many of those pictures are here on this page. I update it regularly, adding new photos I have taken on my walks.

I have to say that one of my great joys, apart from the views & taking photos, of my daily walk, is listening to favourite music thru earbuds. The music becomes a soundtrack of the living film of walking. Through the music, scenes of past friendships and events overlay the current moment. Other times the present overlays my Life.

Enjoy the scenes I visit and see on my daily walk.
