On Saturday and Sunday I had planned a hike and then a paddle but these were both thwarted by intense winds which reduced temperatures so much that I really didn't want to spend too much time outdoors. So instead I worked all day Saturday and Sunday morning, stopping at lunchtime on Sunday, and grabbed my camera to go the short drive to our state arboretum at Blandy.
I arrived at Blandy and wasn't surprised to see only a couple of other cars there.
As I drove around the arboretum I spotted a few others doing the exact same as me, driving slowly in their warm cocoons, then jumping out with cameras when something caught their eye.
