The Invercargill Eye - - FRONT PAGE -

Sun’s out, means sneak­ers out.

In South­land, we have so many dif­fer­ent walk­ing tracks that are all beau­ti­ful and dif­fer­ent.

With the nice weather lately, I have been try­ing to make the most of the tracks.

I like the si­lence (apart from my oc­ca­sional moan of sore legs or short­ness of breath) and they make me feel ac­com­plished once I have flopped back into the car.

Dur­ing the week­end, the sun was out so I de­cided to head to one of my favourite tracks in Omaui. The de­cent up­hill trek is al­ways re­warded with gor­geous views of In­ver­cargill, River­ton, Bluff, and Ste­wart Is­land in the dis­tance.

I’m not the most fit per­son in the world, so reach­ing the top meant I was ready for my heart to slow down. But in­stead, there was a dead, half-fly-eaten pos­sum on the track which I al­most stepped on. I am a self-pro­claimed princess, so it def­i­nitely shocked any sense of peace and re­lief from my sys­tem.

But in all se­ri­ous­ness, I chal­lenge ev­ery­one to make the most of the good weather by get­ting ac­tive.
