I obviously wasn’t concentrating on what I was doing.
I was out for my usual early morning walk and I had a bit of a mishap. I tripped on a tree root and fell forward. I was on a downhill slope. I put my hands out to save myself and in doing so I have damaged my humerus, which I might say is not at all funny.
I have broken a bit off the top end of the bone but it is still quite close to the bone so doesn’t require surgery just a long period of waiting for it to heal.
I was lucky I wasn’t too far from home as I was walking in the Metung Bushland Reserve and once I had calmed myself down I was able to walk back home.
I will now certainly be restricted in what I can do for a few weeks as it was my right arm that was damaged.
Enforced relaxation. Lots of reading and when I start my walks again I will stick to footpaths for a little while.
It is a couple of weeks since I was last on my bike so it was good to get our for a rideon the weekend. I went for a ride with two other women and we rode what we call the Metung loop. I then doubled back a bit on my own and did a reconnoiter of an area known as Tambo Bluff. We thought that we might ride around there on one of our future rides.
I met the other two riders at Chinaman’s Creek.

History of the area
We enjoyed the ride together and I also enjoyed exploring Tambo Bluff. I came across a walking track which had information panels regarding the flora and fauna.
There was also a box where you could access a pamphlet about the tracks.
I rode down to the foreshore and took a short video before riding home. It was a beautiful morning.
