I’m feeling better but still a little tender in the stomach where the incisions are healing. Today I’m not resting because I have to be on campus for our internship introduction but I’m thankful that I can sit in a classroom and not have to be too active. More details on the internship in Friday’s blogpost so stay tuned. Please pray for me this week as I’m pretty busy but still in recovery mode. In the meantime, here are some pictures from last Thursday’s pre-surgery outing.For various reasons we haven’t been hiking for awhile so hiking and another national park seemed like the right pre-surgery activity. We drove about an hour to visit Serpentine National Park and parked using our WA Park Pass. We were greeted almost right away by two kangaroos enjoying their breakfast in the picnic area. And we were happy to see monarch butterflies as well. The three hour hike only took us an hour and a half but it was still enjoyable and the views were lovely.
When we went back to check out the swimming hole again, we found even more kangaroos that hopped away before we could snap a picture. I’m sure the novelty will wear off eventually but it’s still fun to see kangaroos just hanging around. This park was a sweet little gem and we are looking forward to heading back for the longer hike as well as swimming when the weather warms up again.
