Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week we're at a park in the north eastern suburbs. Not too far north, just a little way out of the city.
The occasion? My grand nephew's birthday party. E is three now!
We do NOT have photos of the kids, that would require me asking permission, which I forgot to do, but we do have views of the fabulous park we all went to.

the park has a string of ponds, direct centre of this picture is where this pond is fed by>>>
this brook, which has>>>
a teeny, tiny waterfall. The brook is fed by>>>
this larger pond,
with a rocks and grasses island,
with its own, larger waterfall.
there were plenty of seagulls and we were happily surprised when they didn't come squawking to share our barbecue. Hosted by the proud apron-wearing, tongs-wielding grandpa.
the park has a fenced off section containing skateboarding ramps for older kids.
I liked this tree base a lot,
the upper part of the tree is interesting to look at too.
This is just a small section of the park, which is huge and has a sporting oval, club rooms, a basketball hoop, fenced practise cricket pitches, several electric barbecues, each under its own shelter with seating available, and plenty of parking spaces.
