Sundays in my City #15 – 1000 Steps

30 Aug

It was Sunday and I had to get out of the house and go somewhere, do something.

Unknown Mami

The kids were interested in learning more about Kokoda and my adventures in Papua New Guinea so we headed out to the 1000 Steps in Ferntree Gully.  Boy-child had had a rough night and wasn’t really up to the full climb so we started off with a rambling walk first.

Trying to Explore

He stopped and rested played in the playground at the base of the mountain and we set off to climb the steps.  After telling girl-child that there weren’t really 1000 Steps, she ran back to the bottom of the stairs and started to count them.  She stopped every 100 steps for a photo.

Hundreds and Hundreds of Steps

She may have been distracted a few times and lost count, but she ended up counting 739 steps from top to bottom.  I really figured that she would be exhausted by the time we made it to the top but she insisted on walking further up the hill to the One Tree Hill picnic area.

Happy to be Outside

On the walk down the stairs she stopped and read (or listened to us read) about the different locations along the Kokoda Track.

Despite boy-child’s lack of energy and desire to explore, it was a great day out and we all want to go back and explore some more, perhaps when the weather improves.

Head over to Unknown Mami to see who else is playing along with Sundays in my City.

    I love the Hundreds of Steps collage. I am impressed that she kept counting.
