I’ve accepted the constraints of walking three standard poodles on my own whilst Suzanne walks the Larapinta Trail, and I just go with the flow. It is easier to go with the flow rather than be frustrated by the chaos.
Our early morning walks are along the old Victor Harbor railway line in Hayborough. Maleko and Kayla can play their crazy chasey games in and around the old Port Elliot-Victor Harbor railway line, Ari and I stroll along, my feet stay dry, and I can take a few photos.
It’s better than the beach, which is where everyone is walking in the early morning with their dogs. If I walk on the beach most of my time is spend minding the dogs and preventing them from getting up to mischief with other dogs and people.
The scenic railway line, which is only used for a tourist train these days, is a good compromise. We are there at dawn, the sun rises behind us, and a few photographic opportunities present themselves whilst I’m walking along.
Most of the houses along this section of Hayborough are holiday houses, and they stand empty most of the time. Will more people start to work and live here once the National Broadband network (it is fibre to the premises in Victor Harbor) is turned on?
