A nice sunny day, and the arboretum was especially colourful, and we were lucky to see a small ephemeral pond that was providing a refuge to at least seven Western Toads.
Update: Kiyoshi Takahashi shared his wonderful photos with us in this ALBUM
Before we visited the Riverview Creek area we went up to "Doctor's Row" where a very good view can be seen of Colony Farm and Mary Hill, see a Panoramio photo of the view
