My last long run to Jells Park certainly was the most memorable. Max planned to pick me up at a pre-determined location, but because of the record breaking rainfall from the night before, the rivers, streams, and surrounding lowlands were flooded with water. The Eastlink trail was under a meter of water in many places, and I had to alter and ultimately back-track my route. Fortunately I had a cell phone to call Max regarding the change of plans. Though it wasn't raining when I started on the run, the skies opened, and I was drenched in a few minutes. Max grabbed the camera, thinking he was taking a picture of a two-legged drowned rat.
We drove to Fairfield to see the water of the normally lazy, benign, Yarra River well over the banks.
There are many varieties of plants in the conservatory, and caretakers change them regularly, depending on the season.
