Thursday Special: Pick a Word January 2023
Time to have a go at my favourite photo challenge. This months words are a mix of easy (maybe) and a bit more to think about. Well the words gave me a lot of ideas. I put a photo in and then want to change my mind. To over come this, I have double dipped with a couple of photos that the words compelled me to post.
To compensate for taking a bit of your time, here are some of my favourite words as you scroll on by
Paula’s first set of words for this year are
I hope you had fun and found that that my photos matched Paula’s words. Want to know more about any of the photos, drop me a comment.
Did you see the duck on the fountain?

Thought I would just add a song from one of my favourite Aussie groups. I hope you like them
Familiar Sayings Challenge 11 Jan: Silence is Golden
The last few days I have been totally immersed in my Regional Landcare Network Gathering. There were people from all over the north coast from Port Macquarie in the south to Tweed Heads in the north and out to the tablelands in the west.
It was held at Aanuka Resort in Coffs Harbour which is central to the region. The resort has great rooms for conferences, capacity to have around fifty people and a restaurant. There were presentations by the local Landcare Co-ordinators plus other invited guests plus a lot of brainstorming sessions to set our goals for the next four years which is our funding cycle.
This is a short post as I didn’t have time to wander about with my camera, so lets walk on by
One of the typical walks to and from the rooms, the gathering and restaurant
The view from the restaurant
This walk is going back a few years when on a holiday in Tasmania. What prompted me to do this post was a few days ago when I used my shadow photo.
I guess we better get down on the beach
The beach was quite a long one but the walk wasn’t all that far
The setting Sun on a warm October day
Every one liked my long legs so I thought I would have a friend join me and you can now have double the enjoyment. The setting sun is the best time to get that long leg feeling
Among the dunes, the Pig Face was flowering
The colourful rocks of the Bay of Fires. The red is a lichen that grows on the granite rocks
There was a Pacific Gull hanging out on the rocks
*”The Bay of Fires did not actually earn its name because of its appearance. It was named “Bay of Fires” in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux, who looked out and saw countless fires along the Tasmanian coast”
Sunday Stills: #Paths and #Trails Take You to Happy Places
Today wasn’t a good walking day. I didn’t want to drive to walk somewhere and the gravel trucks have been trundling up and down all day. You wouldn’t believe the dust they throw up.
Therefore I want to take you on a bit of a walk along the track to the beach at Evans Head. Here’s your song so let’s go
Out of the car park down we go. On the top of the hind dune She-oaks and Banksias are growing
Sometimes the track goes up and over the next dune and a small stream
Once the vegetation starts to change you know you are getting close to the beach. The Pandanus are the dominant vegetation on thee front dunes and beach and they even grow on rocks.
And around the last bend, through some Pandanus and onto the sand
Sometimes the welcoming committee is large
and at other times, just a couple to greet you but someone will always be on the sand to greet you
PS I know lots of you have seen this little bloke. This is where he was put together with a Pandanus nut and some red kelp. I wonder how long he was sitting in the Paperbark tree before some one noticed. I hope he was treated kindly.
Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Low
….the crabs come out to forage and rebuild their nests. The rebuilding creates fabulous patterns on the sand.
Sand Crabs start preparing do dig in the sand
Try to arrange the sand balls as they like
Just dig and throw
The sand balls build up as they dig
and suddenly intricate patterns are created
Only to be washed away when the tide comes in
Soldier crabs march across the sand looking for a snack or two
