Every time I drive past this tree, which is rarely, I always stop to make sure it is still growing well. It originally would have had fencing wire wrapped around it, using it as a fence stay. Over time the Spotted Gum tree just consumed the wire and grew like this.
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”
Today was another day spent doing the walk from the shed to the house. It was a productive day. I have cut all of the timber into the lengths I need to make the gates.
So today I was walking like a man
Here are the last two planks of timber to be cut and the workings. My Makita Drop-Saw has been used to build my house and many a project. It was a bit tired by the end of today but a clean up and service will see it ready for the next project.
Hopefully the next time you see these pieces of wood, they will look a lot different.
While going back and forth sometimes something pops up.
The Sun really lit up the cross on the St Andrews Cross Spiders web.
I knew someone was watching me. Possibly a Splendid Ochre Butterfly but I am not one hundred percent sure
Thankfully I did a major clean up and cover the unused timber as it rained in the evening. The garden needed a good watering.
