The scent that surrounds the house at the moment is lovely. There are only two trees that have a few flowers but they smell heavenly in the afternoon and early morning.

Walking Squares #19 – The beach and shadows

Becky’s #WalkingSquares

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”

OK Had time to take in each photo?

The question is – Which photo is the odd one out? A quiz with a twist 🙂

Walking Squares #18 – Timber and insects

Becky’s #WalkingSquares

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.

Walking Squares #17 – Decisions and a Shadow

Becky’s #WalkingSquares

Today was another doing day as well as a not much as the heat of the day sent me inside.

I didn’t take many photos. In the late afternoon I heard a Tawny Frogmouth in the bush near the house so I went to see if I could find it. The Frogmouth was deep into bush unfortunately otherwise todays photo would have been a lot different.

Here I am deciding what needs doing in the late afternoon. Watering the garden won out
