Anchor

The Daily Word Prompt: Anchor

I found this anchor on the headland at Evans Head. It dates from around 1900 according to the plaque. I should have paid more attention to what was written, alas I did not. The anchor doesn’t come from a named vessel as it was found by fishermen caught in their nets. It is quite rusty which was the appeal.

Thirst

The Daily Word Prompt January 6: Thirst

As this drought drags on I have been putting out water for the birds (I always have had bird baths and water for birds)  and animals. Since the fires have ravaged my property I have also been putting out Macropod food for the Wallabies and any other marsupial who cruises through. The food is dry so they need a water source nearby to quench their thirst.
