Fraser Island - Lake McKenzie


As we approached the Lake the tour guide said, perhaps you have seen postcards of a beautiful blue lake fringed with white sands.  It's not like that at the moment.  We've had so much rain over the past few months the water level is high and covering the sand and runnoff and vegetation has tainted the crystal clear water to a murky green.

And so our day ended with disappointment.  Here is what I hoped to see 

And in case you are wondering, we didn't see any dingos (native dogs) either.  After one of them killed a child some years ago they were extensively culled so sightings are more rare these days.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

Musing:
The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
