Back at the beach


I am back at the beach and as promised talking the walk in the opposite direction along the cycle path.  We start off wandering beside the creek which is a pleasant tangle of vegetation.  It must be very difficult to keep waterways natural and clear when they are within the urban sprawl.

The day is lovely and sunny but a strong breeze is blowing.

  1. Soft winter sun peeping through the gums adds a touch of warmth and I'm sure added to the beauty of your walk.

  2. The sun was soft but the wind wasn't. Made for a lovely brisk walk.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
Musing:
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
