It is time to pack up and leave our summer home in Tasmania. I took some photos on my penultimate morning walk to remind me of how beautiful and changeable it is here every day. These are the new steps to the beach and new picnic table. We even have a new toilet block. I often take the steps and pathways the Council has carved toward the beach between the horizontal streets above Binalong Bay. They are short cuts down to the beach and each day I take a different set and always see something I hadn’t seen before, like a new plant, a shrub, a tree or even a detail on a house I hadn’t noticed before.
These yachts stayed overnight in Skeleton Bay. I was tempted to hang a sign out offering dinner in return for a sail with them.
I am going to miss my rabbits, they boldly come up to our lawn each morning and night to nibble and sometimes annoyingly make little holes. We have the fruit trees well guarded as they would love the new shoots.
Here is a close up because they do like to blend in. The little black blobs in the foreground are droppings from the Kangaroo wallabies also known as ‘paddymelons’ that come up to eat the grass around 4am in the morning.The new cafe seem to be going well, even if the blackboard needs some attention.
David is Ken for the Barbie, a partner for the bikini clad woman who greets you as you drive in and although her proportions are all wrong I still look forward to seeing her each year as I arrive. This is the view I will see as I drive out today.
