Turkeys!


They have been known to break the hearts of many a gardener, wild scrub (bush) turkeys like nothing better than to scratch vigorously in places that people would prefer they didn't.

Perhaps it would be tolerable if they stuck to one spot, but they don't!

Irony


On the other side of this pathway there is a grass buffer and a naturally vegetated dunal system which the community conservation group works to maintain in its pristine state.

On the building side though, a well known international resort chain is happy to let "Singapore Daisy", a plant so damaging to the native environment that it is virtually banned from sale, run riot in the interests of ease of maintenance!

Community Nature Conservation


Community Nature Conservation is a Council initiative which allows community groups to tend for bushland areas in their neighbourhoods.  

The groups take responsibility for removing undesirable and noxious plants from the bushland areas, which are often prone to invasion from garden species, which compete with natural vegetation.

Here a few bags of some sort of exotic pest awaits collection.

Once common


Years ago, the site of a vehicle slowly dying of rust was a common one.  Now they seem to be replaced long before the paint disappears.

The character of our town is changing in so many subtle ways.

Romantic Mess


There's a romantic myth about boats and harbours and moorings, but the reality is that our perception ignores the reality.   Really, have a look at this photograph, they are just a mess of tangled stainless steel.

Dimples



I have a pair of these thongs with the little dimples on them.

After wearing them for a day, I can go barefoot and not slip on any surface!

Hire


Stand up paddle boars (SUPs) can be bought of course, but why buy when you can hire?
