Thinking of my gardens at home today.  I wonder what flowers will be there to greet us.

Around here there are banksias, paper bark trees and grevilleas in flower.

A poem for today
I started Early - Took my Dog by Emily Dickinson

Be still

Morning calm.

Psalm 46:10 New International Version (NIV)
“Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

Golden hour

Glad we are here it’s very chilly in the mountains today.

Looking the other way

Looking other otherway from our campsite.

Retirement Bliss Did I say I enjoyed not checking emails? There is no phone reception at the campsite and I have to trudge up a hill to get any. I am finding the rapid Digital Detox a little hard to take. Working 45 years in IT has me wired, it will take a while I think.

First Watery One

I could get used to this.

Myall Shores

Myall Shores Camping Area

That's better.  We are here for a week or so so I expect there will be lots of watery shots coming up.
I've found there is no mobile reception but wi-fi if I trudge up the hill -- so reading, knitting and navel gazing for a while.

A book I have read recently
"My Brother Jack" by David Meredith
I am working my way through Australian Classics.  This is a good one, very readable.
I remember it was set as a school English text in my brother's year.  It was 1970s Queensland, the censorship era, so they had a "student edition".  I would love to look at it, because I can't quite figure our how they would keep the story moving along properly without the sex.
