Menozplorer continues - against all odds!

Despite the etherwobblies and a sick Voovoo the Vaio, your intrepid daily blogger has found her way...

Continuing views and news of the visit to Hawksbury River.

There is something to enjoy in every minute and in every nook and cranny... this could be true even within the concrete jungle if we know how to look.  It is easier in such a place as this!!

As it happens, am glad now that I had all these photos to share with you as it is making it a bit easier for me to post a whole week ahead...all I have to day is say;
"and here we have the transport shuttle from Dangar Island to Parsley Bay which for reasons undetermined prefers to push than pull..."

Here is the fellow I showed you yesterday. How did I determine the pole is fifteen feet? Well, a pelican standing is about a metre and I think that white part would also be about that...and it fits three times into the visible part of the pole.  Easy really.

This is one of my absolute favourite views.  These casuarina trees are half way along the foreshore path and provide a lovely frame for the distant shore.

Another of the stunning views. For this one I went up onto the top of the bluff, known as Flat Rock and this is looking almost due East along the estuary.

    Thanks Puddles darlin' - refocusing the eyeballs helps when assessing downed trees too... just saying!!

  3. I agree with you both! Your photos are lovely today!

  4. Gorgeous photos. I love 'em. I like rivers and boats and pelicans and trees and then more boats. Makes me feel I actually got out of the house today.
    Indoors, being sickly too much.
    Started exercising today. I have to be slim and beautiful by the year 2025, and if I increase today's 30 seconds exponentially...I might find out what exponentially means.
    Luv, K
