THE HEATHLAND – BEYOND HOLLYWOOD

Having researched the location I picked something I would remember, Hollywood Street, no boulevard here.  The street I wanted was two past that.  I’d chosen not to use google maps in order to save batteries, don’t want to run low while I’m taking photographs. The Princes Highway was busy despite lockdowns so I gratefully turnedContinue reading “THE HEATHLAND – BEYOND HOLLYWOOD”

  WITH FRONDS LIKE THESE, WHO NEEDS ANEMONES

“What’s that blue thing?”  People had texted me after I sent the photo out.  Truth is, that’s exactly what I said when I saw it.  The Eight-armed Sea Star (Meridiastra calcar) is, according to some sites, quite common and its colours can vary greatly.  It’s omnivorous so living in a rock pool offers many opportunities,Continue reading ”  WITH FRONDS LIKE THESE, WHO NEEDS ANEMONES”

After hooking up my bike on the rack inContinue reading “BOMBO ROCKS – IT CERTAINLY DOES!”

A SWELL DAY OUT

The train rolled out of Bomaderry.  I’d been planning to do this but had put it on the backburner.  So far back I’d forgotten but a cancellation had put it back on the agenda.  That, and the fact the swell was up.  I was Kiama bound. The countryside was a feast for the eyes.  VerdantContinue reading “A SWELL DAY OUT”
