Working the land - Water


Much of the countryside is very beautiful at the moment. I visited friends on the Central Coast for a few days this week and meandered through paddocks and along fence-lines.


When I last visited, eighteen months ago, Peter had created a new dam and was landscaping a paddock in preparation for sowing general pastures. The difference between then and now is just astounding.


Peter had a triple by-pass just after Easter and this week his cardiologist gave him the all clear to complete the fences in the back paddocks.

The rain has made a huge difference to the country side. We'll probably go bush sometime over the weekend.

Love the light and country reflected in the last shot.

Wonderful shots. Great landscape. It's always like a wonder what Mother Nature is presenting to us.

Thanks for those shots. I've only been to Australia once. Melbourne and the Great South Coast. Come see some shots I've been posting about Central Coast California.

Yes, I was pleased when I saw Peter. He has lost weight, yes, but looks really good and with the same can-do attitude.
