    • Thanks Lee, it has always been interesting how nations doctor their history to make it all good. Unfortunately Australia has suffered from many omitted occurrences and inaccurate statements, especially considering the Queen was told Australia was deemed Terra Nullius before they sent convicts here. My Scottish heritage is constantly disgusted with my English heritage, having explored the both and traveled there. Many Australians do not know the truth about Cook and what he and his family suffered at the hands of the English aristocracy. Ask the Aborigines, that’s another story, as it was for your settlers writing history also.

  1. So glad you got to see the swamp harrier Ashley. I see one sometimes on my walks at the Wetlands late in the day. They are beautiful to watch in flight searching for food. And I heartily agree with you about having an “attitude of gratitude”. I have been consciously doing this since I moved to Tasmania and is now almost second nature to me, and it definitely makes a difference in how you deal with things that happen in life. Life is short so it is best to live in the moment for we will never get that moment again. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Thanks Sue, so glad you have a healthy positive attitude with your new start in Tassie, have prayed it that it will work out for you there. It is true every moment is to savoured, enjoyed and appreciated with thanks. Took my daughter and her family to the airport very early this morning, they are over there in a little town next to Launceston. I told them about the wetlands and Spoonies, she said they are keen to go there as they missed it on their trip around Australia during their Gap Year. They are hoping to show their children snow up on Ben Lamond for the first time. Have a great weekend!

  2. Beaut to visit a new place, and to find some interesting new birds.

    As a colours and shapes person, I often miss the minute intricate details. A set of numbers from the bank fair sends me into a tiz, but a look at the latest food/gear catalogue and I’m all happy right through.
    In someways, I think striving to ‘work it out’ is really the anthesis of the way forward. I use “No shape No shadow” as my blog theme from an old Chinese song. The universe will work without me winding it up. 🙂
    Great shots of the Swampie. I almost always see them flying away.

    Sunny here today, had a good morning in the paddocks.

    • Thanks David, for sharing your thoughts and experiences, I agree that trying to work it out misses the point of the moment is for as there is so much more to life to be experienced then what the world confronts us with each day. Have a restful and enjoyable weekend and stay warm. We have just been hit with an icy blast of cold wind good rain which I think you would have had more severely.
