Pranged my car yesterday…not sure if it’ll be written off or not….feeling sad. I don’t know if I have enough finances for a new one. And also sad because we can’t go out driving occasionally like we normally do, to remain sane. Luckily we visited Brunswick Heads on Tuesday, and we had a great day, on the beach and in little shops. (Good coffee too!) The beach has been somewhat damaged by the recent storm surges and the river was running very high, a big swell at the river mouth. But the day was pleasant and no wind on the beach. Eventually the sky started to clear from the west. A beautiful day out.
Walking up on the mountain, a fave thing to do, we discovered some new stuff. The best is the giant pill bug, related to millipedes. It was about 5 centimetres long!….and moving slowly on many legs. The huge fallen rainforest tree, covered in moss, created a long cave, and probably a good home for many creatures. Other mossy rocks and a fallen orange flower also made interesting images….so here they are.
One of our favourite spots to visit is the Mt Tamborine Gardens. It’s always a restful day out, and very pleasant strolling around these quiet gardens. There’s some rainforest plants and some colourful cottagey ones as the air is cooler up on the mountain. Here’s some photos I took during our walk.
