(Random walkies in Woy Woy)
There was about an hour of blue sky yesterday. As soon as it appeared I snatched up the camera and rushed out for some some snaps.
Wasn't quick enough in the afternoon and got a power blackout halfway through blogging. Turns out there was some damage from that big storm last year and yesterday's storm was the last little push it needed. One of the Dear Old Things was all of a twitter, convinced we were going to be out for days again but it's fixed now.
Woy Woy Bay from Woy Woy. Quiet weekday water with the Woy Woy bus terminal (bottom centre) and the railway station (bottom right).
Equipment raft, pile driver & footbridge from Woy Woy Wharf.
The blue raft has piles and stuff for making jetties. The pile driver is for bunging in the piles to support the jetties. There's hundreds of private and dozens of public jetties on Brisbane Water.
The hill in the middle distance is Parks Bay/Koolewong. The one behind it is Tascott.
Grevillea acanthifolia. Australian native wildflowers popular with gardeners.
