(Bensville walkies #3)
Down a quiet suburban street to the saltmarsh. So many streets lead down to the water and to wee wild places around Brisbane Water and here in Woy Woy. You'd be daft to leave.
This is North Street. It's one of twenty streets that made up Bensville. (Street map next week. Map of where Bensville is.)
The low red plant might be samphire. Even though it's red it's not ruby saltbush and it's not austral seablite. The trees are casuarina. They like it by the water.
The low red plant and the spiky reed. Both of these are also at Woy Woy, on the waterfront at Brick Wharf Road.
Peaceful and quiet in the warm winter sun.
I disturbed some dozing ducks. They paddled away slowly. That's those reeds or rushes or something again there in the foreground. You don't want to go wandering through them. Sharp as buggery.
That hill in the background is Davistown or Saratoga. Hard to tell from that angle but they're both on the same peninsula anyways.
Deepwater Plaza mural finished at last. The bastard is bloody tricky to photograph. Bad spot re light and as soon as you get the camera out every bus on the fucking peninsula comes thundering past. Oh the humanity!

Ackles gives good giggle. On yer, mate. Oh and can I lick yer boyfriend? Please?
Warm winter sun
Glorious walkies weather on Thursday and Friday. I was trapped inside doing evil work stuff but it's the same weather today and I'll soon be out under the sun with my shirt off and a steak sanger for my lunch so it's all good.
