Scented Secret

I have no idea what this is called but this tall bush has the strongest of perfumes.

Good Ship "Notorious"

It's not every day that you see a Portuguese Caravel but there it was as large as life at the Hobart Wooden Boat Festival

It was handmade my a guy with big dreams.

An open grid in the deck that acts as a chimney for the open fire below.

The master suite

The open fire, note the flagstone floor

My very own pirate, the bearded wonder.

The spare bunk

Chests and the dining suite

The only rope of the ship is the one that rings the bell. The rest are called other names.

This photo is from the Herald Sun newspaper.

Notorious Sunrise by Phil Thomson just because I like it.

When Sea Eagles Fly

I often see the sea eagles flying around both my homes and usually when I want to photograph them, they fly away. But not today. There were a pair circling over head here at the beach.

Under the Grapevine

A cooling garden on a hot day. At the moment the grapes overhead are dangling down looking enticing. This pic was taken in November.
