Diamond Python

A week after the April storms, our resident diamond python is looking for a dry home for winter. Our new boatshed seemed to provide an ideal location.

I don't know if it is the original one or if there is a family of them.

The inspiration for Clean Up Australia Day came from passionate yachtie, Ian Kiernan, who was horrified at the amount of rubbish he encountered in the world's oceans. From the beginning this initiative was a great success. Over the past 25 years, Australians have contributed more...

This year has been an abundance of flowers starting with the wattles and dillwynia in August, boronia, black eyed susans, patersonia, in September some of which are still flowering in November along with the Eucalyptus. The annual wildflower walk was held 28 September with 15 people attending.
