Posting from a tablet today in the great outdoors. A light drizzle is falling and autumn is coming on earlier than ever. But who cares? My little dog is with me and life is good. Jo is here too but she’s asleep indoors, in the van. I have some favourite outdoor shots on the tablet, so here goes. For Ailsa’s Outdoors.
Uluru 1974. I tried to stitch these but no go. It was raining very lightly on this day. A rare experience. For Ed’s Sunday Stills
Last Sunday, after going to a nice 8 little course lunch and a glass of wine each Jo and I thought it may be prudent to go for a little walk in the Bush. This was in the bushland behind Arthur’s Seat on the Mornington Peninsula. I was entranced by the Casuarina forest we entered upon arrival. In front of me was a carpet of sheoak needles. The ground and land was very dry as we are experiencing a very dry period here in Victoria, having had 95 mm of rain since Jan 1; 60 mm of that falling on 4 days. For Cee’s which way #11There was some beautiful flowers on the journey as well as the ferns from the previous post.

I choose Tasmania for my walls, as I am missing Tasmania so much today. Hobart now has the most amazing art facility, MONA – Museum of old and new art. You cannot visit Tasmania without visiting MONA. Added for Word Press’s Wall
I am itching to return to Tasmania to fulfill some fantasies of mine. Below I have some photographs which are only small snippet of the fantastic nature of Tasmania.
St John’s Catholic Church (1837) and burial ground. This is the oldest Catholic Church still in use in Australia. The church has had three spires. The present one was raised in 1972. My Great great grandfather witnessed the first marriage here and signed for the groom, who was illiterate.

Until yesterday I was certainly unaware that beaver was a colour. Before, I only knew of dam building rodents and “Flying High” references. For Jennifer’s one word photo challenge: Beaver
Orange seems to be a favourite of challenge masters. I guess we all have quite a few orange photos. Especially sunrises and sunsets of which will add a few here . See more here
