On the Drift

A beautiful day today – warm, sunny with just the right breeze.

 

This morning Anne got a crash course in basketry using the cumbungi/cattail from yesterday’s gathering. She did great making a sweet little plain weave basket! Didn’t get to the second option of a diagonal plaited basket but I made a sample for her to follow.

 

After lunch we headed off to climb the Big Drift in Wilson’s Promentory National Park. The BD is a large area along the coast that is sand – sand dunes on steroids! Really impressive with some cool patterns created by the winds. Anne posted a picture on Facebook if you are interested in seeing a bit of it.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10213010359001895&set=a.10204623237129090.1073741828.1479769821&type=3

 

On the way home we saw about a dozen commorants in a tree waiting to dive into a farm pond. Four kangaroos jumped across the far side of one of the paddocks.

 

Tomorrow I head to Melbourne. Definitely will be taking many lovely memories of Black Swamp Road life with me…
