Gripped by nature at Separation Creek

We are often reminded that we are just spectators to nature’s life cycles.

Sometimes we see Dolphins cruising past, sometimes we see them in death, like this skeleton on the rocks a few minutes north from Sea Zen. Our dog Tanook didn’t quite know what to do about it, bones too big to chew on, embarrassing really!

You may recall that back in July, the sand dropped a metre overnight, last week it came back again.

I worked out around 40,000 tons of it moved around in nature’s storms, a mere nothing when nature wants to change.

Our local rockpools continue their daily emergence at low tide. Great for a dip as Tanook discovered.

The great wall in nearby Stanway Dv has been finished, allowing a permanent back road between Separtion Creek and Wye River, in case the road is ever blocked a gain. Over 8000 indigenous plants have been planted so it blends back with nature.

Workers are hard at it, fixing the unstable slopes below Paddy’s Path, hopefully to be finished before summer.
Around town, drain pipes and culverts have been renewed, and another dozen or so houses were rebuilt this year. It’s fascinating to walk around town and see the diversity of houses, all fireproofed and ember proofed to the latest guidelines. Yesterday my tradies replaced our Sea Zen side deck to make sure it too is ember proof. All is in readiness for the summer holidays.
