Wrapped in St Marys event.
And the good news is …
We have secured funding for 2013, and as an annual event thereafter!

Now the preparations will begin – more soon!
i’ve been silent for a while, mainly because we’re waiting on some

Following on from my post about a
, I thought I’d share these photos: wombat
a giant gum tree –
a blackwood tree –
and a view of Mt. Elephant –

In 2010, we decided to live permanently in/near St Marys.
We bought a block of land as a symbol of our commitment – half bush, and half paddock.

Later, when we levelled a site for our new shed, we found wombat footprints in the clay …
[I’ve enhanced the photo digitally so the footprints show up more clearly.]
Here is a photo of a Tasmanian wombat that I took in 2009 – not on our block, but on Maria Island:
One day, I hope to photograph ‘our’ wombat …
