What joy?

I am at a loss to understand the pleasure that can be derived from tearing battens off a steel frame, unless perhaps it was to beat the person found doing so senseless.  No wait, that's putting the cart before the horse.

In any case, despite the well maintained everything else, someone has decided the bin doesn't need screening.

Little things I like

I love the way bits of bark and leaf find their way into the bottom of the footprints and just sort of stay there.  Not that anyone can tell they are footprints in the soft sand.

but wait ... there's more!

OK two swallows don't make a summer, and there's not much in the way of public transport, or banks or other services around, but they are a stone's throw from the new hospital precinct.

There is no doubt they will be a great place to work in the future (possibly now) but I suspect I won't live long enough to see the planner's dream fulfilled, unless the community grows at a supersonic rate.

Not quite central business district.

The offices are wonderfully located of course, and you can always have a break under the umbrella on the verandah, but they just appear to be a long way from anything else.

Planning dilemma.

Here's the problem:  We live in a town that's fifty kilometres long and not very wide.   That's the edge of the built up area over there.   That's also the edge of the commercial centre of the type that sits outside the city limits in other situations.  

There is a bit of effort being made to create a town centre of sorts around this lake, which is a lovely thought, but where is the centre of a town of this dimension?  

I think it will take a hundred years or so to sort itself out.

Work on the hospital is coming along nicely, although there'll probably be a claim for delay for this day due to the effect of rain.

This photograph was taken  five months ago though, so another update on progress is a little overdue.

Watch this space!

The etching on the  paving at Eumundi looks far too structured to have been an ad hoc thing, but whatever the case, the texture is a lovely thing.
