My sister came for a visit and took some photos. Always good to look from a different perspective.
Sugar Cane has been harvested in a nearby farm
(but the Crush, as they call the 6 months of cutting and crushing of cane, still has a few months to go).
A cane train in the middle of the town of Bundaberg is taking the sugar cane to the mill nearby.
The cane is then crushed and turned into the different types of sugary stuff that we use for so many things.
Smoke in the distance from a fire (maybe a back burn or a sugar cane burn off)
A total fire ban is now in place because of the high risk fire conditions (including the drought)
Me kissing the horse next door (Clancy) on the nose
He wants it to rain so he can get some decent grass happening!
The trees are green but the grass is like brittle, dry hay
We’re collecting fresh branches for the mini-goats and alpacas
the boyboys go chompy chomp
Who are you?

These are gorgeous and give such a great flavour of your life in the farm. Your skies are huge. Was the horse a good kisser?
Hahahaha – it was a one way kiss – he has a lovely soft nose and that wonderful horse smell but not to be trusted this horse – bit me on the shoulder once when I went in the field with him (the bite was done in fun but it hurt a lot) – thanks Kate 🙂
the alpacas are adorable! Lovely series of photos, hope you get some rain soon
We got a small amount yesterday which was terrific and it really freshened up the air – maybe more this weekend – fingers crossed 🙂 thanks Juliet
Those shots give a real sense of the difference between your last place and the farm…hope the fires don’t get any closer.
Thanks Charles – I prefer living here to on the beach – we’re near a bigger town and there’s less driving for me. I did love the beach but it was getting very eroded from the huge tides down our end of town – can’t see it improving.
The cane scenes are like home. The alpaca – aren’t!
hahaha thought not!
Lovely photos, Lisa. Is that Jazz watching the trampoline fun? Love the pic of you and Clancy, GKM 😉 – what a sweet horse.
hahahaha (I have a number of personalities bb) – that is Jazzy there – and Sheba is a dark blob on the far left near the water tank 🙂 The horse is not so sweet – almost bucked his owner off the other day when they were herding cattle – very temperamental and can move so quick – but still, sweet sometimes (I love him).
