A Winter's Tale

Well this morning I was scraping ice off the windscreen before I could start for work because of the heavy frost .

That is what you expect in winter if you live in the mountains.

That said we do benefit from our move north (which Downunder means closer to the Equator).

Yesterday we nipped (only two hours drive) down to visit our eldest E at Yamba where she has recently moved.

We sat here over looking the Clarence River to have lunch.

Not bad for a winter day?

Interestingly some of the water that flows past here originates in the very spring we get our domestic water at the cottage. Our little stream is almost as small as it gets, conversely the Clarence gives the local area the title "Big  River Country".

On the other side of Yamba lies the Pacific Ocean,  it hardly looks wintry does it?

Two hours sounds like more than a nip to me, lol! Amazing though that two hours away from your frost is green grass. Hope you enjoyed your visit :)

Really beautiful! TAkes a bit of imagination to conjure up the scraping of frost from windscreens when you're sweltering in 40 degrees tho. . .
