Trees and Icebergs

This morning I went for a walk along the Williamstown foreshore.
Coming back, on one side of the street were a row of beautiful Paperbark trees.
I didn't have the heart to peel off some of the bark, though it was tempting, as I love anything to do with paper.



 On the other side of the street were beautiful Eucalyptus trees, from one extreme to the other, no peeling bark.
Called into the Point Cook Community Centre on the way home to see a photographic exhibition on Iceland....EXCELLENT.

"Jokulsarlon is a glacial lagoon on the south coast of Iceland. The area is frequently battered by wind and heavy rain and received a lot of ash and dust from the 2010 eruption. The ice floats out to sea through a narrow channel and is often washed back onto the black lava sand beach by storms and tides".
The photos were a stark contrast of black, grey and vivid blues of the ice.

  1. Iceland is well worth visiting. I am sure you and John would enjoy driving around. You could make a side trip to Greenland.

  2. The texture on the paperbarks is fantastic. The ex sounds very interesting.
