Nothing much else happening to report. Surveyor was going to do the features and contours this week and will be sending a report which will go to the builders to determine if the plan we are thinking of will work.
Well thats all the news for now, hope you had some rain

6.30 am this morning this huge truck rolled up, rattled its way down the gravel road, turned around then stopped just in the view of my kitchen window. Being nosey, I had to watch to see what he was up to, could have been a cattle rustler. Hmmm, no, this other truck about half the first ones size rolls up, drives past the big one then backs right up to about a metre between them. You gotta admire these truck drivers, they know their stuff. To my entertainment they dropped a ramp between them and loaded cattle from the small truck onto the big guy, what a racket. Then little guy goes away, big guy sits. about 5 mins later little guy rolls back in again and repeats the process. I am surmising the big truck was unable to get to the yards where the cattle where and it took two loads to full the big truck up.
Very entertaining, as it was only dusk I had to lighten the photo so you could see the smaller truck, it had two trailers and if you look close you will see the white cab and dark colour trailers.
Its 27 degrees today and very pleasant, I love anything below 30 and above 20. No rain yet, forcast for Tuesday Wednesday next week, so its still bottle watering the fruit trees.
Life is good down in the valley

This is the block before the tree removalist's came in yesterday
This was fascinating, that green machine is a stump grinder and is being operated by the guy on the left by remote control, did such a great job.
Looking up from the orchard
and down from across the road
Just waiting for our little house to be dropped in, next step is getting the surveyor in.

|Looking down onto the gardens from the balcony where we had coffee and cake.|
|Hows this for a great idea, on the edge of the balcony round pvc pipe made into a herb gardens. Must store that idea for future reference.|
|Beautiful Balinese style courtyards, the mosaics where amazing. Lots of great ideas.|

|They scrap over who has the best figs. I have to be quick to pick some myself. We have had them with our meals and there are plenty for the birds and me.|
|I didn't realise that this one I zoomed in on was a baby silvereye in the camelia tree.|
