Spent the weekend over at the cottage and managed to put some paint on the new sections of the front verandah that We've been rebuilding....... aggggghhh painting pickets.... wish you could buy them pre-painted! Never mind.; with the iPod on shuffle, plenty of swing, blues and rockabilly.... I eventually fell into a painting trance like state and before long had finished for the day. I did however have a great walk with the dog across the park to South beach where I was again amazed by Port Fairy's jet black Basalt rocks; courtesy of the Mt Rouse Volcano in Penshurst some 60km away. Around 400,000 years ago it managed to spew a river of hissing, steaming lava into the sea. The contrasting colour of the sea, surf, white foam, sand, still tidal pools, bright orange lichens and amazing, green, carpeting succulants make this place an ancient place in every way.
