Its a fallen tree. Which begs the question ...

Given the shoreline of Southern Bribie has shifted around by 30-40m over the last 50 years due to cycles of erosion and accretion, the chance of it being the same tree is diabolically small.

What can the local indigenous people teach us about talking romantic whimsy out our arse, Steve?

Have the barbaric lives of the black natives of Bribie been civilized yet? Have the black natives been taught to kneel and not steal yet? If they I haven't I might feel a bit nervous leaving my surfy board lying around.

While that is true, particularly the area from Buckleys Hole around to the surf beach ......further north, from the jetty, there is a permanent ledge of coffee rock which stabilises the coastline.

This is most evident where Fairweather is standing, which is at Whitepatch. You can clearly see the coffee rock slabs and the coffee rock ledge seaward of where he is standing.
Just behind him are mature forests of Callitris and Angophora, no way those have been altered in 50 years. Some of the trees would be hundreds of years old.

The jetty, by the way, was built in 1912 and is still in the original position.

Do you know what Ted Clayton called his swansong masterpiece fishing article, about roaming those very same flats at Whitepatch that Fairweather is walking?

You ready?

The exploration of inner space.

It is a wonderfully meditative and detailed natural history essay as well as an ode to "interconnected timeless isolated drifting."

There's a remote pool that only fills in wet seasons that I've been eyeing off for 5 years, should be primed for my Christmas visit.

Have you gone to that drain we chatted about? Lots of giant herring being caught on the Goldy at the moment.

Getting back to coffee rock....can we get a geological title for it.
Sandstone?
Conglomerate?
Mudstone?
Basalt?

There were emus on the island when I was growing up. Used to come up to our backdoor.

Gone now.

Some say it isn't really rock. Handy if you get perched on some while 4wdriving. A whack with something hammer-like and it breaks off very easily.
