Anyone who has stayed with us in the past couple of years will probably know we've been trying to clean out our wetlands-dam which, over the years, has become choked with thick long grass. Today's the day!!! It's been so dry that the dam is almost empty, just a couple of deeper spots left with some water. So our wonderful machine-operator Wes is here with his excavator and doing a fantastic job as usual (last year we had him booked but his excavator broke down ... then it RAINED!). It will look bare for a while but here's hoping for a good rainy season - we get so much run-off from the hills that the dam can sometimes fill overnight.
