Tuesday 7th June 2016


I headed out to Tidbinbilla today; I might as well make the most of my annual pass! As the direct route via Point Hut Crossing was closed due to flooding I went the long way, through Tharwa. The river there was quite swollen.

At Gibraltar Falls there was also a lot of water coming over. I was "interviewed" by a girl from the Canberra Times, who happened to be there with a photographer, checking out the various rivers & falls after the heavy rains (The interview didn't make the paper, but I am in a photograph of the falls, though only I would know it is me!).

Tidbinbilla was damp & empty. I only saw one other person, but heaps of fungi, & orchid basal leaves.

Usually you can see the river bed on both banks

Golden hour!

It was my annual skin check today, and I had no need for any treatment, which is a relief. I usually Slip and Slap, but am not keen on Slop, so it was a good result.
