About Sunday Stills:

Terri here has now  moved into her new abode and her friend from Always Write  was caring for Sunday Stills while she did so. I will share this post soon too.

May is here and if you too want to follow the prompts here they are for May 2021.

For our planned move from the landlocked space of North Western Sydney back in 2014 we both knew we wanted more space around us, nature and W A T E R.

My husband and I both had childhood and teen years by the waters of towns and cities of N.S.W. but we could not afford to buy anywhere near those areas when we returned to the city after teaching in the country.

We always holidayed annually near the beach, and it was to this area we have retired. Still not purchased a house but we are renting where we feel like we belong for now.

Water IS All Around Us.

The Wyong River.

We live on land which  belongs to the local Darkinjung people who are the original inhabitants of this land. European settlers also farmed this land and it was only a short while ago (less than 10 years) that where we live was a place for dairy cows. The Wyong River’s source is in the hills we see in the distance from near where we live and it meanders in gentle times, and floods in times of big rains. I visit the river at different locations. One is at Tacoma as it readies itself to join Tuggerah Lakes, which then flows to the sea. Another is what I call Porter’s Creek which is where I often go to contemplate and appreciate nature and just up from there is the place, of the original Wyong Milk Factory,  where the fresh water from the river meets the brackish water of the lakes.

Tuggerah Lakes. A Huge Inland Water System.

I see the lakes at various places near us: Toukley, Gorokan, Budgewoi, Tuggerawong, Wyongah, North Entrance and The Entrance.

And undoubtedly my favourite. The Pacific Ocean.

Also known by Tasman Sea – our nearest neighbour to the east is New Zealand. Each beach along the East Coast of Australia has unique qualities and often different coloured texture and types of sand. I sometimes walk on Lakes Beach, and down to Soldier’s Beach. These are places I see the surf and the waves. I also visit the rock platforms close to shore. So much water. So much to enjoy. And I do!

What is the water like where you live?
