The local council decided to move our streams. Uh huh. They were afraid they would start to erode the nearby coastal road. I understand the reasons and it was still very strange to have such heavy upheavel in our quiet little corner of the world.
It made a heady combination for the small one...the diggers etc and the beach.
Oof! We saw the beginning of the work, checked on it daily and we were there when the last machine packed away.
You'll be pleased to know that our streams are nice tidy straight lines heading straight for the sea now.
It jumped us into a beautiful impromptu look at water and how it moves and behaves naturally.
Take a look at THIS selection of aerial pictures from Google images. Nature just rocks doesn't it?
