Dave's visit

Dave was back in Australia for 2 weeks at the beginning of April. He managed to squeeze in an afternoon at Amherst. Here are some photos.

It's dry dry dry, as you can see in this stitched together panorama shot from the far side. Dam is to the far right, house is to the middle right, hobbit hole and caravan is to the middle left.

The dam ridge is the most pronounced we've seen yet.

Dad has started working on the preparations for painting the house, setting up a mobile scaffold he can use to get to the top sections.

Dave got up the scaffold and took some closeup's of the freize pattern. It's in good shape, but I need to work out the colours to paint it.
