A return to Good Fences

A little while ago now I had a quick trip to Warkworth to have morning tea with an old, old friend from Aussie, lunch with my lovely niece, Sharon and then a cooling afternoon drink with a mate who lives locally.  I'm not the most organised person in the world but things just worked out perfectly that day.

While waiting for my morning tea friends to arrive I took a walk along the riverbank to have a look at the Jane Gifford which is this country's last remaining rigged sailing scow and is now available for river cruises.

Later in the day I was up the other end of town and when wandering with my camera, spotted a few fences.




It's been quite a while since I linked to Gosia's Good Fences.

    1. Thanks, Lea. That last shot turned out better than I expected. It was a really hot afternoon and I expected the light to be quite harsh.

    1. Now that's a delightful connection, Shane! And a reminder to go back to the boatyard and old brickworks ruins to take more photos. I haven't been there in ages.
