Stormbound

April 2, 2013

Day five and a southerly storm has grounded us again. After a clear starry night when everything froze creating magical ice patterns on the small tarns.

The wind and rain arrived mid morning as we were working on the rock sphere on the bluff. The wind gusted so strongly it threatened to blow us off the edge of the cliff on which we were handling the large rocks.

 

Yesterday was the only fine clear day so after a flying visit from our patrons Martyn and Louise Myer during which Martyn joined us lugging big rocks off the mountainside for more construction, we hiked over to explore streams and waterfalls at the head of the Albert Burn. One waterfall has several spectacular tiers and should make a site for a work when the weather allows.
