Clifton Park to Bunbury

Friday, October 23, 2015

DSC_0083We saw nature’s oldest living organism today. The biologists out there can correct the details here. Thrombolites look like round mounds of hardened sponge but are actually bacterial micro-organisms that pre-date most other life on earth and are really DSC_0085living fossils. The Lake Clifton thrombolites are 2,000 years old.

Checking into the caravan park at 9:30 a.m. we lucked out in getting the last campsite. Our division of labour is that Geoff usually swims while I do laundry, my favorite household task. I’d just hung out the clothes when I heard the unmistakable sounds of a bagpipe. Following the strains of Amazing Grace brought me to a lone piper under a gum tree who said that he was practising for the Brunswick Agricultural Fair tomorrow.
