Cow and Calf rocks

Saturday 27th March 2021, 1.15pm (day 3,502)

Cow and Calf, 27/3/21

From no direction do these rocks look particularly like a cow and its offspring, but that’s what they’re called. It doesn’t matter; it’s a dramatic spot, with the creatures grazing on the heather above the town of Ilkley, which can become the 339th different identifiable place to feature on here. No, I wasn’t at home.

Point Lookout

Thursday 4th April 2013, 2.45pm (day 588)

Point Lookout, 4/4/13

This headland sits at the north-eastern corner of Stradbroke Island and lives up to its name, at least, if the sea is what you want to look at. So named by Captain James Cook on 17th May 1770, who presumably did need to see what was going on out there now and again. Clare follows his example, nearly 243 years later.

Hog Bay, Penneshaw, Kangaroo Island

Tuesday 5th February 2013, 4.20pm (day 530)

Hog Bay, Penneshaw, 5/2/13

 

A thoroughly prosaic name for a very beautiful spot. Penneshaw is a little town (population 1,500) at the point where the ferry arrives on Kangaroo Island from the mainland – which can be seen in the very far distance of this shot, this being the tip of the Fleurieu Peninsula, south of Adelaide.

When I arranged to have my sabbatical here in Australia, and spend the first part of it travelling while I started on my book, this is pretty much the kind of place where I pictured myself. I’m here until Saturday. This is good news.
