Today. Cool air dropping. Wind tossing the tops of the gum trees.
Rosellas twittering. Cockatoos cackling.
One or two thunder claps boom over the valley.
Cool skin turns to goosebumps.
Rain hurls down, briefly.
This is a place we used to sit often and watch the sunset, when we were living in the area. We had a deposit on a house block in about this spot (one street over) but let it go as we thought the space was too tight.
The view is much changed now as the last time we were there the ruins of the stone cottage (bottom left of photo), the home of the pioneering Day family, were no longer visible. The site is a last remnant of reserve land on Days Hill but surrounded by a new housing estate, Elmslea East, in Bungendore, New South Wales, Australia. ♦
