I live between two houses — one north of Adelaide, one south.
Both are within walking distance of the beach.
Because of this, I often blog about coastal things: the sand and the sea.
But not far from our house down south there are wetlands.
Some days I see Eurasian coots there:
Some days I see Pacific black ducks:
The birds squabble and fight amongst themselves, honking and quacking and ruffling their feathers and bobbing beneath the water.
The water is reedy but clear …
… and sun-dappled.
Water always brings me a sense of peace.
