Where There’s Smoke…..

21 Oct

Our morning break in the park took on quite a different complexion today. The all-pervasive smell of smoke hung in the air.

It may look just like a pleasant mist, but the reality is that it’s an unpleasant reminder of the devastating bushfires in the N.S.W. Blue Mountains.

The smoky river....

    Once again some of our families are going to be facing a difficult Christmas after losing everything. So sad.

    Have the fires abated near you Margaret?

      They have never been very close, Debbie, though the smoke here has been quite dense. Are they near you?

        No, thank goodness! I was away in NZ for most of the time so didn’t realise how bad they were until I got back!
