mirrorred_star: Yuna from Final Fantasy X-2 (Default)
I have been busy lately. Like, actually getting out of the house and doing things. The term has started back, so Tuesday I was back out to photo editing. Wednesday I tagged along with a cert 2 conservation group to Limeburners' Bay, took heaps of photos, and accompanied the group back to the classroom. Thursday I thought was going to be Horticulture, but the class actually starts back up next week. So I took some photos of where Rosewall Primary school used to be, and walked back. And I've still mostly gotten my writing done around that.

I got asked if I wanted to actually do the cert 2, and I am seriously thinking about it. It started off that I'd been asked if I would enjoy it and I thought it sounded interesting but I wasn't sure, so I went to check it out. And Limeburners' is cool. It's actually not far from where I live, and it's so unusual. It's a salt marsh, I think, and it used to be a lagoon before they dredged some of it so they could build a yacht club there. And it's... very much the opposite of what we still think of as a beautiful landscape- the natives plants are more often brown or red or gold or silvery than green, and the landscape is flat and smells of salt from the sea, and the area where the mangroves grew smelled like sulphur, but when you are actually there, it is a beautiful place. We carry so much of the mythical European ideal landscape of greenery as far as the eye can see with us that we can't see how beautiful the landscape before us actually is until we go and look with our eyes and not our cultural baggage.
