The joys of your own private beach

Thanks to the last lot of floods, I have one. A nice sandy bar, shaded by trees, next to a stream.

I still need to do a bit of work on the track, but that's just 30 minutes with the scrubcutter. A bit of pick & shovel and we can now drive in with 2wd- while it's summer, anyway.

Thanks to a little dam building project, the water is deep enough to get wet- let a couple of boys loose and they will dam a stream every time. Helped by a few bigger lads, of course!

The only access is through our property, or by walking up the stream for a couple of k's. Blackberry and gorse keeps the great unwashed out along the banks.

I'm in the process of building a hut about one minute from there- 'Artist's' impression above.

Totally private- this spot can't be seen without a helicopter!
