This was the sky that confronted me as I stepped outside early this morning.
Talk about “the best laid plans”.... I had planned to kayak to a favorite shorebird roost but I just do not enjoy this kind of weather while out on the water. So instead I decided to organize my photos from the last few days and post a few of the Cooloola Airport. What a grand title for a very simple affair! I am sure there are other places like this in small towns all around Australia – but it still feels a bit incongruous when confronted with the reality after following the very proper looking signs! This is the airport hanger. Sometimes there are as many as three small planes parked there waiting for their owners.
This is the airport runway - a grass runway in an open space in the bush Right now the tracks leading to and from the runway are edged with flowers. Several varieties of yellow pea flowers (which I won't even attempt to ID) edge the track and sweet smelling Leucopogon is set back under the taller trees.
The airport is certainly not the biggest or best that one could see, but the landscaping - which owes nothing at all to those who planned and developed the airport - is definitely fantastic!
