Beautiful!Would love to see that all with my own eyes one day :)
Hi Nicole, Glad you liked it. btw we love showing visitors around!
Thanks Mick for another page well worth reading.And a great reference tool.
Thanks Neil, and thanks for your help in finding and ID'ing some of these plants.
They are fascinating plants Mick - such a pity that they are so often ignored ...and damaged. Your salt marsh observations are very interesting, thank you.CheersBarbara
Thanks Barbara, and I feel that I am only just beginning to understand these salt marshes. This year has been particularly interesting as all the rain has brought down quite a lot of sediment and it remains to be seen what this will do to parts of the area.
Great info here and the photos are wonderful. I esp. love the bee on the sarcornia/whatever we are calling it these days/marsh plant. Try eating it, it's delicious if you are into salt.
Hi Robin, yes I've tried eating it but not in any quantity. I understand that blanching makes it very nice as a vege.
Maybe one day I make it ;)
Hi Nicole, it's worth coming!
I bet! Wish there were some jobs for hubby so we could stay a while :D
Hi Nicole, that would be great. I'm completely out of touch with the job market as I'm retired and my only son is working overseas.
Hubs always keeps an eye on things, but so far nothing :/Oh well, maybe one day ;)
Hi Nicole, Good luck! And if you ever get out here remember that the country areas away from the main centers of population are quite different from the cities. Many tourists never see more than the cities and tourist destinations :-(
Thanks!I am not much of a touristdestination fan anyway :D
