and I was right next to a car...

Today's view of a nesting area for ibises at Coolart wetlands, Somers
and the first day of real sunshine in weeks...
Compared with previous years at this time,
I felt the nesting island seemed smaller and the ibises fewer...
Perhaps all the rain and cool winds have reduced nesting numbers here...

historic cannon in the garden of the Churchill Island Heritage Farm...
The cannon is believed to have been given to Samuel Amess
by his friend and neighbour from nearby Cape Woolamai - Captain John Cleeland.
Perhaps it was his [Cleeland's] sea going experience which led him to extend hospitality to Lt. James Waddell of the Confederate raider the Shenandoah when she visited Melbourne in 1865. The vessel had sailed 44,000 miles in an epic raiding voyage during which she touched port only twice. Obviously impressed by the warm welcome afforded by Cleeland, Lt Waddell responded by leaving a cannon and some cannon balls. Today the cannon can be seen in front of the Churchill Island homestead.
