What a nice small island Ian, and there's a house (or shet) too. Must be great to stay a few days there. LIKE! Greetings Berend

Years ago, before the shed was built, we rowed across to this island for a lunch picnic. It was more exciting as an anticipation, than it was being on the island. It didn't take us long tao explore the whole island! There did not appear to be any treasure there.

Thanks Berend.

Both of these tiny islands resemble jewels in the ocean dear Ian. What a beautiful place for a picnic. Maybe you didn't dig deep enough for the treasure.

You seem to living the high life these days! ;-)

Warm wishes from Norway, Amelia

Dear Amelia. I love the artistic and poetic way you interpret landscapes. Better than Wordsworth!

As for the high life, 'tis a wonderful thing to soar with eagles and look down at the beauty of the creation. All the images are from two flights with my son, between Brisbane and Bundaberg, but I assure you we used different routes each time - for photo opportunities.

I presume your flying between England and Norway comes to an end soon.

Glad that you have seen a couple of gems.

Warmest regards from sunny Queensland,
