Our World Tuesday - Wilsons Prom
Was away this weekend on my annual trip to Wilsons Prom with the kids. The weather was unkindly hot, and the March Flies persistent. For those of you not blessed with March Flies they are large biting flies with fearsome mouth parts and a tendency to drill into unprotected flesh. Luckily for us, and deeply unluckily for the flies, they are slow flying, clumsy and rather easy to swat.
The Prom has had a bit of a rough trot in the last few years with natural disasters – fire and floods mainly. And I could make a case for the March Flies being considered a plague! For all of this you could almost hear the place growing.
The rock slides are still bare, but even the upturned trees knocked near the sides of the slides are alive, if not completely well. Australian plants are well adapted to fire, and leaves were growing from burnt stumps and frazzled branches.
If you have never been there you need to jump on a plane / boat / bus and pay the place a visit.
You can find more great places from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

Enjoy the pictures.
