There was a big tide this evening and I was eager to see just how much of Garden Island became submerged.
From my limited vantage it was really hard to tell. If I were to offer a guess I’d say two thirds of the swampy landmass was underwater.
Garden Island continues to intrigue, delight and inspire me. So beautiful and so wild a place so close to home is like a secret garden oblivious to its industrial boundary of shipping wharfs, power stations and shipyards.
So inviting was the view of this garden in flood that I’m inspired to paddle in here in a kayak and to experience this close up.
