On The Beach – Eumundi

The Beach

Day 73 – July 18th

Here I am on “The Beach” at the Millington estate, Eumundi. What a lucky fella I am. Thanks so much to the Millington’s for having me.

The Beach


I have always been fascinated by bamboo. I had a little bamboo garden as a kid but it really doesn’t grow very fast down south. Running bamboo seems to, at the best of times, crawl. I was excited to see my little patch had a stem nearly an inch in diameter and maybe 3m tall after years of careful tending.

Bamboo is distantly related to grass. Beneath the forest of bamboo leaves I can image being an ant in the grass.
