A ghostly tale for Halloween…..has our beloved Grassy Island been inhabited by evil spirits?

…….Lord of the Flies William Golding

I opened my eyes and felt restless, needed to go exploring. The wind was blowing from the southwest but was high, which made it a little tricky to land the boat on some of my favourite islands.

I had difficulty in adding a link so please google Green Point for the amazing story..

Green Point is also a beachcomber’s paradise.

The sunsets here are  definitely a reason to be thankful.

Prehistoric rocks, driftwood, the ocean and amazing vistas….what’s not to like.
