Any pilot will tell you that there`s never enough time available to spend in the air... And this July the weather was not conducive to bush pilot antics. August was better...
Brian did manage to squeak in some air-time... Every time he goes aloft, he takes his camera along, and brings us back great photos.
This is a bird`s eye view of Bondi... You can see the Point we swim to every Thursday on the right side of the curve of the bay. The Island, 1.6 km. away at top of photo. Our back fields where the Disc Golf course, the horses` cross country fences and the wild turkeys and deer like to hang out. You can see how shallow the bay is -- that submerged ring of shallow sand is how we got our name. Grandfather Joseph Tapley, when he settled here in 1905, long before the dam at Baysville jacked up the water levels about 5`, named the farm for the famous beach at Sydney. From this height, you can easily see why.
Because we developed from that farmstead beginning, our cottages have been widely spaced on the property, giving us so much extra room and giving each cottage so much extra privacy. We still maintain that for great getaways, while it is important for everyone to be able to `get together`, it`s just as important for everyone to be able to `get apart`.
You can even spot the horses, out in the pasture. Bailey the gray is the one who shows up easiest!
Great picture, Brian!
