Almost all the colour has disappeared from the landscape. We've had some roaring wind; I hear it keening above the house as I write this post. This afternoon we went for lunch to a restaurant on the Selkirk Waterway. It's part of the Gorge, a long, winding inlet off of Victoria's Inner Harbour, which I wrote about in last week's Mosaic Monday post.
Grey sky, grey water, grey wood. That seemed to be today's theme colour. We didn't walk for long. One of us didn't have a suitable jacket on and got pretty cold. (It wasn't me.)
This wooden tube, also seen in the mosaic above, from a different angle, is an early water pipe to provide running water to homes in the 1880s here in Victoria. Narrow boards, grooved to fit snugly, shaped by an expert cooper, carried water from a well to individual homes. Imagine the work that took. Amazing!
Thanks for all the well wishes for my back. I'm feeling much better - just have to take it easy for a few days until everything settles down again.
