Big River

Big River is one of the most magical places I know.
The stately, wide river meanders through pretty meadows, then creates its own labyrinth of mangrove swamps, before expanding and emptying into the sea just here.
In the summer (if you pick your tides right) it's an easy swim down the current to the deserted beach on the other side, and then to 'Treasure Island', where you even find the rusty anchor of a long-gone ship.

Instead of a swim, this evening we took a walk through the 'Tiger Forest' ...

... gazed down into the 'Endless Abyss' ...

... chased Boo all the way down green headland hills ...

... played in the park, and examined the 'Treasures of the Deep'.

Who says life isn't as exciting as a storybook?
