Seas and Trees: A Week in Pictures

Seas and Trees: A Week in Pictures

Last week there was no writing. No posts about rubbish bins, or plastic, or having too much stuff. Instead, I was on holidays, journeying through some of the National Parks and other beautiful places that Western Australia has to offer. There is so much natural beauty, amazing scenery and incredible wildlife here to experience.

Sometimes we just need to get out there and remind ourselves that the world truly is an amazing, beautiful, wonderful place. We’re pretty lucky, living on a planet like ours, and taking time out to appreciate just how awe-inspiring it really is really re-ignites my commitment to working to protect it.

I thought I’d share a few of the pics I took in the last week with you. I hope they inspire you as much as they inspired me…the earth is a beautiful place, and worth looking after : )

  1. Oh my goodness that tree in Stokes National park, I want to touch it. How different these places must feel to you having grown up in the UK. The earth deserves to be saved! Thank you for sharing these pictures I love seeing the rest of the world even when I can’t travel there myself.

    • I love the trees in Western Australia : ) It is a very different landscape here, but there is a huge amount of biodiversity so I don’t think you’d ever stop seeing new things! The thing I find strangest compared to the UK is that there is no freezing winter when the trees lose their leaves and everything goes into hibernation. I miss the start of spring after the long cold winter…I guess that’s what’s starting to happen for you now?

    • Hi Vreni, thanks for your comment! Yes, I noticed that too – the beaches and sea was completely trash-free. Sadly some of the car parks nearby were not – I rescued a few bits of plastic blowing around that would have no doubt ended up in the sea : /

      Yes, I want to be back there too. Although I have a beautiful tree in front of my window so it’s not so bad…!

  2. Gorgeous especially the beach! My Aussie husband and I recently learned about a nursery here in the States near us where we can get bottle brush and are so excited :) I planted a snow gum for him the other day (one of the few eucs that will survive in our climate) so we’ve got a bit of Oz already :)

    • I used to have a bottle brush in the UK, it used to survive the winters but it was a shrub rather than a tree – they get so big here! Until I came here I thought there was only one type of bottle brush, but there seem to be hundreds! So much colour and so much fun! Good like with you little Australia patch! How big do you think the snow gum will grow to be?
