rising water and dragon fruit

The school year in the Northern Territory begins tomorrow and I suspect the successful completion of janathon challenge will come under attack. Over the past few weeks I have become more familiar with the Casuarina Reserve which is almost my front yard. Today for the very first time I visited Buffalo Creek as a detour on my bike ride. It is a popular fishing spot but unfortunately rain leads to contamination of the creek from overflow from the nearby sewerage ponds. What were the planners thinking?

On the way home I noticed the creek, about 200m from my front door was running out vigorously and had a lot more water in it than normal due to the monsoonal fronts that have been visiting us over the past month.

Normally the water is still at low tide and tends to run in and out sedately for the most part. This was a definite rush and may lead to minor flooding if the rains continue.

I am sure how effective my food choices are but I am maintaining the diary and will evaluate after a couple of weeks.

Tonight I had a dragon fruit for dessert. The dragon fruit not only has a magnificent name, it looks wonderful and, with lime juice drizzled over it, tastes wonderful as well.
