AT AITKEN HILL 2

I am still at Aitken Hill for my work development exercise. The past few weeks have been particularly hectic at work and my apologies to visitors here for not being as regular a visitor to your site as I would like to be. It's hard enough keeping up my blog posts for my blogs so something has to give.

The photos today highlight some of the water features on the grounds of this enormous conference centre (see yesterday's post for more details!). On Australian farms, a dam is an artificial pond or reservoir where rain or spring water is collected for storage and for use in irrigation or for animals to drink from. Very often of course another purpose is a purely decorative one!

This post is part of the Water World Wednesday meme,
and also part of the Outdoor Wednesday meme,
and also part of the Nature Footsteps Waters meme.

  4. Such a beautiful place, Nick, and your photos are superb! A wonderful spring day it is indeed! It surely looks better than the view from my window this morning!!! Rain, rain, and more rain!! But considering the horror on the east coast I surely shouldn't be whining about a little Fall rain! Hope your week is going well!!
