Bushland, wildlife, community carers and the top notch Sirromet winery up the road – a restorative balm in contrast with the global, national, state and regional issues plaguing life in January 2022. I didn’t realise how much I needed this peaceful locale until my early morning wakeup call from the boxer dogs I am house-sitting, the fresh shower and the short walk reclaiming control over body and mind – tomorrow will be a longer and wider exploration of this part of the Redlands in South-East Queensland to keep the momentum going.
The daily visits from native birds and wallabies is good for the soul……. and playing with photos is fun!
Kind householders in this Sanctuary Drive enclave ensure the safety of the wildlife and healthy ecosystems. How could you not engage in this community care if you live at an adress like SugarGlider Court or Brushbox Court.
Mt Cotton was once a sleepy farming community, but is sleepy no longer. However, s aome of the farms remain and other commercial enterprises have come and a Village Centre now exists to cater for the survival needs of those who have made this haven a home…..but the rural feel remains.
Walking gives you the chance to see the small, and often quirky – I hope Teddy enjoys his swing, and those who are familiar with Street Libraries will be happy to see this festive offering. I will add something to its eclectic mix when I stroll out in a different direction tomorrow – and I know it will energise me for the working week ahead.
Thank you to the Baird family for sharing this sanctuary with me.
