Back when people still lived in this forest


Let's continue the previous two posts and stay in Australia's Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden.
Here's daughter Naomi surveying the trails before she and I set out into the wild bush country.
You can click a few times and enlarge the photo to see the topography.

The maps says that "Guringai was the language of the people who first inhabited this area."

In many locations in and around Sydney, where I was visiting,  I saw statements like the one above:
Acknowledgement of Country
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land, the Guringai people on whose land we now stand,  we pay our respects to Elders past and present. 
(Linking this M is for Map post to ABC Wednesday.)

I like those gumtrees and this one you took a photo of is very beautiful and has an interesting shape.
So you are still in Australia?
Have a great weekend, Shabbat Shalom!

123 hectares, that's quite a garden Dina :) Good to know you enjoy your trips to Australia, of course having your fami!y here is a huge drawcard, it's not a bad place to live :) I loved hearing Sylvia's memories this morning also, people really pulled together back then.
