What does renewal look like?

We were with one of my bestest old friends who was visiting her childhood holiday spot!

It was meant to be a spectacular drive;  a pretty drive down memory lane; through quaint townships that sit prettily on the edge of Frederick Henry Bay, Tasmania.

It had been unreasonably hot!  Ridiculously hot!   Unfortunately we were to witness the aftermath of the horrid fires that swept through the little town of Dunalley.  bushfire2013map600

The black and charcoal vistas, still smelling the soot shocked us.  We watched as the folks of the township kicked over the rubble that was a home, a business, a shed, a meeting place.

I’ll share a couple of pictures here just to show you the desolation that such fires leave behind.  You can’t smell it, you can only see it here.  I chose not to include any pictures of homes and buildings that were lost.
