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.
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.
Contrastingly we spent the rest of this day in a beautiful location, but we were all unable to shake the sadness and devastation we had witnessed on the drive down to Lime Bay State Reserve. Its a truly magnificent part of Australia.
I want to give a percentage of every piece of my Renewal Art Glass Series to the BlazeAid volunteers. I don’t quite know how to go about that yet, but I’ll learn. If you want to know more about what Blazeaid does, then click on the photographs above.
