Down the East Side

The Tamar River is a tidal river here in Launceston.  It's not a pretty river when the tide is out due to silt.
We went for a drive the other day, it was rather a cool morning after lots of rain so I made lunch and we took off for a drive, firstly down the eastern side then the part of the western side of the Tamar River.

These photos were taken with my phone and I'm very pleased with them.

    1. Thanks, I wouldn't have taken any photos if the tide hadn't been in..there is so much silt in some of the areas.

    1. Oh yes you would have seen the silt in full bloom..the tide bring so many things to life coming and going. I don't recall many people thinking about life in the silt, they just want the silt gone.
