Hindmarsh Island, South Australia Island magic

There is a large tall Norfolk Island Pine tree in my neighbour’s front yard and it is often home to many varieties of nesting birds, all at different levels of the tree.

The last couple of years a pair of Brown Goshawks (Raptor family) have used the tree to nest and raise their babies. They have returned again and built their nest right at the very top of the tree and are beautiful to watch.

Their first clutch doesn’t appear to have hatched and they built a second nest below the first and that has resulted in one baby Goshawk.

The last day of 2015 is hot. Temperatures reached 40C. Despite the state having Total Fire Bans in most districts the majority of Fireworks displays are going ahead.

This is the last sunrise on the channel for 2015.

Cheese piecesAt a local weekend market I visited recently there was a cheese stall and after a sampling I liked 2 of the cheeses so decided to treat myself as I hadn’t been near a specialist cheese outlet for some time. I saw the price of $19.95 on the cheese and you know I assumed it was per kg. The owner did say that it was 100g and yes I agreed and he cut me off a 100g slice from the block. I asked for a similar amount on the second cheese and that ended up being a chunk. It was at about that point I realised that the $19.95 price was per 100 grams. There was no way I could back out of the sale at that point as he had cut me off 2 pieces of cheese.

This is what you get for $36 (the plate is a small bread and butter plate btw)

I took multiple pics of the cheese to show the sizes because no matter which way you looked at them the pieces were small. Chunk of cheese

So this cheese worked out at $199.50 per kg.

This is the most expensive cheese I have ever bought or tasted for that matter.
