Sydney-based friends friends, Kim and Jenny, spent some time here over the Easter period. Although the new guest room is still not finished, we did have lunch on the balcony up there so already the space is proving to be a pleasant addition to The Drip experience. Next time Kim and Jenny are here, hopefully they won't need to sleep in the Wine Cellar.
Kim's many years of experience in his work with NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service provided some great environmental management ideas, such as how we might slow the flow of water down the watercourses, retaining more water in the higher parts of the valley. Kim also left a copy of "Back from the Brink. How Australia's landscape can be saved" by Peter Andrews for the Library here. Inspiring and useful stuff!
