Griffith's point Cambrian Dolerite
I had to get out of the house and get some fresh air away from my current exam preparation pile of books.
I had a flick through, David Leaman's Step into History in Tasmania Reserves (a really hand book if you're in to Tassie geology) to find some new rocks to look at that weren't to far away.
The result; an hour wandering around the Cambrian Dolerite of Griffith's Point out at Narawantapu National Park, this Dolerite is about 450 Million years older the the regular Tassie dolerite, it weathers differently, has a quite a different look to it and I found a nice little out crop with some really large crystals visible (I must remember to add a scale for reference).
The scenery was nice too.
The Wood & the trees
I'm not particularly scared of snakes, but I'd rather not have a resident snake in my garden. So when we repeatedly saw this little copperhead sunning itself beside the driveway, we decided it would be good idea to have it relocated.
A Day on the Mat
Last weekend when most of Australia was setting up the lounge to watch the AFL grandfinal, most of our Karate Club were gathered for the annual club comp and prize giving. Fortunately it was all finished in time for the footy devoted to watch the Tassie Hawks take the premiership. The atmosphere was great and my boys had a fun day on the mat.
