Looking northwest to Cape St Albans, Kangaroo Island

Two months into a very different life perched on the eastern end of Kangaroo Island. Day by day we are drawn closer to what's happening around us. And not just the views across Backstairs Passage, or the sudden sightings of wildlife. What seems to be happening is like a sixth sense. How the different waves sound on either side of the Cape. The draw and heave of the tides. Varied scents and textures in the sea breezes. The messaging of the clouds. The shape of waves on Scraper Shoal.  Patterns of movement by kangaroo mobs, galah flocks, finch families and goanna young. Day by day the rhythm of the place grows within.
