Food is not my usual blog topic, but I couldn’t resist sharing these quick healthy treats with you. Today I had to take a dessert a friend’s house for lunch. This was an opportunity to spread the word about the wonderful air dried fruit my brother and his wife produce. For this recipe I used their airdried mango, kiwi fruit and papaya. The health benefit airdried fruit is that they don’t use sulphur dioxide in the drying process.
To the finely chopped dried fruit I also added shredded coconut. This was then mixed into,2 blocks of melted dark chocolate. I then spooned small haystacks onto a lined tray and topped with lime zest, chilli flakes and coarse sea salt before refrigerating for 30 minutes. This made 12 stacks. They transported really well.
I found the recipe in Ellie Bullen’s book The Global Vegan.
I am still trying to come up with a reason why this shovel is padlocked to the fence at Bar Beach. Maybe some big kids don’t want to share their sand toys.

I can always find a great door on a walk around Braidwood for Norm’s photo challenge . I have loitered outside this old church often but have never met the occupants. I am sure they would be interesting characters.
November’s theme for Jude’s Photo Challenge is Black and White.
I spied this garden and doorway down an alley while wandering around Braidwood’s main street today. I was originally captivated by the vibrant red of the door, completely missing the patterns and shadows bought out in the black and white version.

Ringlands Rainforest Track – Narooma 25 October 2020
Forest bathing or “Shinrin Yoku” is all about being in the presence of trees and incorporating gentle mindfulness exercises. I find forest bathing lowers my heart rate and blood pressure, reduces my stress levels as well as adding some good chi to my immune system.
The Ringland Bay rainforest track is an excellent short walk to get your senses back in tune with nature. The walk follows the shore of the Wagonga Inlet, it is not a loop walk so can be started at either the Shell Point or Flying Fox Bay end. The rainforest is located at the Flying Fox Bay end. This is also a dog-friendly walk.
After such a long drought, it’s wonderful to see the paddocks with so much feed for our speckle cattle. My grandsons still in school uniforms, are helping to round up these stragglers so the can join the main herd.
