As Dad said about Boat-building: the first step is the hardest.

I have been meaning to begin this sand-dune restoration project for a number of years, and now – at last – I have taken the first step.

The sand-dune in question stretches north of our Boatshed, and is covered with aggressive plants which do not belong: Acacia saligna, Acacia cyclops, Olive, Coastal Teatree etc. I will replace them with  local species, in the usual Boatshed fashion: bit by bit.

One hundred years may or may not be time enough. We shall see….
