Me and my Ute


I mowed the airstrip the other day with the little Daihatsu Ute and a tow behind mower. Airstrip is a bit of a stretch. It is a relatively flat area, which has been used in the past as an airstrip but us primarily a wallaby feeding ground these days.


Then today, we had a phone call from someone who wanted to land here. We couldn’t authorize it and advised them to contact Tasmania Parks and Wildlife. We never heard anything but a small plane buzzed us today. It circled twice and gave us a wing tilt, then left.

I’ve been pulling sea spurge, an invasive plant, with the weedies who are here working. Yesterday we worked our way up a steep hill. It was sunny and hot so we had a nice swim before lunch in East Cove. Lovely.

Yesterday’s sunset was outstanding.


Even on reflection.

  1. I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying your wonderful blogposts. I’d like to know more about how you ended up doing such interesting things. I am also from NY (born in Bronx, teenager in long island) and I am living in Illinois. But I think a remote island out in yenna would be way more interesting. Thanks so much for sharing your adventures.


    • Thank you. Nothing beats a remote island! I love these adventures and found a kindred spirit. My kids say, I come up with a crazy idea and Tim says, sounds great. Let’s do it. And here we are.
