FSO: Layers

A walk on the beach with the water engineer is invariably a lesson in Stratum, a layer of rock or soil with internally consistent characteristics. Landslides occur when the layers are of different consistently.

Another engineering lesson, a retaining wall, I won't want to live just beside the beach no matter how strong the retaining wall is. Besides, in New Zealand, the beach belongs to the public. Any Tom, Dick and Harry can walk right up to your property to see how the other half lives, and perhaps plot a Burglary or robbery.
Or you may face landslides. Right now, we are having a lot of rain, and the town Of nelson is declared an emergency area.

My favourite topic, be green. My layer is a free range hen and lays eggs taht get to become chicks in the open.

Beautiful photos, Ann! No two stones look like eachother.
Visa versa is latin, I think.
I never go to Australia in our winter, for the temperature overthere is for me unbearable. I remember this from my childhood in Indonesia, i was always sick in December. I am a real North-European person. I don't like the heat. I am going to visit my daughter in May or June, when she has her new baby!
Have a great week, Ann!
