Garfield again

Caro's picture of the crew -  Ros  and Josh, Flynn, Joanne and
Rodney. Me, naughtily riding  withiout a  helmet. Never,
ever  do  this!
In July we were out in the bush near Castlemaine with Win News, spruiking the State Disability Plan, with the stunning visuals of the Garfield Wheel Foundations as a backdrop.

On Sunday we went back there. The occasion was my looming 65th birthday and the cast was therefore very family-based.
In front of the imposing foundations that
once bore the axel of the water wheel
                                                                                          We learned a lot of mining history as the sturdy rock-built foundations used to support the axel of a 20m diameter water wheel that powered an ore-crushing machine.

We also learned about the Flynn Effect - the persistent increase in IQ test scores. Very apt as son Flynn was the rear sherpa for the whole outing!
