Thursday was for planting as well, in the Sherwood Nature Reserve, planting a tree bed to disguise a toilet and a BBQ shelter. Donny and I got off lightly by being put on watering duty while everyone else pushed wheelbarrows full of mulch back and forth. After that planting we went up on a walk through the rainforest to a waterfall at a cliff; due to recent drought the waterfall was barely a trickle, but still beautiful.
Friday was our last day at the house, sadly, as we packed up and went through one more half day of lazy weeding. Donny and I decided that we "couldn't find" any more lantana and took a long break on a log in the forest, out of sight from the main trail. Then all five of us were hustled off to a surf club in the closest town to have a cold shower before we had to appear at a fancy to-do in honour of some conservation bigwigs. We were a popular topic of conservation, not for our determined efforts at conserving the bush-but for our collection of leg scratches and impressive bug bites.
