Below is a map advertising a biking tour in the Bifuka end of the island.
The Japanese garden is north (left) of the old railway station that is now washrooms. An artist from there came to paint this background of a special private spot in the hills over there.
The owls are a symbol of Bifuka, Japan so these were installed by their area in the Railway Park.
As I wander the streets and back alleys I am delighted that there are still flowers bravely blooming, even though most folk have stopped dead-heading and weeding. Here is a barrel in front of the Post Office and
one in front of the museum that was built by great uncle Melville as a Customs office
but then later was a hardware store, and now is the area's museum. A century has gone by and then I
spotted this old taxi in front of one of the older homes that has a huge wood pile. What a lot of changes we have seen in our lifetimes.
