    We don’t normally associate the BVRT with emerald green – it’s more often a bit brown and dusty. An early start from Linville after the recent rains on Saturday was well rewarded.

    Feeling a bit stir crazy after all the stress of our bushfire evacuation over the weekend, so headed out just before dawn this morning for some BVRT therapy.
