Woodfire warmth

TIME to stoke up the fire with collected driftwood, pine cones and branches found while rambling around Torquay.

As autumn shudders to a close, keeping my surf shack cosy means keeping the wood heater stoked up.

So every time I venture out in the Bombora (2000 station wagon) I carry an old bow-saw and cardboard box to put any windfalls into. They also supplement the red and yellow gum i buy from the local woodman.

There's something really great about burning driftwood too, with all the dried out salt making blue and green flames.

Roll on winter!
