Trampled Rose

Recently a central Coast icon was sadly demolished. The Castle Rose was a mysterious monument in my local area, in the suburb Buff Point. The castle was a strange and beautiful anomaly amongst suburbia, easily one of the most interesting buildings on the coast. Known by locals through the stuff of folklore, the castle was attributed to ambitious creator Bill Muncke.

Legend had it that Bill was constructing a castle for his queen, his wife, bringing materials over across Tuggerah lake. Building started in the late 1940’s. Due to an injury he was unable to continue the building and his wife died before the castle was ever finished. Perhaps then losing the steam to continue on it the castle was sold in the late 70’s.

Beginning of a New Term

This weeks starts the new term. Lessons start up again, new fresh-page notebooks and some fun ideas that I anticipate trying out. This dark rainy weather makes it particularly easy to stay in and organise folders and tidy up.

Over the course of preparation i’ve burnt out pretty much all of my nice candles trying to make an ambience of my work space, but I thought I share a little music that has been beautifying the room over the past week or so…

In other news, I’ve recently started volunteering at Norah Head lighthouse. Tours of the building run daily until 1.30pm
