Between about 1997 and 2014 I lived on Ruxton Island. It is unserviced, which just means that if you want or need something, then you had better do it for yourself. I started with an untouched lot on the waterfront which faced south west, about as ideal as you could get for a number of reasons, not the least of which was the incredible sunsets.. So here I will try and show you some of the progress that was made during those years once I had a cabin built to keep the rain off my head! I had neither a computer or digital camera until the end of 2008, so if you are wondering how I got ahead so quickly, it was simply because I had been there for 10 years already. The first two photos are approaching the entrance gate from the south end. The remainder are taken once you are inside the Japanese garden area. Hmm, I just noticed that other small bridge over the dry stream bed, I had forgotten about that one!
