Over the past few days, we've had a lot of time to further survey the damage caused by the fire. Our poor trampoline is 'toast', as well as a few other items around the yard.
But the interesting thing was my deck chair. I went to look for it, thinking it would be great to take it up to sit by the river, but all I found was old, metal bars. And then I realised. The deck chairs, which were on the verandah, had caught on fire, and their canvasses were destroyed. But the remarkable thing was that they were leaning up against the wooden cubby house, and right next to an old wooden cupboard, which is more than past its time, and ready to be split up for firewood.
In this photo, you can also see our dining room window - which gives you an indication of just how close we came to losing the house:
Our yard is littered with amazing sights like this; someone was most definitely watching over us!
