Water, water, everywhere . . . .

Deep in nearby woods the water from last night's heavy rain forms a magical pool.
It flows under a bridge . . . 
. . .  and continues as a stream surrounded by sword ferns.
Where the stream meets the roadway the water collects  . . . 
. . . and flows under the road via a culvert. This culvert is due to be replaced tomorrow by the highways crew.
More water flows down our driveway . . .
. . . to join the stream now flowing between the next property and our own.
The stream enters our yard . . .
. . . and pools in the low lying area where the small foot bridge . . .
. . .  is completely submerged.
The stream narrows to flow under the arched bridge . . .
. . . and runs rapidly through on the other side.
It flows under the third foot bridge . . 
. . . and courses through under blackberry vines.
At last it comes near its end . . 
 . . . and with a last rush . . .
. . . it meets and joins the ocean.
