Rioter Ben_Dover sent this beauty in.

I paid a visit to the arboretum the other day, as there was a lovely sky and I wanted to shoot some cloud shots. (attached.) I drove to the highest point and parked up there, taking my new poopies* for their walk there was rather nice. Now, before the arboretum was constructed I used to take the mutts up there for a walk. I would entrance via the cork forest, and make my way up the hill to the seats under the cedars at the top. On the way there was an old wooden sign pointing to “Dairy Farmers Lookout”, so I have always called that hill just that “Dairy Farmers Lookout”. But all the signs now show it as “Dairy Farmers Hill”, why the change I wonder?

*poopies; small hairy poo producing creatures.

Well, without an apostrophe of possession, Dairy Farmers Lookout sounds like a threat…

*poopies; small hairy poo producing creatures.

You have creatures which produce small hairy poo? There’s probably a market for that … somewhere …

Either way, certainly a better name than its close neighbour, Misery Hill! Maybe they should rename that one before building a new suburb on/around it….? 🙂

Maybe the hill is called Dairy Farmers Hill, and the lookout you historically visited was located on that hill?

I do every time I buy that $2 milk.
