A very big thing in the creek

The maintenance crew was working its way up Styx Creek – not Styx Creek, the big canal, but the real Styx Creek, the original stream that runs under the Donald Street bridge towards Gregson Park and then on to its headwaters in Adamstown. I could hear them shouting and yahoo-ing in that blokey way, and their whipper-snippers screaming as they trimmed the grass along the top of the creek bank.

Meanwhile, back at their ute, the tide just kept on coming in.
