Diving Into Summer (Almost)

Spring forward a few months, and it's officially summer. However, with days like today, it feels like it's popped in for a sneaky visit.

A trip to Tasmania didn't disappoint.  Plenty of natural beauty, including this magical fog.

Going Home

Going home to visit the folks, the cousins, the aunties and uncles. It's going to be freezing.

Summer In Winter

Although it's winter, we've had three beautiful days of sunshine. The whales are migrating north, everyday we see them passing by our house.

Waiting For A Storm

Looking over to Cape Byron, we got soaked.

Sunday Silhouttes

An afternoon at the beach resulted in some pretty cool photographs.  The silhouettes of my friend (top) and the guy searching for crabs (bottom) go nicely together.

I'm experimenting with cellophane over the flash/lens of my camera, and the results are pleasing...

Melbourne Delights

I love the simplicity of these patterns. So pretty. So classic. The tiles are similar to the (bottom) image in the post below, no?

A Parisian Cafe

Eat. Drink. Sew. I wish Byron had a cafe similar to Sweat Shop, Paris. I love the hues in these photographs, and the patterns are also interesting.

Look Up...

Always with my head in the clouds. Or looking up towards them. I love the patterns leaves make against the sky. Here are some pictures from my afternoon walk. It's getting dark so early now.

Mother's Garden

There are many delights in my mother's garden. Her vegetable patch could feed an army, and there  are enough flowers to supply a florist for an entire year. I love it when the raspberries are in season, we eat them fresh for dessert. Her chutney made from home-grown tomatoes isn't bad either.

Afternoon Walk

Don't you think iPhones are getting better by the second? This photo application is such fun as it takes the best shots... a must- have accessory for an afternoon walk.

I have been tagged by my cousin Catherine from Little Glowing Lights to share six things about myself...

1. Living in Byron, a student, originally from the Apple Isle.
2. I love riding my old blue bike everywhere... it's good for fitness and for our lovely environment. I
3. Food - eating it, cooking it, reading about it... I love food!
4. Collecting shells and pebbles from the beach. We find them all over the house and in old winter pockets!
5. Swinging  in my hammock on a nice sunny afternoon.
6. Traveling to warm, relaxing and secluded beaches.

Harvest Cafe

Harvest Cafe, nestled in the Byron Hinterland, is the perfect place for breakfast or a long lazy lunch. Local produce, yummy coffee and good company. X

Country Antiques

Country Antiques was a lucky find, however with a sign out the front of the shop exclaiming  'Dead peoples' stuff sold here',  it was hard to miss. Window frames, dining tables, biscuit tins, milk bottles... and a set of chairs for $6000! We had lots of fun in this beautiful shop!

Coastal Homes.

I love day adventures and the unique buildings found along the way. They are all so different and representative of a culture or family. Click on the above mosaic for a closer look...

Polaroid Fun.

I am a huge fan of Polaroids. They are fun and there is something very raw and organic about them. Living in Byron Bay, we spend a lot of time by the sea or floating up and down the coast looking for new and exciting places, so it is a bonus to capture these moments with such rare material. The picture on the left is the beach out the front of our place. You can view some of my other Polaroids on Byron Bay Live Blog.

One Cold Front Last Winter

The sea is best when it is dark and gloomy. It's not all about fun in the sun. This particular cold front was responsible for flooding the entire East Coast of Australia, and by coincidence, the weather is equally wild today - a perfect introduction to the cooler months!

The Organic Garden

These little snippets were taken in a small community garden in Western Australia. The garden was located in the small rural town of Margaret River where there is lots of surf, wine and hidden coastal treasures. Click on the above mosaic for a closer look...

A Few Snippets From The West. My First Post.

Photos from my old backyard. I love the ocean and all its different moods. These photos were taken on the same day, a very warm summer's day in Western Australia.
