Totally Spoilt

24 July 2014: Mother Nature spoilt me on my birthday today with a gorgeous sunrise which was viewed from Mount Ainslie. My day was topped off with a glorious afternoon paddle on LBG. There wasn’t a ripple to be seen which allowed for perfect reflections to be captured. It doesn’t get any better than this!

In Total Balance

23 July 2014: Often the most amazing places are right on your doorstep…. We just need to open the door. The day begun with gorgeous golden tones to the east and finished off with beautiful blue reflections to the west and I have to say “it just doesn’t get any better than that!”

Wonderful Home Welcoming

21 July 2014: What a wonderful welcoming home tonight! I was watching the sky build all afternoon as we cruised our way today. As soon as we arrived home I quickly unpacked the car and hightailed my way down to LBG for 4pm to catch a stunning Canberra sunset. I hope you enjoy the photostory :)

Wild Delight

19 July 2014: The southerly was howling, the sea was huge and the coastline was taking massive hits which created some spectacular scenery. The Newcastle Ocean Baths were overflowing as the waves crashed over the back pushing a torrent of water flowing through to the Cowrie Hole. I was running around bare footed in shin deep water (and deeper at times) and at one stage I had to climb up on the railings to avoid one huge surge. I was having a blast, I brought back so many fond memories as kids (grommets) we would love it when the conditions were like this. The Bogey Hole was impressive as well as the waves blasted spray high into the sky on impact, I’ve definitely had an enjoyable day, I hope you enjoy to photo story.

Reflections of Home

18 July 2014: It’s always nice to come ‘home’ and reflect on the beautiful surrounds where I spent my youth. This was my playground as a child and I never cease to tire of walking Nobby’s Beach, The promenade around to Newcastle Beach past the Cowrie Hole and the famous Newcastle Ocean Baths. I always enjoy finishing off my morning with a coffee at Estabar Cafe, Newcastle Beach.
