Cruising in Newcastle

17 July 2013: It was so nice to be home and have another beautiful cruise on Newcastle Harbour. Yet again I had 6am start and I‘m so happy that I did as the early morning light refraction was brilliant. It’s so nice to be out on the water and watch the sun pop each day, I’m so lucky to be able to experience it.

6.18am: The Shimmy Sunrise - Newcastle. The light refraction was amazing. This is 40 minutes before the scheduled sunrise.... Unreal!

Silhouette Sunrise

3 June 2013: What a stunning silhouette sunrise this morning. I really didn’t expect to be paddling amongst crystal clear skies and sub zero temperatures after the rainy weekend that we just had. I can tell that we are definitely in winter now as my finger and toes are still thawing out from this morning’s frosty float on Lake Burley Griffin. I always return back so calm and peaceful after a paddle into the wetlands. How could you not when there are so many stunning silhouette reflections. I hope that you enjoy the photos.

Wednesday Wow Factor

22 May 2013: WOW, this is a huge photo story today. The title for this morning’s paddle on Lake Burley Griffin definitely has to be WWF, the ”Wednesday WOW Factor”. I know that I keep saying it but what a transformation. The colours this morning were wild and I wasn’t the only one out there to enjoy it. The Australian girls junior sculls rowing team went through their paces on a chilly Canberra morning, the RAAF Balloon was hovering high in the sky and I was lucky enough to be paid a visit by the LBG pelicans. I just love starting my day like this!

At this point I know it is going to be a wonderful start to the day

Sand between my toes

18 May 2013: We’ve had a beautiful day hanging out pelicans and walking stunning beaches that stretch for miles. Today’s photo blog is just a brief portion of what this truly stunning section of the Illawarra coast has to offer. It’s such a shame that we have only two days here, but it’s better to experience a little of a lot, rather than nothing at all.

The afternoon was of to  a great start as I was Photo bombed  @ Greenwell Point

Photobombing pelicans  @ Greenwell Point was a great way to start the afternoon
