Morning – B&W

Morning – B&W

I’m still experimenting with looking at the world in black and white. Sunrises and sunsets depend on colour for their breathtaking beauty – and so I decided to find the beauty without the colour. Although, in saying that, I think this one works as it was very early and overcast, so not too much colour around.

Easter in Australia

Easter in Australia

2 teenage girls, 3 dogs, 5 boys between seven and (nearly) eleven, nine adults, enough food to feed an army in gourmet style, enough beer and wine to allow for the odd glass or two, and a beautiful beach all equal a great Easter weekend camping. The campfire was a constant, relaxation the order of the day. Long walks on the beach, fishing, abalone diving, oyster gathering, swimming, sandcastle construction, board and card games.  And of course – the Easter Bunny!!

Easter can be the last lovely weekend of summer, or the first chilly weekend of autumn, and this one was a mix. A couple of very chilly mornings, glorious afternoons, and nights where the fire beckoned. And naturally, the final day – pack up and leave – was the best, most glorious summer day imaginable. Always.  Friends had brought an old caravan and constructed a shed on this bit of remote beach that allowed us to store food, and change in peace. They have a truly Australian open door policy – welcome to all. If you look for symbolism at Easter – this welcome is it, and it lasts all year.
