Last Day of Spring
Today is the last day of Spring, although it has actually felt like Summer for a while now (excluding last week, which was just awful weather wise).
I am so looking forward to Summer and all that it brings. People, in my humble opinion seem to be happier, more easy-going and just, well…more at peace.
There were so many people jogging along the beach this morning, most were kind enough to go behind me and not right in front of me as I was taking my photographs (although some do this and I sometimes think, I know that I don’t have the right of way or anything, but would it really be that difficult just to side-step me?) There’s one man who every single day does this – he walks right in front of me, even if I’m right on the waters edge barefoot, he will literally go through the water (in trainers I hasten to add), instead of going behind me and he never ever acknowledges me – most other people who I say good morning to – (I usually do this) they will reply with a good morning back to me, this guy however, he doesn’t want to know. Perhaps it’s because he’s so focused on what he’s doing, I don’t know. It’s now kind of become my mission to try to get some sort of acknowledgement from him – even if it’s “stop saying good morning to me lady!” I think if he said that to me, the next morning I’d say good evening, just to confuse him! ;)
Aaahhhh….I think this photo pretty much speaks for itself. How can a day get better than this? I literally ran across to the beach this morning to watch the sunrise – the clouds were so pretty, as they were lit up by the beautiful sun. I wish all of my day was like this!!
Manly Beach, Sydney, NSW, Australia
I’m Not the Only One to Watch the Sun
It’s just before 6:00am, getting ready for another working week. So pleased that I was able to see the sunrise this morning – it sets me up for a good week, well in my eyes it does anyway.
It seems that today, I wasn’t the only one to enjoy the sunrise.
Trio of Stars
Today, I went to one of my favourite places to go and hide away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – a place called Clontarf, which is on Sydney Harbour. By late afternoon, the tide had changed and the wind picked up, bringing with it these beautiful star fish. Several of them actually came on to the beach, so I picked them up and placed them further out in to the water, trying to stop them from drying out in the sun. There were hundreds of them, never seen so many starfish in all my life. i chose this photo, because I liked the simplicity.
A Sight for Sore Eyes
As you would know from my previous post, we have had nothing but grey sky for a week now, even this morning – the heavens had opened yet again.
Today, we travelled up to Avoca Beach (where we are going to be moving to), to look at the house again (exciting stuff!) and to well…explore the area a little. In Sydney it was pouring down, by the time we got to Avoca Beach (which took about an hour and a half), blue sky was there to greet us. That’s a good sign I think.
After we viewed the house, we stopped for lunch and then sat on a rock and watched the local surfers, as there were some pretty amazing waves – and some of the best surfing I’ve ever seen, in person.
This photograph was taken very close to where the surfers were. The power of the water was incredible.
I know that when we move here, which is most probably going to be in January, there is going to be pl-e-n-ty for me to photograph. I felt soooo in my element today and quite honestly, really really happy!
Anyway, enough of my ramblings, I hope you enjoy this photo – as much as I enjoyed watching the waves crash on to the rocks.
Cloudiest week in more than a year
I heard on the news today – that since last Sunday, Sydneysiders have only seen 45 minutes of sunshine, making it the cloudiest week in more than a year!
For those who have followed my blog for a while, you will know how much I love seeing the sun – sunrises, sunsets, I honestly feel that the weather has penetrated my soul this week. I am over the grey skies! The weather forecast is better for Sunday, so hopefully, I will see some blue sky!
