Room with no Walls


Avoca Beach, Central Coast, NSW, Australia

I love sitting here, well actually, that’s not strictly true…I actually love sitting on a bench near this one, but it was in use…so this one is the next best one…in my humble opinion.
You’ll often find me sitting here, whilst out and about with my little one. I’ve usually got a lovely cup of coffee in hand…and for a little while, we just sit and watch…watch the waves roll in, people watch and more often than not, the local surfers catching waves.

The Colour Gwinnnn


 I woke up this morning to a lovely thunderstorm…and boy did it rain!

For a brief moment, the rain stopped and I went for a quick walk with my son through this little wood. You wouldn’t know that behind these trees is a main road. 

With the rainfall,everything was glistening – including cobwebs that were suspended from branches. 

I’m trying to teach my little son about colours and today, whilst I pointed at the grass and trees, I asked him what colour they were and with great enthusiasm, he announced “Gwinnnn”

Angel in the Clouds


Avoca Beach, Central Coast, NSW, Australia

After a difficult afternoon, I went for a walk on the beach and saw this beauty of an Angel in the clouds – wings and all. Has to be a positive sign!!

Waved On.


Avoca Beach, Central Coast, NSW, Australia 

The air temperature is slowly starting to cool in the early evening here. It’s refreshing, especially as the water temperature is still lovely and warm.

Perfect weather for a late afternoon stroll along the beach, barefoot to ground myself.

Patonga, Central Coast, NSW, Australia  

Today, I sat on a rock meditating whilst watching the clouds, over the water. It was a beautiful calming experience and one I need to do more often. I don’t make time to meditate -I need to change that.

Beauty on a Friday.


Today, I had a glorious morning with a beautiful friend who travelled from Sydney to see me. This beautiful bunch of gorgeous smelling roses are from her. How lucky I am. 

I made some (freshly picked from the garden) lemongrass tea and we sipped that from china teacups before we headed to a beautiful local cafe that overlooks the beach. 

I had for breakfast, a beautiful granola and vanilla bean yoghurt dish with a fruit salad on the side. So refreshing! Not to mention the delicious much needed coffee I had with it. 

We then headed to the beach with my little one, who played in the water with his bucket and spade.  I also welcomed the opportunity to dive under a couple of waves. So invigorating! 

Perfect Friday!

Avoca Beach, Central Coast, NSW Australia

I’m so lucky to call this place home. Australia is such a beautiful country with such a stunning coastline – a varied one at that. In my local area, there are calm gentle bays and beautiful long surf beaches, where the waves roll in all day long. 

I never ever take it for granted where we live.
