Week Away

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Louise with the The Storyteller’s Abode. Thank you Louise!

So where do you think you lost it?

I don’t know, if I knew that, I would go back and get it.

Think someone nicked it?

I don’t see how, it’s been in my bag all day.

What are we gonna tell the kids?

Let’s not tell them. The room is paid for; we have got enough in your wallet for food, and the beach is free. Let just enjoy our week away and worry about it when we get home.

Do you have to tell the banks and card companies?

No, I left all the cards at home so we couldn’t overspend, except…


Except the card which grandpa gave me to spend while we are away.

They both laughed. Poor grandpa had not been with it lately. He gave them his old blockbuster card by mistake.

Beach sketches

The Sydney Sketch Group is going through the whole Alphabet this year, sketching in suburbs of Sydney. This week it was B for Balmoral. These are my 2 watercolours, naive style, from the day. I got a bit sunburnt on the day and am feeling the effects of it still a few days after.

Balmoral Beach

I spent a great day on Sunday, sketching at Balmoral beach. I took these images on my Samsung phone. A perfect Summer’s day in Sydney.20160207_12231720160207_12232120160207_12300420160207_123023

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Early Bird.”

I love to get up early to capture the sunrise. I did so again today but enjoyed life waking through my eyes instead of the lens. I held a cup of coffee instead of a canon.

Here are some I took the other week on Coogee beach though. enjoy.IMG_3942 IMG_3960

More images from Sculptures by the Sea

Sculptures by the Sea is an annual event held in Sydney Australia where sculptors are invited to exhibit their pieces along the clifftop walk between the iconic Bondi Beach and Tamarama beach, with others actually on Tamarama beach and in the park surrounding.

Here is a small selection of the 240 photos I took of some of the sculptures lining the clifftop.
