A colourful sunset

This mornings sunrise was spectacular but I didn't take any photos as I was on a daily walk with my friend Rose at 5:45am and no camera.

We oohed and aahed at the amazing colours reflected in the sky, on the water and even on the trees, Philip Island and Mount Pitt and Mount Bates. Yes we can see it all from the top of my hill.

This evening I saw the sky begin to colour up and I knew I had to grab my camera. I then saw amazing colours in the backyard over the water (North East, usually spectacular sunrises) so I took some photos here before running out into the front yard, barefoot and fresh from the shower I kept running up the road to keep capturing the amazing colours all around.

I trod on a few thistle plants in the bicentennial reserve across the road over looking ball bay (South West). My feet were freezing by this stage but I am glad I kept going so I could get these photos.

You're Welcome :)

Going out for Breakfast

Sunday morning after a really busy week at the Norfolk Island Theatre Festival.
We wanted to do something special for breakfast but are still without a table on our new deck until the roof goes on... sometime before Christmas hopefully!

Instead of buying breaky at a local café (as we have been to a few this week) Brandt suggested taking a bit of toast each down the hill to Ball bay.

He then got a call to help take the tent down from a wedding that I photographed yesterday, so we changed plans to go to Kingston. The toast wasn't such a good idea then, but an esky full of cereals, coffee and juices was just the ticket. I even found an emergency box of Coco Pops to treat the kids.

We had the whole beach front to ourselves (no wind for once) and although a bit overcast, it was still a very pleasant morning.

Parked on the headland just next to the salthouse, it was a great place to view of the massive waves and a fantastic venue for climbing the Norfolk Island pine trees as well as beachcombing on Middle beach.
 Peri-Peri loved it too.
