Summer days drifting away

Yesterday was full and wonderful. All the days have been this week. A trip to the beach. A drive along the beautiful Macleay River to South West Rocks where the road follows the bends of water along huge old frangipani and Moreton bay fig trees. There are road side stalls to grab fresh veggies as you go, old towns standing as they once did with faded and peeling paint and ice-cold schooners in their pubs. A visit to a neighbours farm to feed baby goats. Veggie gardens filled to the brim with summer goodness. A simple new year dinner with family. An early(ish) night.

    OMG – the Smithtown Hall? Get out of here … I would have never expected to see a photo if the Smithtown Hall on your blog !! How’s this ….. I’ve actially been in the Hall. I ran a couple of farmer workshops there a few years ago.
    So lovely to see the North Coast featured on your blog. It’s kind of special up here. The Macleay Coast is one ofy favourite stretches of coastline too.

    we love south west rocks, my hubby and I ventured there pre kids and marriage with our now 14 year old staffy…. We did go back when our 9 year old was about 18 months old. Such a beautiful spot. You brought back some great memories x Happy holidays

  4. Happy new year, chicca. Looking good! x

  5. Happy New Year! Your photos are exquisite. I’d love to be able to capture moments like you do. Maybe that should be something to add to my list of goals for 2014…
