Skywatch!


It's been a decade at least since I last participated in Skywatch Friday.   The sky around here is so well sky-like of late that it's a bit hard not to share.

To see what the sky is doing in other parts of the world click here.

Take a picture of a flower.


"Take a picture of a flower" was the challenge.   A flower for crying out loud!   So I went outside and got lucky.

Number Eight!


There's one in every crowd!  
Thanks to one eagle-eyed person who actually counted my ten photos, and questioned whether I'd been cheating - here is number eight of "ten photos from my bathroom" just to prove that I didn't cheat, I just got too lazy to post.

There's a bit of that going round I suspect.

Another Plague


We have a plague of butterflies at the moment, and a shortage of clouds.

The Locked in Challenge ~ 10 photos of my bathroom ~ Day 10


"Try to get yourself in the picture - without showing your camera".   Those are tears of joy that the the challenge is over and we can once again commence observing life outside.

What have I learned from all this?  Well the rubbish tin lid needs a polish for starters.

Flirting with danger.

Not having a straight bathmat is a capital crime in our house!

The Locked in Challenge 10 photos of my bathroom Day 7

Seven. If this is a grind for you, imagine how I feel!
One of these bottles is marked "shampoo" the other "conditioner". They sit in the corner of our shower floor. I have no idea what they are for.  :D

Isolation in plain sight.

We interrupt the bathroom challenge to prove that we aren't locked in.   Walking for exercise is allowed in your local area, which for us means a gentle stroll on the sand, but so many people are driving to what would normally be a vacant beach mid-week that new rules are imminent!

More Bathroom tomorrow.

The Locked in Challenge - 10 photos of my bathroom in 10 days.


It's not as though we are really that locked in, I mean the beach is still a short walk away and we are allowed to exercise whenever we want, as long as we are alone or with one other person who lives in our household, but when someone issues a challenge....

I'm not doing myself any favours by staring off with the easy ones, but if I run out of inspiration I can come back in a few days and change the title to "four photos in four" days I suppose!

Beaches Closed

The beach is closed, but the water temperature is already down to 23°C so who'd want to swim in that?  There are so few people about that the lifeguard hasn't changed the notice in three days.

The little white spec on the horizon tells another story, it is the cruise ship "Wind Spirit", which along with the "Carnival Spirit", "Sea Princess" and "Pacific Dawn" are drifting or anchored not far from shore, apparently homeless.   

Strange times.

Surf Lifesaving School


"Nippers" is the name given to the smallest of the Surf Life Saving Fraternity - every summer weekend hoards of them arrive at Surf Clubs to learn basic water craft, and compete in organised events.    Thanks to the tireless band of parents and club members who pretty much dedicate their entire weekend to educationg the next generation of life savers.

 Etymology - in English "Nipper" was a name often given to a young lad who was fleet of foot -"nipping" or darting around.  In Australia, it's also the name given to the pincer on a crab or lobster, so there's a nice connection between energy and the sea!

Groups of Two


Here in Australia in the midst of the World Crisis, we are still allowed out, but we can only get together in groups of two.    There are ways of making the most of that!

Social Distancing


In just a week we've gone from a nation of beach goers huddling with our mates, to a bunch of egrets sitting alone and distrustful, guarding our stash of toilet paper.

Strange times.
