Winter Outings – Pirianda Gardens

Located on Hacketts Road, Olinda is the quiet and unassuming Pirianda Gardens. We have not visited this site before and had not even heard of it, even though we must have driven past this road 100s of times before. It is right near the RJ Hamer Arboretum, which is the easy way in on this dirt track.…

Share Your World – 19th June 2018

You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? Sushi? Scotch Tape? Sushi – hell no! Scotch Tape? What on earth would I do with Scotch Tape? Now Chocolate? Money? Coffee? Mmmm tough one. An unlimited supply of chocolate would probably be disastrous. Coffee? I pretty…

Monday Musings…

I had a fairly quiet weekend by all accounts, I did paint a rather large canvas backdrop for an upcoming workshop, it was arduous and time-consuming, but I think hopefully worth it, my aching muscles still do not quite agree! I also made a full-length tulle skirt, for the same workshop and probably many others…

We have not been for nearly three years, and it’s quite astounding how much my photography has improved since our last visit, check out my post from way back then. I seemed to capture fairly similar images, it is not an overly large place and…

Winter Outings – RJ Hamer Arborteum

We have not really been out exploring much since we got back from Tassie, a month ago. I guess we were going a bit stir crazy, it been a month of catching up with various jobs around the house, work, social engagements and then, of course, the Exhibition. The weather had not been so brilliant…

Monday’s Musings

We officially hit Winter on Friday…how depressing, and just to celebrate Melbourne turned on the sunshine. Blue Skies, mild temperatures and light winds. The last few weeks have been bitterly cold and grey and drizzly. I am sure there is more horrible to come. We have been getting very cold mornings along with our clear…

Our Tasmanian Adventure – Day 19

Our trip over on the ferry was mostly calm, I was violently woken about Midnight by being thrown against the wall in my bunk, it was quite turbulent until about 3am, poor Moth did not fare much better on this trip than last and got little sleep. We were woken at 5:45am by the onboard…
