Autum Outings – Cardinia Lake

We had several days of stunning Autumn sunshine, not too hot nor too cold and bright blue skies, perfect weather for exploring. I know I say I love Summer and the warmer weather, but I am thinking these days I prefer days like this. So we went exploring with our cameras, as we do. I like…

Regular Random – Last of the Hydrangeas

On a recent trip looking for awesome Autumn colour I came across this almost spent Hydrangea bush, refusing to give up on the last fragments of blooms, almost devoid of colour. I spent at least five minutes and took way too many photos of this stunning plant, for it truly was with it’s subtle blues,…

Our Coastal Adventure – Inverloch, Day 3

After such a big day the day before we allowed ourselves a small sleep in and a leisurely breakfast. We again headed out to Eagles Nest and Cape Paterson, to see how they differed at High Tide. Eagles Nest was still quite visible, but much more treacherous to get to. I stayed up top and…
