Summertime Blues

The big fella's had a bit of a fight on his hands pulling me out of holiday/Christmas mode.  Running heifers through the yards for needling and dipping helped.  I retaliated the following day, organising a day trip on Grandad's new boat.

There was snorkelling,

swimming and snorkelling off Monkey Beach (South Keppel)

some ipod listening,

as well as a drive-by past XXXX Island (formerly Pumpkin Island),

We're so fortunate to have these beautiful islands right on our doorstep.
Hopefully there'll be time for another trip these holidays.


  1. am jealous. Don't believe we've really entered holiday mode yet up here :( but certainly how lucky are you to have access to Grandad's boat and such a beautiful area. I'd be there as often as possible!

  2. Fiona,
    it all looks so great, very similar to what we have been doing. We are so blessed to live in Australia.
    Thanks for your comments specially on my hair, still not loving it. Oh well, least its easy in all that saltwater.
    enjoy your holidays, talk soon. x

  3. Beautiful I love the girls polka dot shirts. Did you sew them?

  4. The blue, blue water and the red polka dots is Summer all over. Have a lovely time, Fi. x

  5. What a lovely spot to spend the day away from the farm work.
    Wishing you a happy new year.
