a story with sun and moon

The beach in winter is in my favourite 5. We arrived with the last of the late afternoon and just in time to see the sun slowly sinking into the ocean. It was both loud and quiet and peaceful and restless. Our eyes took a little while to adjust to the colour and light and the limitlessness. The girls ran up and down with another small friend until their feet were red like BBQ ready chops. That night there was a partially eclipsed full moon. We drank and ate with friends and felt merry like it was christmas. We must get back again soon:-)

when we rise, that's the time...

In the morning, when we rise, that's the time I love the best - to paraphrase Donovan x - we had a lovely slow Sunday morning after a crazy go fast Saturday. Today is the Queens birthday holiday, so one more day off work and school for us. These photos were all snapped within minutes of each other. It all started when a bird flew into our window and alerted scout's feline attention, then came my young ones breakfast requests, toast and butter, a baby chai and my old school favourite, apples with brown sugar and cinnamon. Happy birthday I x who turned 6 on Thursday - some pics of that soon xxxx.

fresh today

Winter is with us. Warming toes by the fire. A little red wine goes a long way. Spotting the prettiest drops of dew.

in hand

I have felt and found myself too busy to take photos in the last couple of weeks. Flickr once again provides a much needed photographic fix.
