here and now
You would think, after a month long blogging break, I'd have something a bit more exciting to talk about than the weather.
May, you are simply beautiful. Please stay like this forever. Warm enough to splash in salty water, yet just cool enough to slip on vintage woolens that have been stashed away for what seemed like an eternal Summer (this stripey number is on loan from Lalie's cousins).
These photos were taken at Townsville's main beach (don't bother stopping here if you fancy a surf!). Despite sometimes feeling isolated and uninspired in this largely suburban town, the view to Magnetic Island accross a tranquil ocean that gleams like a sheet of glass never fails to fill me with pure wonder. As I watch my daughter play quietly in the sand I find myself starting to appreciate this beautiful place for all that it has to offer - space, air, quiet, calm. For the first time in a long time I think I am starting to feel settled, or at least comfortably paused here in this sleepy town for the next few chapters.
