This is my next door neighbour's cat. You just have to wonder what cats are thinking ...

It was an incredibly clear morning, it all looked so calm. This is the view from the back deck of my house looking out to St Clair Beach.

Boys will be boys

The boys were out on the trampoline yesterday. Of course, the trampoline was just the springboard for launching yourself into trees.

Standing out

Sometimes you just feel like you are the only brown house in a grey world. (Either I am being very philosophical, or I was playing with Photoshop and have nothing of interest to say about this image - you choose.)

Harbour cone

The harbour cone on the Otago Harbour, Dunedin's volcano. I prefer cookies and cream myself.

Another perfect morning

Every morning is a perfect morning in its own way. I am very lucky to be blessed with this view each day in all of its various moods.

St Clair

I love this mural at St Clair beach. It was painted by Lyndsay Crooks who sadly passed away a few years ago. I love the sense of fun and summer in his work.

The sun was glorious. This photo is for my mum - the original Daisy.

Time for another Jessica photo. She is enjoying being out in the garden again now the sun is shining.

When will people learn?

I was dismayed to see this child, who looked about three, crawling around in the hatch area of this car completely unrestrained. How is this still happening?

A nice place to walk

I take myself off for a walk each day to escape the computer screen, you couldn't ask for a nicer path to follow than this one.

Looking up

I decided to look up today.

One Arm Point

Another photo from my past. This is an Aboriginal community up the top of Western Australia a few hours drive through the bush in a four wheel drive from Broome. Very remote. Was a fantastic trip to stay with my friend Fiona who was teaching there at the time.

Blast from the past

I spent today scanning old photos and I came across this one which I think is fabulous. (I am the one in the pool on the left)

Keeping warm

Woke up Saturday morning and the back deck was covered in snow! Strange spring we are having.

Spring just keeps getting better

One more month until summer hits Dunedin, and they forecast snow and I light the fire, much to the delight of Jessica who took up her normal position.

Rainy days

The sun has come and gone, and the raindrops are back. Bring on summer.
