the coffs coast | Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter travel photography

we recently spent an extended weekend at safety beach nsw, the lovely home of my even lovlier parents

they are currently doing some major land developments and even though many of the beautiful trees are gone and the nextdoor neighbours are looming ever closer, it is still a gorgeous piece of the world and always a fun, relaxing visit with some adventure  mixed in

we visited the bello markets and saw some of the local ‘wildlife’, but also saw some very creative people.  we checked out curryfest and the shey punjabi dancers which i think should be the new zumba.  had a romantic childless stroll around the jetty.  went worming on low tide, john, as always being the master wormer caught 4 whoppers. and enjoyed a lovely meal at mangrove jacks cafe

enjoy the ride

and it begins… after an afternoon in front of the computer and significant square eyes i have created a blog

i am a person of few words, so perhaps a blog seems like a strange idea, but in this blog i hope to express myself through a few photos here and there

photography has always been something that i have enjoyed and appreciated, but now is something that inspires and challenges me. i have suddenly developed a desire to pursue photography and am trying to capture the beauty of my little life.

so this is going to be a journey… and i am so excited!!
