We’re all going on a summer holiday
No more worries for me or you
For a week or two
We’re going where the sun shines brightly
We’re going where the sea is blue
We’ve all seen it on the movies
Now let’s see if it’s true
Everybody has a summer holiday
Doing things they’ve always wanted to
So we’re going on a summer holiday
To make our dreams come true
For me and you
For me and you
Ok so we’re not going on a summer holiday but summer is coming. Stunning, stunning, stunning day. The wet month of October seems to have left us and summer feels like it is on its way. Very exciting as the West Coast made the national news on the TV reaching the nations high for the day’s temperature.
Loaded up with the camera gear we headed out to the rocks for the sunset. The dogs don’t take much convincing even though we’d spent most of the day in the gardens which means lots of running for the boys chasing their toys while we cut back the spring growth.
The reflections out on the rocks were fantastic and it was so peaceful. I was enjoying the views and our surroundings thinking how beautiful it was – then I remembered…… I live here!
Stephen was playing with the incoming tide and testing his luck with the waves. He gave me the majority of the camera gear to look after – just in case, no point it all getting trashed if he did take a wave. There was one “little” moment where he lost his footing but he managed to keep the camera gear up above the swirling water and came away with just a small graze on his knee – was kind of funny…….
The sky was amazing – all lit up with hues of orange and yellow well after the sun had set. Time to head back up to the house and put our feet up. It’s tough living in paradise.
