This wintery weekend was just right for soup making; yesterday a large pot of lamb and chickpea,  tonight a classic chicken. And the best thing - a freezer full of heart warming goodness for other rainy days...

the last bit

We completed the last section of the Surf Coast walk on the weekend. It was our favourite part with lots of cliff top walking and views out over the sea. It was certainly more enjoyable minus our packs (we had to postpone our 3 Capes walk in Tassie til later in the year, so training with packs was no longer a necessity)

a student life

I am not sure why we bought a desk for her bedroom. All her stuff is sprawled on the kitchen table and that is where 'studying' happens...

surf coast walk

Zac and Jan joined us for a training hike yesterday. We knocked off a few more stages of the Surf Coast Walk. These sections included bush tracks, cliffs and the beach. The variety was certainly appreciated.

a golden field

There is a golden field of sunflowers nearby. Its draw is irresistible, inviting you to stop a while and be present - to colour and beauty, to simplicity and the magic that is all around...

Gave my new backpack (and boots) a bit of a trial run, almost 10km carrying almost 10kg. As usual Winnie got tired legs but now she has her very own doggy back pack. Think Colin would have preferred to carry my backpack rather than the Winnie-bago! But I need the practice and he doesn't.

Unfortunately only had Colin's iPhone again

a new year

My blogging has been sketchy of late so in 2018 I'm taking a break, kind of. Well making a bit of a change anyway. My aim for the year is to post one photo each week capturing something of the ordinary and everyday. A kind of visual diary of life for us here in Barwon Heads. I am going to focus on black and white, I have very little experience or understanding of this genre and it will be a great way to learn.

So here is the first offering, unfortunately taken on Colin's iPhone so the quality is crap, but the memory is priceless.

A 10 km walk to wear in our new hiking boots, someone got tired legs half way through...
