In a better mood, and not so inclined to fret about things I cannot change. Still enjoying the sunshine though, and the school holidays (although I am working) and the flowers in the garden. Here are some beach photos - we went on a lovely walk on Monday - around the south headland for a change.
There's no path around the rocks, so you walk along the top of the headland, past the big houses with the amazing views. It would be fabulous to have a place up there to look miles to the north, and south along the beach, and east all the way to Chile. The daisies are a weed and no doubt dreadful for the local environment ... but so beautiful at this time of year. They were all the way down the cliff to the water.
The headland goes around to the big river, so we walked along the riverside for a while then turned back to the streets. There's a big river frontage space before the houses (flooding, probably) that makes a lovely spot to walk. We saw a place that rents kayaks that we didn't know was there ... my husband and number one son are dead keen. The rest of us, not so much! A lot of work I think, and damp, just to waft along a bit of water.
