adventure day

I’m on holidays this week because there comes a point when you just need some downtime off work for no reason other than your own sanity’s sake.

Today Harley & I drove out of the city on an adventure for some ‘earth time’ and here’s what we got up to

 The Stanwell Tops Lookout wasn’t busy considering it is a week day. A local hang-glider was waiting for some wind so we chatted while his dog Pup the cavoodle and Harley (the cavoodle) had an impromptu play date! I ate my little picnic overlooking the bluest ocean and lay on the grass breathing in the warm salty air.

We continued on into the National Park where the sun was shining, the spring air was warm and scented by wattle trees. We discovered a little river and spotted two water dragons sunning themselves.

Content with a day out of the hustle & bustle of city life, we started the hour and a half long drive back, Harley with his furry little head eternally hanging out the window and me singing my heart out to Coldplay on the stereo.

We spent the last week in beautiful Byron Bay, the most easterly location in Australia, walking along the beach, exploring local farms & little country towns, grazing the farmer’s markets & making gourmet meals with the amazing produce, curled up watching movies in the unseasonal downpour, collecting seashells, drinking great wine and just relaxing, enjoying each other’s company.

What a fabulous holiday… I’m blissful!

Hope you’ve all be well and safe and happy,

the ten days Jay & I spent at Tokoriki Island Resort in Fiji in 2010 was one of the best holidays we’ve had.

we left relaxed, tanned & romanticized with the most delicious memories.
