A new day, a new beginning! (WPC – Rise/Set)

A new day brings a new beginning. A day to begin a new project, a day to begin planning a new adventure, or sometimes it’s simply a day to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

In the encouraging words of my darling mother… sometimes you just have to live each day to spite those who don’t want you to. My mother, our very own ray of sunshine!🙃

Rise/Set is this week’s Photo challenge from The Daily Post. Be sure to click on the icon below to see more fabulous interpretations of this week’s challenge.

Water on Earth (Travel Theme: Earth)

Watching the sun set so behind the islands outside our windows is wonder enough but being spring, the sounds of hummingbirds flying from bush to bush filter through the open window.

Mother Earth, you certainly know how to spoil us. Earth is this week’s travel theme challenge from Where’s My Backpack!

 

 

 

 

7 Day Nature Challenge – Day 6

Day 6 of the 7-Day Nature Challenge is the combination of the force of nature on what was once a post cemented on Mother’s Nature’s glorious Pincushion Island. Despite these man-made conditions nature prevails by slowly adding life to the bottom of the post.

Force of Nature

The lovely Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist has nominated me for this wonderful challenge. As I repeatedly say, do visit her fabulous blog if you aren’t already familiar with it.

In turn I’d like to invite Imelda of My Wall to join in. Imelda’s captures of the world around her are absolutely stunning plus her accompanying poetry is simply wonderful. Please take a moment to visit her blog if you haven’t already done so!

7-Day Nature Challenge: Day 3

Day 3 of the 7-Day Nature Challenge is getting up close and personal with a sand crab we came across when first digging our toes into the wet sand on our walk to Pincushion Island on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of Queensland.

7 Day Nature Challenge – Day 2

For Day 2 of the 7-Day Nature Challenge we are walking along North Shore Beach, Sunshine Coast – Queensland, on our way to Pincushion Island, Maroochy River.

Sand Grass

Getting there took me to part of the Sunshine Coast that I honestly can’t remember visiting since the road was once nothing but a one-lane sand track. Trust me though, we shall be back. And hey, the bitumen is a big improvement, lol!

The Future looks Bright (WPC: Future)

When a sunrise like this greeted us of a morning whilst we were away, it seemed to give the day just a little more oomph you could say!

Future is Bright

Yes, the future looked bright when beginning with such a glorious light. Quite fitting for this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge of… FUTURE!

 

 

 

 

 

Ready. Set. GLOW! (Wordless Wednesday)

In the Morning’s Half-Light (WPC: Half-Light)

Yesterday morning there was an extraordinary orange glow coming through the lounge-room shades. Peeking through the shades, the source of this glow was quickly discovered.

Half Light

The sun was slowly rising, casting the most glorious HALF-LIGHT over the river and ocean before me. The silhouettes of those already out enjoying the morning, including the various species of birds, reconfirming why this is my favourite time of day!
