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.

7 Day Nature Challenge – Day 7 (Flower Friday)

Day 7 of the 7-Day Nature Challenge. It’s hard to believe we are at the final day of this fabulous challenge and being a Friday I couldn’t resist a flower. This is a Australian Bottle Brush of which there at least 50 different varieties.

Bottle Brush Flower

Having spent the morning exploring the delightful Pincushion Island, we took another route back to where our car was parked. For the last 20 meters there was tree after tree of these Bottle Brushes in bloom. It was just glorious!

The lovely Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist nominated me for this wonderful challenge and I have had just the best time. As I’ve been saying all week, do visit her fabulous blog if you aren’t already familiar with it.

And being the final day of this challenge I’d like to invite anyone who might be interested in doing this 7-Day Nature Challenge to please do so. It’s a fabulous way to have nature “re-inspire” you, and not just with your photography I assure you, lol!

 

 

 

 

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.

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!
