Day out, picture taking.

The morning broke sunny and fresh. Well, it appeared that way at 5.45, and was definitely that at 9 when I woke and on seeing the time decided that was enough of a sleep in.
After rousing the boys, starting my first coffee and thinking breakfast there was a knock on my door. The eldest was called into work, can he go. Thinking quickly, yes, I can still do what I wanted, I’ll just take the long way around.
In less than half an hour we’re out the door, apples in hand.
This was my planned trip. Planned on leaving home late morning and having a relaxing drive.

This is what I did. To Kingston, picked up more paperwork for son’s drivers licence, dropped him at work…

Kingston to Huonville. Went to make an appointment, need more paperwork, and have it approved, grabbed a bite to eat, by this time it was after 11 and we were starving.

And then I finally got to have my casual trip taking photos. I went off up and down roads, to see what was there, but with the wind picking up the water was too choppy and not inspiring.
We found a beach I’d forgotten about, thinking this will be nice for a sunny day and just getting out of the house. And it’s close by. If we play it right, we can take the dog too. Later in the afternoon, it was a game of tennis, housework, then a meeting that evening. This weekend includes a catch up with friends on both days. And this week isn’t going to be any quieter, especially with a market again on Sunday.
Some of the photos I took. There are plenty merge to taken all these places, but that can wait for another day now.





More photos can be found over here

Ps. Then there was the trip back to pick up son from work, take him again this morning (I’ve made him catch the bus this afternoon) and both days on the weekend for work. None of us can wait til he gets his licence and we don’t have to supervise anymore.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Unusual POV

This was a little harder for me as my usual MO is up close and personal macro style. Or looking across at something.
So unusual for me, is looking down on or up at. Which is how I chose to do this weeks challenge.


Weekly photo challenge – Sea

What do you find near the sea, but shells of course.

Come for a walk with me…

Come with me, and let me show you the scenery as I take my 5.5k walk.  You have to be careful though, there’s not much room in some places to walk, and the roadkill can get quite pungent…

Turning left from my house and heading down the hill, south, towards the shopimage

Follow the road around to the right, avoiding a stop at the shop,  and watch the cows as they watch you (ok, heifer, steer, Bovine creature)image

A short distance later, turn left and heading south again, follow the long and winding road (only a few hundred metres)image

a vege garden along the wayimage

just past here, we turn left, heading downhill slightly towards the water image

and checking out lush paddocks on the way image

the start of the Esplanade, turning left and heading north for 2k (past the playground, boat ramp and old jetty at the bottom of our road) image

the second last uphill, near the end of the esplanade image

The highway, turn left here, and go for 500 mt up the hill, nearly there image

Home! Not bad, and it only took 45 mins (or 4-5 mins if you’re reading this..) image

If I fancy a shorter walk, I cut it in half by heading down my road to the esplanade and then follow this trip.  The dog usually comes on this one. He’s tired enough to not misbehave on the lead near the road by the time we get there.
