flying colours...


the annual Rosebud Kite Festival was on yesterday...
The weather was sunny - at least mostly - and a brisk wind was blowing...
Perfect conditions for kite flying...




It's best to arrive at the event early before the crowds...

Happy Australia Day...


Dromana's Australia Day celebrations by the bay opened with The Warrains playing at 8am...
What a wonderful way to begin the day with great rhythmic sounds...


and glorious misty view of bay waters - including some odd scenes...




And so far, the crowds were not yet awake...

pier uplift...


Dromana pier is getting a little old, weathered and tired...
Over these summer holidays, yellow metals have been working on sections of the pier...
But access to the pier is still available up to the point where the metal monsters are activated...

new symphony...


It has been such a busy year this year...especially in the last few months...
Little energy to spare for my beloved blogging...
So some serious attention to a life balance is needed this year...my New Year intention...

Hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas season
and your New Year is one filled with happiness...

Sunday morning musings...


 Musing on a spring morning, just being still, and dreaming
through leaves of a large tree, can be needed light for the soul...
I have spent many hours of many days working on end of year marking and reports...
(School demands are getting significantly worse..)
My blogs have been sorely neglected...
A little dreaming here and there and a little reading have broken the vicious cycle...
There has been little time to go wandering with my camera...

But that time will come...

blossoming...


after endless days of grey skies, cold winds and rain,
(NOT photo friendly)
it is so lovely to see a Spring weekend blossom into sunshine and shadows...
at least for now...

if the beach is empty...


You know it must be winter if the beach is empty and the seas are wild...
This morning I took a brief, few photos of the beach and seas in Dromana
and then scurried back to the relative warmth of the shopping centre carpark and my car...
I felt I was breathing icy, stormy air down on the beach, but I had to grab a few desperate photos...

be thankful...


This was my view from my verandah early this morning...
After hearing many sirens, a helicopter flew overhead...
I did some Google search
and found that there was a major collision at McCrae
on the nearby Mornington Peninsula freeway...
All southbound lanes were closed...



No...
I am not going to launch into a report on the accident details...
Rather, I suddenly felt that this moment put my ongoing health woes into perspective...

I am close to getting my life back...



P.S. The accident drew a news helicopter as well...

out and about...


 at last... out and about...
This morning, on the way home from yet another doctor's appointment...
I decided to stop by the Hillview Community Reserve wetlands in Dromana...
It was too lovely a winter's day to let slide by...
Above is the entrance to the reserve from the small carpark...
The wetlands are just beyond to the right...


the approach to the wetlands...


the lovely reflections in the wetlands...


more reflections...


a wetland identity...


let's bathe in the sunshine...

winter grips the spirit... but...


autumn leaves have almost passed by in my garden...
winter grips the spirit...

Yes... It has been awhile since I last posted...

first - ongoing treatment of an abcess-like formation on my ankle...but still going to school...
(ankle elevated at weekends, just to be able to get around at school on Monday)
second - flu...but still going to school...
third - back injury from too much computer-time getting school reports finalised on a weekend
and requiring the last week of school term at home because I could barely move...

Being out and about to take photos seems like a distant memory...

But the ankle is almost healed - after many weeks...
flu gone...
Back finally improving, and I can move more freely...
(Reports and exam-marking all done on time... yeah...)
There is hope...
Perhaps next week - school holiday time - I can get out to take photos...



There is hope...
