Sunny Sunday

A quiet Sunday spent with a pleasant drive to the local foreshore.
Baxter Ranges in the background. This is near where the Baxter detention centre was located.

Yesterday was a filthy, dirty, dusty day with a temperature of 29 degrees and strong gusty winds. The big sail in this picture came adrift in the strong winds.

Today was a lot better to spend outside, as the cool change has arrived.

Dogs enjoying a swim. They were retrieving tennis balls that their owners were throwing for them.

Small beach where the local Aquatics Centre frequent

View from a once busy wharf

One of the shops... Big W

Some cocky's (Pink Galah) enjoying the sunshine

From the bridge over the gulf, this foreshore has been recently revamped and looks a lot better

And the front beach where the locals gather on long hot summer days

This lilac has sprung into bloom and is making a lovely bright ground cover
(don't know why this photo went sideways)

Getting closer now. These quandongs (wild peaches) are ripening quickly now the weather is warming up

This collection of pipes belong to my mother-in-law. She wanted them mounted on a board so she can display them at a function coming up next weekend. Hubby did a great job don't you think?

Hope your Sunday has been an enjoyable one.


  1. Beautiful job.

    Wild peaches, I don't think I have heard them called that before, makes sense.

    I have washing on the line that was rained on. My husband says the rain had dirt in it and has to be washed again.

    It sounds a little like Yarrawonga just off the top of my head.

  2. Your photos are lovely. The pipe display was really effective. It is lovely to hear about life in your neck of the woods.

  3. These are beautiful photos, water is so relaxing especially when it laps at the sides of its sand bar. the flowers are lovely too. Sunday drives to nature are the best thing.
