Some of those photos seem very familiar for some reason. ;) That's actually a very interesting angle for the wheel since nearly everyone else takes the shot from the ground up. Great pics. :D

I really like that last picture from above the clouds, Dug!

Hey, hope everyone is well. Here's a couple of pics from our few days at the beach. I had trouble getting the pic size just right so hope they're not too small.

A couple of shots of the bay.

Beautiful Con. Maybe a tiny bit on the cool side if there's a breeze up.

No Dug... she means OVER 20C dear. :lol: :lol: :lol: Jen lives further up the coast than I do. Its gorgeous up there. I lived up that way for years and was SHOCKED when I came down here and couldnt find a completely empty beach.

We went down to Surfers last week and couldnt go in the water... bluebottles! :( :(

So we popped down again this week for the afternoon and I admit I thought the water temp was too cool to go in, but yes it WAS warm. :oops: What can I say... I'm Australian. It was 32C here today and 21 tonight.... Yes OKAY I felt damn hot today.... but I did put a light cardy on tonight.

Digging for pippies. :D Taste like little clams but sweeter.

Bluebottles are jellyfish

Not the ones that kill you. But they give you a nasty sting. Leave whip marks on you.
