A couple of weeks back I took a day off to run around at the local show with my niece and nephew. Bubble blowing was the hands down winner of Best Things Ever, closely followed by cotton candy and baby cows.
A Sunday morning spent surfing in Byron Bay with wonderful friends.
The sun was bright, the water was crystal clear and the pineapples incredibly sweet. My skin is still brown.

That's where I've been spending a lot of my time lately, favorite places. With favorite people. It's been nice to switch off from the online world a little, it's helped me feel more connected to my physical world. But I have missed this place too and I have plenty to share as soon as time allows for some scanning.
It must have been a little while ago now that Michelle, Little D and me spent a day wondering the Botanic Gardens. I was kind of disgusted at myself for never having been there before, I really have no excuse. But we had a wonderful afternoon exploring the exhibits and helping Little D discover new shapes and smells and textures.
As we were leaving there was (of course) the most amazing afternoon light, backed by equally amazing stormy skies. To get to the front gate we had to walk through the "Scented Plants" section, and it was as we were passing through it that a sun shower started. Now please stop and imagine this: You are standing in a garden of Lavender with the sun on your shoulders. Cool rain is stirring the garden and the smells of peppermint, sage, and something you know but can't quite remember are filling your head. Is it that cinnamon tree? Maybe. You can definitely smell Guava...
We swore to return at the same time another day with cameras, more film and more friends in tow.
