It’s been raining in Sydney on and off all day today so I retreated inside to a job I have been procrastinating about, sorting through some old photographs. I thought sharing these blue skies could be an antidote to the bulging black clouds I can see threatening to spill any minute. After all, it’s almost … More Shaking it off with Vitamin D in Byron Bay
One of the things I enjoyed most about travelling in a campervan, was when I stumbled upon somewhere that was unexpectedly great, I could just stay! Friendly Beaches was one such place. I was driving into Freycinet National Park intending to see Wine Glass Bay, when I noticed a road to the left signposting ‘Friendly Beaches’… Why … More Vanlife, Home is where you park
A short post today, because I am…..mmmm….. otherwise occupied with a good book!

The weather had other plans and there was no good wind so instead, mornings were for yoga and paddleboarding and the afternoons … More The simple life……..
I mentioned the reason I have come to Mexico is go see Copper Canon, however as always there’s no fun in going directly there so I am in Baja California for some beach time first.

What comes after whalesharks? Well a few quiet days in fact. I decided to leave Exmouth when I found myself gliding down the street thinking I was a fish. Too much time in the water. I drove south to Coral Bay to check it out, but as it was school holidays the place looked like a fat … More Where to now?
From Broome I am heading south on the Walu Way, to get to Exmouth and the whalesharks.
