Mayflower Village Beauties

A mid-week visit to my parent’s home proved to be very colourful indeed for this week’s blog. The Mayflower Village is located in the south coastal town of Gerringong and it’s gardens are well maintained and very pleasing to the eye. Here are ten of my images I left with…

Birds!

My last working week was crazy and Ray and I didn’t have a day off together so unfortunately we didn’t get to go on a photo shoot. I did go ALL the way back to 2010 (when I first started my blog), in my photo file, and came up with these… 🙂

Longneck Lagoon

This weekend we thought it would be nice to go to Scheyville National Park for our photo shoot… Within the park was Longneck Lagoon. Unfortunately, we could not gain access to the park, and after being unable to get in at another entrance, we were left to take road-side photos of the lagoon. So this is what I have for you 😉

Windsor

Happy New Year to all you folks! Thank you for continuing to follow me in 2014 🙂

New Year’s Day was a fun-filled day at home with friends, so we went out after Ray’s work on Saturday evening. Windsor is a lovely place and after our little photo shoot we moseyed on down to the famous Windsor Ice Cream Cafê and indulged 😉
