Chasing away the blues

Yesterday The Golfer suggested a day out, and after some discussion (I wanted a walk on the beach and somewhere we don’t usually visit), he suggested Torquay, so off we went.

It was one of “those” Spring days; mild, sunny, cloudy, overcast, rainy and cold, or in other words, four seasons in one day! On the way down we passed several paddocks brilliantly yellowed with crops of ripening canola

20150921-215016.jpgThere are some “seats” along the path carved from driftwood (this is for you Malcolm)

20150921-215342.jpgIf you squint and look closely at this next pic, you’ll see some black specks below the cliffs; there were four foolhardy souls out on their surf boards. It was bad enough trying to walk along the path in a freezing, blustery wind let alone be in the water!

20150921-215729.jpgLooking back the other way you can see some people walking dogs…….again, brrr!

The invigorating walk in the “bracing breeze” blew some cobwebs away……….

    Good that some of those cobwebs are gone, they can sure clutter up the design process. A day out with hubby is a always a good thing.

    Ahh.. it may have been cold and windy, but it sure is beautiful!

  7. Malcolm says thank you for the picture!! He also tells me that we had breakfast in Torquay ……. but I don’t remember!! A walk by the sea is one of the great pleasures in life – even in bad weather!!

    Your husband had a great idea !! Dear Meredithe, be patient….no doubt that the sun will arrive !!

  9. Lovely pictures. It is always nice to blow the cobwebs away, even if it’s not quite as relaxing!
