AUGUST BREAK...LINES



It wasn't until I loaded the photos onto the ipad that i saw the wire netting 'lines' on the posts as I was too far away when I took the photo. A lucky shot.





I went back to the creek this morning, yesterday's ride there was so beautiful I needed a repeat. 
The last photo is one I took yesterday, saving it for LINES  today.

AUGUST BREAK...MORNING


A beautiful clear sunny morning here this morning so I trundled off on my bike to see what I could see along the creek. This is my favourite photo today.


I have always loved to see oldies walking hand in hand! Me included!



The first three ducks very happy enjoying their breakfast until a fourth came rushing in to spoil their fun!


The early bird catching the worm!



There is something very special about the early morning light...and the late afternoon as well.

MEMORIES....AUGUST BREAK

I did wonder what my post would be about as so we have so many 'memory' possessions still packed, waiting for our new home. I think I've said we have only unpacked what was necessary for our immediate use, thinking we would only be here for a couple of months! Thus several mistakes were made, such as our winter sheets well and truly hidden away. I did find one box that had extra blankets, thank goodness as it has been rather a long dreary winter.
Anyway I digress!
Photos of photos I have on my dressing table...


My mother and father in the two single frames and my mother-in-law and father-in-law together. I never met my father-in-law and my father died when I was almost seventeen so it is lovely to have these 'memories' so close to us, where we see them every day.


This is a photo of my two younger brothers and I posing on an aeroplane tube my parents bought for us from a disposals shop in Melbourne. They were very impressed with themselves as,somehow, they had to carry it onto a tram then I suppose on a train to bring it home. Hardly a small keepsake! 
We lived on a farm with a creek just below the house so learning to swim was a necessity. We had so much fun with the tyre, floating around on it, seeing how many of us, including cousins who were staying with us, could crowd onto the tyre without falling off. And of course with four boys and one girl in the family tricks were often played...perhaps I might be floating in my own world when one of my brothers would come along and tip me off! Maybe occasionally the other way around!
By the way please don't think I had/have extraordinarily large feet! The flippers were good fun too.
Good memories of a time long gone.

AUGUST BREAK...SHADOWS





As I have been in Melbourne for the last couple of days I've been using older photos. The top ome which I don't think I took but is on my ipad, probably one of Lucy's from Stonefruitseason blog. It has special significance for us as it is taken where my brother lives. He is a batchelor, much beloved by all his family, my children, my nephews and nieces and now into the next generation, lovely to see. This bend in the creek is on the farm I grew up in and the spot where my mother built her new house after the family house burnt down nearly fifty years ago. As children this spot was where we often swam so lots of history for our family.
The second photo I've always enjoyed for it's 'architectural' or 'sculptured' look.
And the third... Under the jetty next to the Point Lonsdale lighthouse, taken on a day when I was meandering along and around the 'point'.
I can't believe it is the weekend again...so ....happy weekending!
