I'm Back


Just spent an amazing 10 days away. Away from a big city. Away from lots of people. In beautiful nature. In stunning countryside so close to home and can't believe I hadn't seen before. So many exquisite meals. So many exquisite moments. Almost 2500 km's driven. A $231 fine received for speeding. Ouch. Some very lovely people met. Lots of sunshine. Lots of rain. Gorgeous walks in ancient rainforests. Standing amongst trees that were more than 400 years old and 55 metres tall. And each time we found we were the only ones there - can you imagine having a rainforest to yourself....sublime. The Weed Shire. Sleep-ins. Hearty breakfasts. Beach picnic lunches. Whales. Lots of whales. Mothers and calves. Males exuberantly displaying and dancing. Heading south too early say many. Sugarcane. Macadamia nut trees. Bananas. Cows. Sheep. Goats. Horses. Beach walks. Shells. Hills and mountains. Rolling green. Greens of all shades. Stars. Milky Way. Abundance. Space. Peace. Love. The Promised Land. Delicious perfect coffee and chai in the middle of nowhere. Fireplaces. Almost no TV. No computer.

And did I mention the Love!!!!!

For SPC - from the trip: my entry above. Me & JD. Finding ourselves on another beach. We'd driven the car down onto the sand. The wind was blowing. The sun was near setting. Everything was so lovely. Find more SPC'ers here.

I love how JD is emerging from the light. Over all a very Oliver Stone feel....

Wonderful composition! Quite nice, indeed.

You asked me about the guitar music playing on my blog. No, it is not my husband (although he is excellent playing a wide variety of styles on his guitars). It was Ottmar Liebert's Barcelona Nights that you heard. If you like and if you let me know your email address, I can send you each of the songs from that CD. You can contact me at Bedazzzled1@aol.com.

Again, your photo this week is great. Just as your vacation sounds like it was!
