I have long admired the work of fellow bloggers in capturing the essence of the sea -- Peter at Sunshine Coast Daily and Lucy at Bermuda Daily Photo. I wanted so much to get some of their magic but the seaside remains an alien space that defeats me most of the time. Over the next week I'll show you what I managed.

From The Surfer by Judith Wright
"Take the big roller’s shoulder, speed and serve;
come to the long beach home like a gull diving."


  1. By George I think she's done it!

    A ripper Joan! The absolute essence is right there on the body board!

    Sunshine Coast Daily - Australia

  2. Nice photo. We enjoy holidaying by the sea. No surfers though.

  3. I do like that Judith Wright poem: my daughter recited it for some competition somewhere eons ago. Gets the Australian psyche pinned down, I think.

    Peter may be biased - but the surfer is darned good!

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
