Pink Ladies

The smooth lake looks perfect for gliding on with gentle dipping of oars.  I'm into the groove of relaxation now ... the cares of the city and work a past imagining.

But the restless sea is also close by ... we'll go see the action tomorrow.


  1. Love this composition.The canoes are lovely, and their colours a joy. But the stillness of the pier and its reflection MAKE this image.

  2. I agree - fantastic composition! feels like a relaxing day.

  3. Uh, I don't know if I would be comfortable in a pink boat:):)

  4. Emile, it is funny that you should say that. The title of this post was in some ways a salute to Jessica Watson who sailed solo around the world when only 16 years old ... her yacht was pink and named Pink Lady.

  5. Glad to hear that you are having a relaxing time. This view would calm anyone.

  6. This is my new year's resolution! (not really a resolution - but I'm going with it)
    For 4 years now I've been dreaming of owning a canoe/surfski and taking myself off a'paddlin'.
    (vince would like a jet-ski - so we can go together - not quite sure how that is going to work).
    I've never seen pink ones before.
    Wait til I show Vince!

  7. I really love this shot :) actually your whole journey south was great to see.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

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.
