Oh We Do Love To Be Beside The Seaside...

What a magical weekend we had...we hopped in the car and travelled to our little house by the sea, 2 hours away...

We were thrilled with the new floating floors we had put down a few weeks back. Do you see the indian in the picture on the door? This was a spiritual reading/drawing I had done a few years back...his name is Kato and this piece of art is very important to day perhaps I will share the story here...

We spent the morning painting the deck...many hands make light work.

So, the afternoon was free to take a stroll along our beautiful beach...the sky was so incredibly blue.

I just love this beach - it's so rugged and is the perfect place to meditate and just enjoy the gifts of nature...

I love the feeling of sand between my toes...

We collected some shells...

And saw these beautiful creatures enjoying the beach...I think Pip thought they were ginormous dogs!

Of course we had to take some cute pics...I had pirates on my mind, thanks Vanessa!

Then it was back to the house and my very favourite swing...I can spend hours in this chair! Just give me a good book and a cup of coffee and I'll swing to my heart's content...

Just look at this beautiful flowering gumtree in our I swung, I looked up through it's branches to that beautiful blue sky above...

Oh was definitely a most wonderful weekend.


  1. Tina,

    It sounds lovely. Everything looks so peaceful and enchanting. I hope yall enjoyed your trip. Our beach doesnt have the bluest water but it is still enchanting. You have given me an idea. I think I am going to take my children this week and spend the night. Sounds fun.
    Have a wonderfully Mad and Curiously Enchanting Day....
