Around My Neighbourhood

One of my favourite beaches for a walk is in a nearby town called Brunswick Heads. 

It has been wintry lately.

We pretty much had the place to ourselves yesterday.

Back at my place in the hills, we have had a visitor the past few days.
There are a few goannas on the land. This one is about four and a half feet.
The building is a combination of our tool shed and the compost lou. 

He isn't dangerous unless you try and grab him or something. They have big claws and can run very fast.

he reminds me of the gila monsters in Arizona, they look scary, but they have a live and let live philosophy... lovely winter beach, how nice to be close to the beach, Zom, I am so thrilled for you!

Close is relative. Australia is a big country and we are used to driving distances. The beach is a 30 - 40 minute drive, but that is 'close' to me. And there are such beautiful beaches here.

Oh, Zom - How beautiful your beach is! I'd love to meet your visitor - he/she looks very interesting (from a distance)!
I thought of you today as I refashioned a long sleeved T into a dress. xxoo, sus

you're making man of the house very homesick showing beaches from his home territory
