Lucky you Sandy! We are going into our summer, but temperatures are much lower than normal - this morning we had 9°C, and it has not become much warmer since :( Enjoy your sunshine! Love from Maja

Hi Maja ... yes were are going into our winter soon and our mornings are around 14 degrees now ... which is nice ;)

We are getting more rain though ... so not much sunshine at the moment ... but it is a lovely time of year ... Thanks for your visit and all the best to you from Sandy ;)

Hi Guy ... no golf balls ... just rock hopping and checking to see what we could find ;) I was hopeing to get closer to this little guy to get a decent shot ... but he took flight on me ;)

Wonderful, detailed portrait of the Kawaupaka (Microcarbo melanoleucos), Sandy!

But the background looks pretty rough & dangerous ...

Y* & Best wishes to NSW, Bernd

Thanks so much for the Y* Bernd ;) Yes this day there was a good onshore breeze and so a lovely big swell rolling in ... A perfect background for such a bird, I think ;)

Warm greetings from Sandy ;)
