Life

I haven’t posted in a while, but life in general has been pretty busy.

I have still been out and about taking lots of photographs and am in the process of putting a website together for people to view the photographs.  The beaches page is currently in progress.  It takes a lot of work to organise the photographs, but it’s a learning process and I must admit it is very enjoyable.

There is still light in the sky at 11pm here.  I love the long evenings and it is nice to get out and about when we can.

I thought i’d post a couple of beach photographs below.  I have sifted through and have over 40 photographs of the beautiful beaches to upload to the site.  Until next time!

 

The Long Gold Panning Weekend

What a lovely weekend gold panning.

It had been raining heavily on Friday night, so by Saturday morning the rivers were in spate a little, but we weren’t going to let that stop us.  It was great to meet up with everyone.

The midges were about and I got about eleven bites on my face.  I found a few small flecks of gold and one nice little flake.  We had a lovely indian meal on the Saturday evening.  It was buffet night, so you could eat as little or as much as you wanted.

Sunday was a nice day.  The rivers were still up, but the weather was mild.  I again found a few small flecks of gold and one nice little flake.

On Monday there were clear blue skies and the weather was lovely and warm.  I found a few small flecks of gold and decided to collect small garnets too.

For me, Monday was more about relaxing, taking pictures and enjoying the sunshine.

I managed to get some great shots with my camera.  I hope you like the piccies below:
