Whilst walking on our local Howrah Beach recently, I noticed this star fish. There had been some significant erosion after strong high tides.
This is my contribution to HeyJude’s Life in Colour challenge, which is highlighting orange this month.

Six months ago, this was the perfect way to celebrate the end of hotel quarantine and getting back to my Aussie life.

Whilst in Rotorua we visited the Redwood Treewalk. A walk across twenty eight swing bridges, with information on each tree platform about the hundred year old redwood trees and the tree ferns below.
We were staying near Lake Rotorua so took a walk along the banks at dusk.
We’ve just returned from a fabulous holiday in New Zealand. A highlight was returning to Piha Beach after thirty five years.
This secluded ocean beach was just as I remembered. It’s black sand and the towering Lion Rock, remnants of its volcanic history.
The Brit in me still found it amazing to be in such a beautiful place, in such weather, on new year’s eve.
Today, Surf Safari celebrated 50 years of continuous surf craft racing in Tasmania – making it the longest running surf craft event in Australia.
Surf boards, kayaks, outriggers and surf boats, raced over courses from 2km to 28km with competitors of all age groups. After a stormy night the weather improved slightly but conditions were tough for the longer races, out on the open water.
This year, it was held on our local beach so I wondered along, took some photos, enjoyed a coffee and a famous Aussie “sausage sizzle” 🙂
