summer nears


cooling down

playing with the breeze

bamboo chimes

These Indonesian wind chimes hang on our front veranda . They create a smoother more natural contrasting sound to the metal wind chimes hanging nearby. Many afternoons in Summer after a hot day the evening coastal breeze drifts up the hill from Port Phillip Bay and cools us  down with music from these chimes and breath from the wind.

goodbye for now



days colour

a fading sunset

cover up

Another sunset at Ricketts Point with the middle photo looking across towards the You Yangs. These large hills dominate the Western edge of Port Phillip Bay.

The view from the top is magnificent looking around the bay sweeping down past the city of Melbourne. Towards the North one sees Mt Macedon and immediately below to the South West is Geelong. Before Europeans  arrived, (invaded) Indigenous people used these hills for watching and communicating with smoke.
