I know it’s a first world problem, but being an author comes with the responsibility of an ‘author photo’. I love being behind the lens of a camera, but don’t enjoy being in front of it. However, with Return To Roseglen only weeks away from release, I needed to update my photo. Capt G assured Continue reading
Where did 2016 go?
It’s hard to believe that 2016 has been relegated to the history books and 2017 is already rocketing along. When we left Cooktown last year, heading north to the Flinders Islands in Bathurst Bay, I had every intention of keeping the blog updated. Of course, I should have known that the Telstra map showing coverage Continue reading
Now about that coffee table book of sunrises and sunsets?
It’s time to celebrate my new look web-page with a give away or four!! All the bugs and kinks have been worked through by Kerry, my lovely designer from Internet Thinking. (Huge round of applause for him and his hard work – I particularly love that I have a gallery of my photos so you Continue reading
Farewell to Hinchinbrook Island
For eighteen years I looked down on Hinchinbrook Island from the cockpit of my Dash 8 as we flew between Cairns and Townsville and I marvelled at its moods. Quite often the skies would be clear accept for the thunderstorm brewing over the craggy island. Under the care of Captain Lyle Cook I joined a Continue reading
We had a delightful sail from Horseshoe Bay to Orpheus Island – although I lost count of the sail changes as the wind was up and down. When it reached 17 knots in a rush, and we still had our beautiful pink spinnaker up, I think we were both a little concerned we were headed Continue reading
Rugged diversity of Shaw Island.
My words will never do it justice so here’s Shaw Island and its magnificent diversity captured in photos.
A glorious day for a sail
The weather gods smiled on us today. It all started with our early departure from Bundaberg and a sublime sunrise. They don’t get much better than this in my humble opinion. Then the wind started to blow from the south-west and Roobinesque kicked up her heels and headed north with the spray flying from her Continue reading
Talk about unfit…
So today was the day I was reminded that my fitness has plumbed new depths… Not only do I have half a wardrobe full of clothes I can’t wear, but apparently cycling 10 kms there and 10 kms back again is arduous! Capt G announced he was cycling to Stocklands at Pialba. What a great Continue reading
It’s a taxing time of year…
Every year I vow I will be more organized. Every year I start the way I mean to go on. Every year I fall by the wayside… Then the alert sounds on my calendar and I realise the appointment with the accountant is a couple of weeks away. Luckily our accountant is a lovely lady Continue reading
Brisbane’s all grown up
After four weeks of being of no-fixed abode it felt a little weird flying back into Brisbane yesterday and realising it’s not home anymore. I found myself looking at it through a slightly different lens as I drove around and ticked off the jobs I needed to do. I’d booked a hotel down at Kangaroo Continue reading
