Snow covered surf…? Wild Weekly Photo Challenge: Now

Summer is all about sunshine, surf and bronzed bodies. And when you live on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, summer is also about wild weather, tropical storms and cyclones.

In the last 24 hours my home has seen torrential rains, gail force winds and a coast line that now resembles a winter wonderland. Massive swells carry metres of foam across roads, delighting both locals and tourists alike.

Mother Nature in all her fury can certainly create the unique and beautiful, allowing those to take in the moment as it is now…

Kangaroos in the back paddock…

I live in suburbia, well Australian coastal suburbia, which is probably vastly different from suburbia elsewhere.
On one side of my house, cars and people pass on the street.
On the other side, it is kangaroos who pass by.
The houses on my side of the street back onto natural bushland and within, a family of kangaroos reside. They roam from property to property as there are no fences between each.
I find their presence unique and beautiful, we share a space peacefully and happily.
This morning as Stanley and I watched them graze, I noticed a new addition, a young joey now makes them a family of four.
Please excuse the image quality…
