weekend sneaky swims before breakfast
reluctant kids that don’t want to go, changing their minds
friends that make you laugh
pictures that make you think
words that get shifted around until they fall into their ‘slotted’ place
and standing up for things that you believe in, (you should always do that.)
What are you loving this weekend?
[“Often life’s pleasures pass us by simply because we don’t take a moment to focus on them… Make a point of noticing everyday something that uplifts your spirit or tickles your heart… Stop to breathe in the joy of this moment and then tell someone about it. Share your joy and revel in it. When your joy is savoured, and then shared, it is magnified…” ROBIN GRILLE]
Simply beautiful photos and words Brydie x
Thanks Jane, have a lovely week.
Gorgeous shots! You’re rivalling Max Dupain there Brydie. I see postcards in your future… or art prints…
Oh, and your words are *always* slotted into the best place. Lovely!
And how cool would that be! Max Dupain is an incredible compliment thank you Saskia. Even a grain of similar sand, and I’ll happily take that. 🙂

I do love an early morning swim – not in an indoor pool but out in the ocean; and now’s the perfect time for early morning swims xx
indoor pools just aren’t quite the same are they. I adore this time of year for early swims.
This really reminded me of my days living in Bronte, Sydney. I loved heading to the beach every morning … As I did in Perth, living by the beach …. I live a bit further away now so have to actually hop in a car. No complaints, still close enough. For some reason, I keep thinking you live in Adelaide but I’m seeing photos of Sydney. I just looked you up on Instagram and I see it’s Clovelly (I’m only presuming that’s in Sydney and there’s not one in Adelaide too). It’s messing with my head but I really love your photos!!! They’re stunning!!
Nope, definitely not Adelaide. Although I would like to visit one day. Sydney for the past 16 years and for a tiny smidge longer.
Bronte is gorgeous, I’d live there in a heart beat. I adore the community feel to that suburb, (and my favourite place to eat happens to be there. Can’t go wrong really.)
That was in my renting days when I went there as an 18 year old or not quite … I hate to think what the prices are like now. I was in Sydney for 5 years I think? Oh my goodness, I’ve just realised that was 30 years ago!!!! Now that’s showing my age! It brings back wonderful memories of living with my dear friend there who passed away about this time last year. Taken waaaay too soon, especially for the fact she had four beautiful children still growing up and needing their Mum who’s no longer here. A very healthy girl into organics, vegetarian and clean living. Go figure! … Yep, they were fun days and I just loved walking everywhere, and the swims. I just loved that it was so close. Yep, I lived in Adelaide too when I was 10 for a year. A lovely place too but not long enough to really have too many memories there.
Prices? Hideous, like gaspingly so. Makes it hard. The walking everywhere makes it easier though.
That’s really sad about your friend Brigette, enjoy those precious memories you have together. x
I think back then we probably paid about $80 for a two bedroom flat??? Can’t remember. A nice one too in a nice block. I know I NEVER appreciated the cost of living back then. it’s ridiculous now. It used to be cheaper in Perth that’s now ridiculous. Maybe now the mining boom is slowing down, it might make things a bit better … Yes, very sad. VERY precious memories indeed … It was certainly lovely making new friends and seeing old friends at the funeral last year. She brought so many people together again …
