A gentle start

How did you spend your New Year?
Despite the unseasonably cool weather, we relaxed at a lovely little beachhouse near Apollo Bay, on Victoria's Surf Coast.











The surf was too wild for Gus to swim in the sea, so we spent a lot of time among the rockpools at the end of the beach.







Gus and Snoopy didn't mind the rain.









Our evenings were spent lounging in front of a crackling wood fire, with fine food and wine, and soft jazz.

Now that's how I like to start the year!

Such wonderfully expressive pictures, Juddie!!! I loved looking through them, and can't wait for more in 2009! Glad you and your family (including those incredibly stealable doggies!) are enjoying your surroundings...

Yes ... my husband has a slight hat addiction. He has many, many 50's-style winter and summer hats, as well as an ever-growing collection of 30's style caps for daywear and cycling. I like them though :-)
