Yesterday we got to bring Gizmo to the beach for the first time in a few weeks! Gizmo was loving it, charging around exploring every shrub, darting back and forth… he even got in a game of chasey with this other dog he met there. Great day 🐶

It’s day 8 of Micro.blog’s photoblogging challenge, which means today’s prompt is hope. My hope is that the various Australian states stop randomly closing their borders to each other, so I can return to Sydney and enjoy scenery like the below again without worry 😛

It was a warm day today, so Viv and I took a late afternoon walk to our local beach.

On our way home, we ducked into a bottle shop that’s only been open for a week or so. We wanted to check out their range of beers, and were pleasantly surprised – it’s really extensive!

Confronted with so much choice, in the end Vivian was the one who made the decision and went for this novelty lager.

a six-pack of beer cans, branded 'GET ON THE BEERS' by Bogan Brewery. A description on the rightmost can reads 'In these unprecedented times, Bogan Brewery reckons we can all agree on one thing… It's time to grab your mates and GET ON THE BEERS!

In the end, it was a pretty ordinary lager. But surely the sacrifice was worth it to give us an excuse to reminisce about this classic press conference moment by our state premier, and the months Victorians spent moaning, “Can we get on the beers yet?".

The dog beach was the place to be yesterday! Beautiful weather, and many many dogs. Gizmo certainly enjoyed himself 🐶

I realised I’ve been slacking on the photo posts lately, so here’s Gizmo a couple of weekends ago. It was quite a warm afternoon, so the second we reached the shoreline at the beach, he wasted no time dunking himself in the water!

Haven’t had the chance to walk down to the nearby beach lately, but I might have to plan on changing that soon, because it makes for some great views! Here are some pics I took back in early November.

Today was a humid, overcast day, but the wind was fairly still and we enjoyed a scenic walk at the local dog beach!
