A couple of days ago now, but our regular Sunday walk on the beach took place in the vicious cold and got hit by icy rain. On the plus side, the lighting got pretty spectacular. Watching my sister struggle with her umbrella looked like a shot from a movie!

Today Viv and I went on an extended beach walk to soak up this late summery spell. And the beach was definitely the place to be! Packed but still gorgeous. On our way back we decided to eat back all the calories burnt and then some, with ice cream from a new trendy place 🍨
Here we’re only at the very tail end of the weather system that’s brought floods to the eastern seaboard, but it’s still been a gloomy and wet few days. Today’s been the worst – cold, and I got drenched in my 5min walk from work to the train station 😠 Photo from the weekend.
Gizmo has seemed a bit subdued today, especially after Gidget hissed at him when he just wanted to play (twice), but he livened up when he reached the beach. Unfortunately, he got himself so filthy there that he needed a B-A-T-H when we got home… and now he feels traumatised.
🐈 My parents and sister paid me their usual Sunday visit yesterday, and for once, Gidget came out and accepted pets from them! In recent times she’s spent their visits hiding in a cupboard 🙀
🐶 Then my sister, Viv and I walked Gizmo to the beach. In the 28°C weather Gizmo immediately flopped into the water, and then he enjoyed an impromptu conference of little dogs 😅 I know he thinks every walk is amazing, but this one was especially amazing!!
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 🐶
For day 9 of Micro.blog’s photoblogging challenge, the prompt is muddy. It’s not currently a muddy time of year, but in the winter, Gizmo loves to roll around and get filthy at the beach 🐶
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.
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 🐶
