Eek better get the sheets off the line, thanks for the head's up @Toots. It's been so hot (30) with gorgeous blue skies all day... it's so odd how the weather can change so quickly!

I believe that one of the modern forms of bravery is to say, OK I will start again from scratch.

Doing something new, learning new things requires great strength, great humility and great courage.

There is a little gully that is ok to take a dip, but it is bound by steep rocks, so have to be quite agile.

The beaches are  fairly safe from May to Sept, then the usual ooglies make an appearance.

Cheers, Bobj.

That is your fault Bob. Only yourself to blame. You could have picked anywhere in OZ to live.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

Must say though it's been a bit breezy the last couple of days, or is that just because we are on the coast?
