Rosedale mornings

Every holiday follows its own rhythms, even if it's in the same place as you've been many times before. People, moods, and if it's by the ocean, the beach and sea itself are different each time.
This holiday it was time to paint the house, and we're still trying to care for our health a little more. So, most mornings, Piero and I were up early. We tended to start the day with a walk, then come home for breakfast, and then get stuck into painting the house. The 'Fibro Majestic' was in dire need of an outside paint job, and it got the works. So, lots of morning shots of the beach this time around, at least from the early part of the holiday. After the painting was done, I tended more towards later afternoon!

The Creek

Saltwater Creek, 6:17am
It reminds me of something Southern (America) Gothic ... all it needs is Spanish moss.
Taken from the footbridge, which we call 'Pooh Sticks Bridge', cos when the water is flowing, it's perfect for playing Pooh Sticks from.
