To my defence i only saw the sign on the way back!

Very cool short cut to the beach and Pier.




Lake Daylesford, Victoria

Sunrise at Lake Daylesford, Victoria
The glow of a beautiful morning with the warm sun, colouring the world around me.

A great way to start my day.


Lake Daylesford, La Petite Jetty



My landmark from Lake Daylesford

The Little Jetty was what i saw at first light and came back for it on my way out back to the car. Super sweet.

The weather was perfect, unfortunately no clouds.

I found my yellow

For those that have been following my Facebook public page know that I didn’t like yellow for a long time, in 2015 I found my yellow! Recently recieved this yellow flower, I forgot its name, today I received my first Orchid, I feel a still life coming on!

But let’s get one thing straight, the Lotus is stil my favourite, I love it’s meaning.

A perfect transition my Orchid has a yellow heart. I’m am going to name it, any suggestions?


Lake Daylesford, Victoria

Solo adventure this morning..I woke up at 4am, a couple of snuggles with my blanket before I decided to get up, packed my gear and off I went to Lake Daylesford.

New iPhone meant i had to listen to the same song over and over so my gps would work, U2 “You can’t leave where you are if you haven’t left” mmmm.

I have to say it was really creepy, my gps decided to take me through Rockbank, a quick stop for my egg and bacon Mcmuffin, can’t remember the last time I had one.

About 10 minutes before i arrived to Daylesford a Kangaroo decided to jump out in front of the car, sticking to 80km I slammed on the brakes, waited for the bang! He was to the left of me by then and he just kept hopping away into the darkness, I mean really we live in a massive country!!!

So when you see those signs about roos take them seriously, no mucking around in Australia!

It was still dark when I arrived, I couldn’t see the path and quite frankly a little scarred of the boogy  man, it didn’t take long for first light, wondered down and around for about 500 meters and there was the jetty, annoyed they have that horrible fencing, do they not consider photographers come out to play and not  don’t feel like cloning it out.

Met a few people today, mostly holiday makers, a little chat, I really love how people always share other locations close by.

Definitely will be back at some stage, a different season perhaps.

Another off my list, until second round 😉

Some Geese on the side of the road was the icing, they were waiting and when they realised I was stopping for them over the road they went, very sweet.

On the way home I noticed my petrol was real low, meh, I just made it. Spur of the moment trips, i never check!

I could do with a few hours sleep right about now, signing off, have a great weekend.



The Chicory Kiln, Bacchus Marsh

This brick kiln, located near Bacchus Marsh, was built around 1885 for Messrs. Pearce Brothers, and was used for processing chicory roots, which once baked and ground are frequently used to complement or even wholly substitute coffee. The brick layer was J. F. Taylor, and carpentry was by Mr. Murphy. It was in operation for a relatively short period, being referred to 25 years later as an “unused chicory kiln” and “the old chicory kiln.” In the years following it was suggested that the building could be repurposed for tobacco leaf drying, fruit canning, or even housing an electricity plant. One wall contains advertising for Dr. Morse’s Indian Root Pills (“For the Liver”), with an older slightly different version of the ad showing through as the top coat of paint deteriorates. Today the area immediately surrounding the building is still used for agricultural purposes.
