A lovely sunday hike out in Ellis Brook Valley with the Sixty Foot Falls and Quarry walk loop. Nice that we could take the pooches ...Roger and Rusty were in their element sniffing, wrestling and racing around.
Lucky to get some blue sky for parts and the rain to hold off. Little Beth was snug as a bug sleeping curled up on Amy for most of the walk.
Todd and I were over the moon to be asked to be god parents of little B. A beautiful girl who we already love so much!

We made our way south for a long weekend with the Stones and Crabtrees!
Such a beautiful weekend away, exploring the south - Kojonup, Bluff Knoll and Bremer Bay. It's always so nice to spend a weekend with friends ... conversations are able to go from ebb to flow and so many things can be discussed.
Farming families are always the perfect hosts ... warm beds, endless cups of tea and good food!

Some more summer moments ..


Late evenings at the beach watching the sunset. Often with a bushfire the sunsets are even more spectacular. Very bittersweet.

Rusty had his operation ... and nearly drove us mad with the bucket on his head for two whole weeks.

Brunch on the weekend with the Balfours, watching basketball and using our new buffet.

Linen napkins from the wedding all freshly washed and pressed and sent out to special people who helped with the wedding day.


"The pines" ... a local park we visit that Rusty loves.


Water after the beach .. what a spoilt dog!!
