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!!

Writing thank you cards with fresh coffee.

A very spontaneous long weekend down in Denmark - and a new car to test out! Bit of a whirlwind getting it all happening but we got there and hit the road early Saturday morning. We are so lucky to have friends scattered all about the south and north west, willing to let us stay at their places.
Alana invited us to her parents house in Denmark and we jumped at the offer.
The cloudy skies cleared each afternoon and we visited Greens Pool, Elephant Rocks, Conspicuous Cliffs and West Cape Howe. Such a green and peaceful part of the world.

A trip away down south in January as we usually do. This time poor Jo was sick so her and Ash couldn't make it. Brad, Nerida, Todd and I enjoyed a few nights right on the water in Dunsborough. Learning what it's like to go away with two dogs who dont reaaally get along and facing a dog beach!

Beautiful mornings walking on the sandbar, Nerida carrying our little neice or nephew and realising this will probably be our last trip away as just a four!

Weather turned towards the end of the weekend which made for some windy walking at Rabbits.
