No Show Snow

No sign of the hoped-for snow over the weekend as the wet and mostly grey weather continued. The district is starting to look quite wet in most places and the run-off into the creeks and streams is building nicely for the rest of the year. Another small cascade on the Bo Peep Creek here followed by one of my district trees that, year by year, is losing its branches and will soon be little more than the trunk.

Leighton Battery.. The Tunnels.



Here's one for the WW2 buffs out there. I am fascinated by that era, by the enduring defiance of the British not to give in. We visited Leighton Battery Heritage Site on Saturday to find that the tunnels were thankfully only open on Sundays for guided tours. I own up to feeling much relief, as fascinated as I am my fear of enclosed spaces would have stopped me going down.. pretty pathetic when you think of the conditions endured during both World Wars and every war since. The history of the site here is a good read. We can only hope that the men/women today who sit in their positions of power playing war games consider long and hard before sending any more young men and women out to fight in their names. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

Two Cities..


We weren't there for the views but it was impossible not to be distracted, especially when you can see two cities from one spot! Standing atop Buckland Hill to the left the mechanical giraffes in Fremantle Harbour and to the right just visible over the tree tops Perth..


Below a clue as to why we were there.. fascinating stuff! Can you see there is the slight shadow of a ship out to sea directly in firing line, thankfully it's 2018 and not 1942, huge clue :) Show you tomorrow. Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

Just when you run out of summer outfit inspiration, Sienna Miller is spotted in yet another enviable look. Shockingly though, you can actually find this budget-friendly piece. She carried a graphic tote, as well as her daughters backpack, while sporting a baby blue Mango gingham dress in the shape of now. She stayed on trend, as always, with acetate sunglasses and a pair of mustard colored, block-heeled shoes. We're taking notes, Sienna.

Going Up!


Reflections of the cranes beavering away around Elizabeth Quay in one of the glass facades along the Esplanade. The buildings are leaping skywards at a frightening pace, the shot directly below taken two and half months ago at the beginning of March, the last shot a few days ago.. will have to record this view each time I go into the city to see the progress.. will reserve judgement until it's fini :) How is a person supposed to get a new winter header shot when the sky looks like this 🌞 Hope you have a wonderful weekend, take care and stay safe..


The Easy, Breezy Summer Look Were Copying This Season

Not all outfit planning requires tossing shirts, linen pants, and sneakers out of your closet in search of that “perfect look.” Sometimes, it’s as easy as 3 pieces; an A-line maxi dress in a light fabric, circle crossbody, and crisp white sneakers. Done and done.

Timeless Embellishments

The post Timeless Embellishments appeared first on Advanced Style.

The Great Outdoors.. Room with a View.



 It's been a while since we've walked around Lake Yellagonga about ten minutes from home, usually starting the walk at the same point, Perry's Cottage, last seen here under a different sky. A few days ago that same sky was thunderous but we were lucky, after walking for an hour and a half we made it back to the car juuuust as the first drops fell :) The lake is starting to fill up after the recent rains, lots of water birds flying in, 120 species of birds have been recorded in this area, I won't wait so long before I visit again. Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

A difficult decision!



After taking these shots shots in Fremantle Harbour we zipped over to Freo's town square to take some pics, maybe for the last time, of the two magnificent Moreton Bay Fig trees that have been sitting in Kings Square for over a hundred and twenty years, branches spread out over St. John's Church. They are not well! Palliative care or the chain saw seems to be the difficult decision for the  Fremantle council, but so concerned about local backlash, the tree below the iconic Freo Christmas tree for many years, the council is appealing for public opinion. If you are interested to see exactly how much effort the council has put in over the past few years, and are prepared to continue if the public so demands, have a read here, really interesting.. will be keeping an eye on this one. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. If you had to, what would you vote for? P.p.s. thanks for the tip-off Sue 🌳
