on sunday we went for a nice country drive.
it was a beautiful, clear day though we could still feel the winter chill on the breeze.

we ended up at one of our favourite spots -
burgess park at christmas creek.

bradley, cody and beau

it was the perfect spot for beau to crack the whip
without having to worry about disturbing neighbours
it is very loud!

and, of course, boys will be boys

my favourite tree - queensland bottle tree

a part of the australian countryside
which can be quite treacherous in areas
not to mention being home to some of the deadliest snakes in the world

by late afternoon, dark clouds started setting in but
thankfully, no rain followed

and by the time we arrived home an hour later
we were able to watch a glorious sunset from the front of our house

all in all, we had a fabulous sunday despite feeling very tired by the time we got home

i hope you had some special moments during your weekend too?
feel free to share what you did in the comments link

love, light and peace

  2. Beautiful pics Serena! Love the bottle tree and the sunset is gorgeous!!
    Glad you had such a nice day with your family :)
    We went for a 'nice' drive yesterday in Dale's convertible and the fuel pump went out and we had to get towed by a friend to the repair shop. Good times. ha!

  3. olá,amiga...
    adorei seu blog suas fotos...

  4. Looks like a wonderful day, Serena! It being our Independence Day on July 4th, we watched fireworks from Washington, New York, and Boston on TV and listened to some great patriotic music.
    Love that bottle looks like some kind of cedar, is it? And that sunset is glorious!!

  5. Sigh. I want to live somewhere were you can have just short sleaves in the winter.

  6. Serena,

    Lovely photos of the countryside. Love all the greenery! That bottle tree is gorgeous and love that sunset picture. So happy you had a nice time. :)

  7. What beautiful shots!! I especially love the sunset one. Looks like your day was awesome!

  8. Such lovely pictures! Never saw bottle tree, ho interesting and sunset - beautiful!

  9. Hi Serena,
    Ooh, those pictures look like a great family day out.
    Hm, I can't wait to see how you paint that sunset! lol
    My guys and I went into the city to the boat show, out for a yummy dinner at The Meat & Wine Co. and stayed in a motel on Southbank for the night.
    Yes, bliss.

  10. Glad you guys had such a nice day and that the weather was so nice.

  11. the colours in the sky are gorgeous! I'd be walking around trying to spot all kinds of snakes, at a safe distance of course.

  12. Oh my, each photo is lovlier than the last. I have a deep affection for running water so I was sure the creek would be my favorite, but that sunset is exquisite.

  13. lovely pics Serena.... I'm in the neighbouring province at my sister's little farm this week.

    My special moments included a lot of work and sweating, but, it's always fun ...probably because it's different from my normal life in a big city..

    love the purples and pinks in the sunset..... ooooohhh.... beautiful....

  14. What a luscious sounding day, Serena!!! The snake part wouldn't be so great, but thankfully I hope none of those were seen!!! Hubby, daughter and I are driving about Florida seeing some places we have never seen before...just at a leisurely pace.
    Take care---Julie

  15. What lovely pics!
    The hillside reminds me of the journey we took through S Oregon over the weekend - fun to see different landscape! & the sunset & clouds - delightful!

    Glad you had a good day :)

  16. Thanks for letting me tag along on your wonderful "winter" excursion. Such beautiful scenery and a sunset for painters! Those special family days are precious. :)

  17. it looks like it was a wonderful day! hope you got to rest up a bit today.

  18. Oh Serena! Such lovely places! Such gorgeous photos! And the view outside your home? Stunning!

    This weekend was very low key and relaxing for me. Enjoying the weather. Buying watercolors and trying them for the first time. Reading. All the good stuff. :)

  19. What a lovely day for you all! That sunset is amazing!
