Polly - 4 months

What a delight to have Tamsin, John and Polly visiting from Melbourne. 
I receive lots of photos and videos via e-mail and talk on Skype but it is lovely to have cuddles, smiles and play baby games. 
Polly has such a sweet little personality and is very alert, taking in all her surroundings. She is getting much stronger on her tummy and is nearly rolling over so it won't be long before she will be on the move.

6 Months

Claire is six months old this month. Time has flown by so quickly and she is developing into an interesting little character. At the moment she is rolling over all the time and at last has worked out how to roll back however it seems to be a continuous rolling action which sees her crossing the carpet to the Christmas presents around the tree and all that crunchy paper.

The Sails are Back

The sails on the wharf have been absent for quite a while due to damage in high winds. Now they are back just in time for the festive season. Sunrise this morning was very festive ;-)) There is still a lot of cloud around which in this case coloured nicely at dawn before the sun slipped behind them to produce a grey day. Maybe it is a premonition of the heat to come as the forecast for Christmas day is 42 C.

True Aussie Flavour....

As part of my role as photographer for the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden I am currently taking photos of the newest refreshment; Lemon Myrtle, Quondong (Wild Peach) and Wild Lime ice-cream.
There are many new products available in the Arid Smart shop so I have also been taking pics of these  as well as the new outdoor furniture. 
The next task is to take images of  cheese platters but we are waiting for the wooden platters and new china and glassware to arrive before this goes ahead.
Another new product is a calendar which features many of my images. This compliments the postcards and cards which have been selling well.
