By the sea shore

Next stop on our trip was Jervis Bay. The colours of the ocean, the sand and the scrub were absolutely incredible. We wandered around town and did a boat tour of the bay. The guides gave us a few fun facts about the place (many of which I'm sure are somewhat less than true). My favourite was that the guy the town Huskisson was named for, was an important English fellow who was the first person ever to be killed by a train. At a ceremony to celebrate a new steam train line, he walked onto the track without looking both ways, and that was the end of him. Look both ways kids!

Sit and be still

Ian and I escaped the city for a few days before we started back at Uni. We made a few stops along the South Coast, popping into op shops (or thrift stores - if you like?) in order to furnish our new apartment. 

First stop was the Kiama Blowhole. But alas, it did not blow. 

You mightn't believe it, but is was incredibly windy. These photos make it look still and serene. I love the way photography can transform a memory with visual trickery. I wonder how many false memories I have collected by flipping through photo albums and recounting the tales they signify?

Show your face

These past few weeks have been crazy madness. Ian and I have moved to our new apartment (woo hoo!) and have been dashing around frantically buying furniture and unpacking boxes. Yesterday we spent an epic 7 hour stint at Ikea - thank goodness for those Swedish meat balls! Any day now we will be hooked up with internet access and then hopefully things might return to something resembling normal. I have a bunch of photos that are yet to escape my memory card, so soon there will be posting aplenty.

dress - glebe markets
shoes - Django and Juliette
