Skyspace by James Turrell

If you're ever in Canberra, be sure to check out James Turrell's permanent installation 'Skyspace' at the National Gallery of Australia. It's apparently best to see it sunrise or sunset, as you see the space change, as the light moves. We were there in the middle of the day, and it was still beautiful.

Day trip.

Last month Polo and I did a day trip to Canberra (Capital City of Australia and about 3.5hours from Sydney). We made a trip to see the James Turrell exhibition and have a nice lunch at the swanky new Hotel Hotel.
It was a stunning day in Canberra, it was lovely to have some time together to enjoy art and great food.

Last swim...

I took my last swim, just last month. It was just me and one other in the water. It was beautiful.

Cook Park, Orange

My sister and I drove to Orange (3.5 hours drive from Sydney) in April for an extended family get together. 
Whilst we were there, we visited this pretty little park - Cook Park. 
Here are some pictures from the Begonia and Fern Houses. So pretty.

The Incinerator, Willoughby

We try to explore new places in Sydney on a regular basis. The other weekend, we drove over the Harbour Bridge to check out an exhibition and grab a coffee at The Incinerator, Willoughby. 

Believe it or not this was a sewerage plant designed by American architect Walter Burley Griffin who was also the original of Canberra, Australia's Capitol City. The bottom photo is a public artwork by Sydney artist and architect Richard Goodwin. It beautifully compliments the original building, which is now a beautiful cafe and art space. Worth a visit.

Mornings with Teddy

Teddy has always been an early riser.. I'm slowly getting used to it. 
The morning light in our flat is lovely and always makes me extra glad that I'm up and experiencing it. 
Although I wouldn't say no to an uninterrupted sleep-in :)

An Afternoon in Autumn

A weekday afternoon at the beach. Lovely and quiet, with not many people around.

Love the colours and tones in these photos.
