Gold Coast

West in a day

Kelly and I went out to Stanthorpe for the day, for her birthday, getting up at 3am to make it out there early (it's a 3.5 hour drive from Murwillumbah). It was a cool old town, although it felt like it skipped a beat for an old area. We went to a few op shops, walked the streets in the crisp 6 degree air and ventured out to Girraween National Park to check out the crazy granite country. Finished up there with a slice of Apple pie at Sutton's Farm and headed back to make Dinner at Mavis' Kitchen in Uki, a chill 4.5 hour drive back through the north (Ipswich).

The fog sets in

It's always a nice drive along the old highway through Northern NSW, but even more special in Autumn, when the morning fog makes its way over the hills of Duranbah and smother the fields to the west, all the way out to Murwillumbah and beyond. I stopped to take a few snaps this morning on my Nikon, because you never know when it might end. I cherish these days where we can still breathe fresh air and find space. Something that future generations will struggle to find. I wonder what this area will be in 50 years, or if we will realise that the wealth is in the fruits that this land provides.

Gold Coast randoms

A bunch of random shots from around the Gold Coast during summer. Trying to get some of these unfiltered photos online, before I lose them one day.

Tbear's Bucks

Had a great weekend at TBear's bucks. I haven't got around to posting it but this is the stubby cooler design that I got printed for the weekend. Everyone had to keep this on their beers for the duration of the party, or if you got caught out, there were consequences.
