Footprints in the sand

It has been quite a week for Ailsa and me with foot injuries. And what better place to illustrate feet than being on a beach in Australia, where bare feet results in lots of footprints in the sand.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Being barefoot in the sand is an idyllic scene, except in the extremes of an Aussie summer, when the sand is hot enough to fry an egg. 🙂
    Today is the first day of Spring here, and it feels like it. I hope you’re feeling better soon.

    1. Thank you LD. I am hoping to be barefoot on Cornish sands next year. Maybe not as hot as yours, but equally beautiful 😉 Happy spring!

    1. Ah, well, just got to get on with things as best as possible. I would like to visit a couple of gardens before they close for the winter though, so some fine, dry weather would be good!

    1. Oh, yes the piggy-back race looked to be a lot of fun. Aussies are so lucky that they can have such an outdoor lifestyle. We Brits cannot guarantee sunshine even in mid-summer 😦

    1. You have so many great beaches 🙂
      Ankle no longer swollen but I am not walking much on it so we’ll see how it goes when I do!

    1. Yay! Nice to have you back. I have missed you. Hope you had a great time and more sun than we have had here 😦 though I can’t grumble today. Foot almost back to normal, just a bit stiff and painful first thing.

        1. Got ‘can’t sleep’ syndrome now 🙂 I could use the extra hours for all the catching up but first I need to book Polish currency and Dad’s Special Assistance.
