A busy Saturday..

It's been a while so I thought it time for some pics! On Saturday morning I dropped te hound dog off at the RSPCA so his aunties could have a good catch-up and I could have a quick dash down the coast for the opening of an exhibition of South Coast photographers, a birthday party at Braidwood and most importantly - a few minutes standing on sand, in the sea. It's been about 18 months since I last got to the beach.

We got to Braidwood in the late afternoon, just in time to see the 4 wk old puppies (see below) and for me to see some of Victoria, the birthday girl's incredible artwork in situ in the gardens of the historic Bedervale, where she lives and works.

Jude (below) with Paloma, proud mother of a litter of ten wriggling, wormy little babes. I fell in love with Paloma in all of maybe, five seconds. We drank wine and ate Arabian Love Cake under a sky full of stars while a fire kept us warm. I met some really lovely people, many of them established artists whose work I look forward to seeing. I felt very lucky to be in such good company.

 These last few pics, including the postboxes and the wonderful shadows in Bodalla, were taken with my new phone. New phone! Puppies! Sculptural installations in beds of forget-me-nots! What a beautiful week it's been....
