Coffee & Cake .......


~   Muratti Cakes at Prospect  ~
 
Beach walking has given way to nattering with friends
in little coffee corners and this is my very favourite.

Dripping With red Geraniums ...


~   Marina Pier  Hold-Fast Shores   ~


I love these window boxes of blood red geraniums
which surround the Marina Pier 
 They add a touch of colour and luxury to the blue and white.

This pic was taken on my trusty Samsung mobile and as you can see
a bit out of focus but it was one of those days when I asked myself
Why didn't I bring my camera!!

Milder Days ... Cooler Nights ......


 
Autumn has softly entered our lives here in Adelaide
with it's lovely touch of cool
Our roses are fewer but deeper in colour
Our days are shorter but milder 
Our cappuccino with croissant tastes
that little bit better.
 
I guess that's why I love it.

Blue Skies .... Golden Fields .....




~   Poonindie   ~
 
"Core of the heart my country
her pitiless blue sky"

Structures age and decay
but our beautiful blue skies
remain constant.

Pew With A View ........



St Cyprians Church  ~
 
I love peeking inside this quaint little church
where wonderful cathedral glass windows
distort greenery and masses of deep amber roses and canna lilies
 flourishing in the warmth of the mid-day sun.

Pure Blue ..........


 
 
When you arise in the morning
think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive
to think ~ to enjoy ~ to love

Love-Lock Bridge ........


University Footbridge   ~
 
Our University footbridge has become somewhat of a love-lock bridge
with hundreds of little padlocks engraved with the sweetest sayings
like "locked together forever"
 
 
 
Sweethearts lock their token to the railings
take their pic in front of the padlock and then
toss the key into the river as a symbol of their undying love.
Aint that sweet!!

Skywatching over Henley .......


 
Sometimes I like to mess with my photos and use a bit of texturing
this doesn't always give a better effect but creates a very different mood

Breakfast Near The Bridge ......



~ Every picture tells a story ~

After a reasonably brisk walk around the river
trying to whittle down a few kilos and tone up non-existent muscles
I inadvertently passed by the "Riverside CafĂ©"
dropped in for coffee then of course added almond-meal cake
Would you like cream madam? 
as the French would say "pourquoi pas"  
Why not!!
