beach cottage on tour
Sat 12th, Mar, 2011
G’day lovely Beach Cottagers! How you cooking?
Oh I am good, very good, and checking in with you from Northern NSW…we are on a short break up here and so far it’s been pretty good….nothing better when the flight, the car, the accommodation, the weather and the beach all turning out to be collectively oh about 9 outta 10.
We have been down to the beach and spent a lovely time down there in the ocean…delightful…oh the sea felt soooooo nice…just warm enough but cool enough if you know what I mean…and the water up here seems to feel differently to the water down where we are…I body boarded with the kids…something about catching a wave with your kiddos laughing beside you..
I thought you might like to see just how beautiful it is here…the light was sooooo bright, everything almost tinged with a white hue…I tried to capture this, but I don’t think anyone can quite capture the Australian light, whatever anyone might tell you..it’s kinda bright and magical and strong..
The place we are staying in marketed itself as ‘beach style’ …this is um a different kinda beachy to my kinda beachy…I find it interesting to see the different influences..
…this has stripes…for sure…loud, strong, statement stripes
…the BC Crew have declared that they want to move into an apartment just like this..all modern, swish and swanky…
…the ocean is down the end of the road…the roaring sound of the waves is lovely…
this is in the bedroom…I am wondering what you think about beachy black???
with this at the end of the road
…the bi-folds are real indoor/outdoor living…these are what every single person who I spoke to advised on doors for our old cottage…here they are lovely but take up just so much room on this balcony that we had to juggle all the furniture to the other side and push the sunbeds up to the wall…
sea views to the left and ahem everything else is very toytown…
just loving the colours in the sky and the pale blues in the water….
cushion plumping…an occupational hazard of mine I think…how come I’m the one tidying up here too?
…later…doing coffee Northern NSW style…..and having pictures taken by a young one …that won’t be happening again for a while ;-) note to self : facial.
hotel room chic….black and white and red on the bed…and a faux leather screen…yowzas..I didn’t know you could buy faux leather screens in Freedom :-)
the BC Crew are loving this style…I have questions along the lines of ‘mum, do you still really like vintage?’
I preferred not to answer ;-)
Anyway I am so outta here…I have some beach lovin’ to do
See you around
p.s. BC Giveaway on the way baby…get ready to rumble
