The Life Aquatic – Pt I

The Life Aquatic – Pt I

Weekend adventures are the best.

When I travel back to NSW for work, I make sure I spend time enjoying the beautiful region of the Clarence Valley with my family and friends.

This weekend back home was spent out on the mighty river.

We trekked out nice and early, passing houses full of people waking in their beds.

The boat ramp was swarming with little fishies, dancing above the water to get a break from the thick muddy waters below.

We headed North, passing ducks and reed beds scattered along the edges.

Because I don’t have a death wish, I didn’t operate any of my cameras whilst actually paddling or not somehow moored in the river. We timed it right in the middle of the tide going out, so I managed to beach myself juuuust enough on the little sandbank we visit to be able to take some shots mid-river.

As the morning stretched in to the day, the sky and the sun completely changed. The colours of the clouds foretold the growing storm in the distance, throwing up pinks and orange hues as bright as the earlier sunrise.

Because of the current muddy composition of the river, fish were constantly jumping in and out around us.

Our phones stayed snug in their waterproof pouches, and we documented as we paddled.

Look at that colouring. Amazing.

 

Did you get out and explore on the weekend?

More photos to come.

Rainy Day Mountain Run – Pt II

Because it’s Easter Sat and everyone will be out and about with family of friends and enjoying this amazingly fresh weather, I thought I’d put up a picture heavy post to get you in to the season.

These are the rest of my shots from my Bello trip up in to the mountains at the beginning of this week.

Have a scroll, then go and enjoy your holiday break !

Summer Mountain Hike – Pt III

Summer Mountain Hike – Pt III

Remember my trip up to the mountains on that 40+ degree day?

When we reached the end of the trail, the soft smell of water and loud cheers of delight over took our senses, and we raced down the final descent to join in the fun.

The shade was amazing, the water refreshing, and the hike well worth it.

We stripped down to our swimmers and ventured in.

Because of the lack of rain, the usually heavy waterfall drop was at almost a trickle. This didn’t stop kids and adults having fun jumping in from the rock face and swimming under the steady stream below.

It was hard work to stay afloat in the fresh water, but it was so worth it.

I’m pretty glad that Summer is over and the days are getting cooler, but I did have some great times in the sun.
