I'm on a road trip this weekend to visit my daughter who's moved almost 1000kms from home to mid western NSW - that's about 5 hours west of Sydney. It's a long drive but hey, I spent most of it in Scotland (well France, actually) with Jaime and Clare and other times I've just marvelled at my beautiful country. It made me feel happy and very very lucky!
I love the way the light falls on the land during different stages of the day in the vastness of the outback.
From early morning light -
To the bright light of full day.
I love windmills.
And grain silos. And road signs.
My hubby loves to snack on road trips while I try not to.... It took me 4 days to succumb to the bright napalm orange of the humble Twistie. But it didn't really feel like a road trip until I had been seduced by the intoxicating carbohydratic (yes, not a word) goodness.
We visited the zoo. These monkeys made me happy.
And this Galapogus tortoise made the romance writer in me thrill. Looks like we all love a little bit of petting, right?
And if that wasn't enough, this was my lunch view yesterday, lazing around under lovely shady trees listening to the drowsy hum of bees, eating cheese and drinking wine.
And my two travelling companions always make me happy. Tink and Wonder Woman - the soft and the hard of me.
How did you spend your Easter weekend? Was it lazy and indulgent like mine or was it a busy family affair?
Got anything making you happy at the moment?
