Sailing into Auckland Harbour on our Royal Carribean New Zealand cruise on the Ovation of the Seas, the rising sun painted a perfect picture of coloured sky over the city
four wheel driving over sand and rough tracks towards the Wilyabrup seacliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean. The track at times disappears into vast areas of deep sand and we are privileged to see birds and grass trees as well as reptiles and kangaroos.

Sunday morning brekky at White Elephant Cafe, with this magnificent view and a great menu, heaven
The early morning surfers were out and the joggers maintaining fitness before heading off to work, we always nod hello as they passed and the tourists at a more leisurely pace, like us, enjoying the moment, before heading back to the Margaret River Beach Resort for breakfast
It is so peaceful and quiet, you can hear the splash of the oars as they hit the water as we gently canoe Margaret River. we endeavour to follow without zig-zagging from one side of the river to the other, each of us learning very quickly how to paddle a canoe.
Gazebo water feature and bamboo garden lagoon at Wagga Botanic Gardens, Monday Landscape Photo of the Day
It was easy to see why this spot was chosen, it was pretty, tranquil and in the heat of summer, lovely and cool.

Darwin is a city of extremes. Beautiful sunsets, strong rich colours in its beaches and foreshores, incredible lightning displays from the summer storms, (I promise myself to visit in the wet season to photograph them)
We stayed in Niagara Falls a couple of days and each day, we would wander down just to check if this magnificence was still there, the sheer power and strength and volume of water flowing over the Falls is awesome.
