BLOG PAUSE - Off To The Beach


Hope To Meet Up With Some Of
These Guys


And These Guys

Also Hope To Meet Up With
When I first starting blogging.. I'd often see the title 'BLOG PAUSE' floating around the Scandinavian blogs... I've just been waiting for the opportunity to say that myself!! Yes I'm off on a trip.. Just a short one.. but I do have a history of extending my breaks whilst away... so you never know.. For now, I hope you like my shots of the beach here at home.. Hopefully I will come back with shots from sunny Queensland..
With a little luck will also meet up with someone who is a friend to many a blogger...
I'll let you ruminate on that one!!!

I know I've been a slack blogger this week.. A touch of flu and severe electrical storms have kept me offline.. So I've missed catching up with you all.. Will try and make some rounds before I head off in the next couple of days..
Until Then
