A New Year tradition for our family over the years has been a trip to Hobart, our states capital city,
for the annual Taste of Tasmania and to view the yachts that have just completed the Sydney to
Hobart Yacht race.Our eldest son now lives in Hobart , so the tables have turned, and now
instead of him coming with us we drive to visit him.I find it interesting how even when our children
are young adults they like to continue traditions started in their childhood.
Boys will be boys, father and son checking out boats for sale, I might add neither are sailors so this is
an exercise in wishful thinking. We are not a boating family but I guess it never hurts to look.
The maxi yacht in the background is Wild Oats X1 , this years winner of The Sydney to Hobart yacht race.
The yacht based on Hamilton Island has now won the race a record 8 times.
Reflecting the yachts mast in my black and white, both the pants and top are by a Japanese label,
Moyuru, that I have discovered in the past year.I really like the softness and shape of their garments
and their design approach of free expression and originality. Key words behind Moyuru`s philosophy
are Earth, Wind and Freedom.
I have added a little colour in my multi-coloured neclace and my bangle mix.
My old faithful orange bag is by Rachel Ruddick .
My hat has been in my collection for some time and was originally a pale green, a hard colour for me
to wear so I have made the change to black. I am quite pleased with the result.
A New Year , a time to reflect on the last year , an acceptance that life takes unexpected paths
at times and that many things are not under our control.A promise to myself to make the most
of each day and enjoy the company of family and good friends
On the wardrobe front, I plan to continue exploring the possibilities held within my existing wardrobe
and continue to discover new and interesting combinations. I also will continue my search for
interesting hats, particularly for the summer, as in Australia we are limited to either sun hats or
fancy race style hats. All suggestions very welcome.
On the blogging front I have hope to glean technical knowledge from my son and update some
aspects of my very basic layout. A plan to join Instagram on the horizon.
If nothing happens it means his busy social life took precedence, as it should at 24.
Wishing everyone a safe and peaceful
