This mornings weather proved quite a challenge on the blogging front as we were surrounded with thick fog that stayed put until late morning- the joys of Winter.
After the fog lifted and on our way to the airport to collect my sister-in-law we made a slight detour to the river at Evandale. I spent the first twelve years of my life in this area and it holds many memories from growing up at the airport , my father worked for the Department of Civil Aviation , to attending primary school in the historic town of Evandale.
The river behind me was the local swimming hole, although my memories of swimming there are somewhat mixed as I still clearly recall a scary experience of getting into a spot of bother and being rescued by another swimmer- maybe this is why I am not too fond of swimming today.
Summer or Winter , black and white is one of my favourite combinations and today was no exception.The black base of Paula Ryan knit and my still favourite black Moyuru skirt was topped with this cropped jacquard print jacket that was a thrift shop find a few years ago. As much as I like the little jacket it really isn’t warm enough for many Winter days.
The black and white called for pops of red on this somewhat dreary day, so my vintage red cap, black, white and red Preen sunnies , red Ara booties and black and red gloves came out to play.
On a totally different note we are in the very first stages of planning a trip to Cuba next year, possibly April or May.This has been on our places to visit wish list for quite a while. A bit of a back story to our wish list , after John’s retirement we both made lists of places we both wished to visit or revisit . We have quite quite varied interests between us so not all were the same but Cuba certainly fascinated both of us. Mind you it is not a straight forward country to get to from Australia. There are a few different options , entering via Chile, Mexico, Canada which seems silly to us or the USA ( some restrictions) but we are exploring our options. I always enjoy the research and planning stages of any travel plans.
Hope everyone is having a good week so far and enjoying Summer or Winter sunshine.
