‘I’m sorry I’m not available to answer your call right now, … please leave your message at Shell beach. Western Australia.
Gone on a family walkabout in the wonderfull lands of Oz
More fun, more adventure, more laughter.
ABOUT SHELL BEACH
This aptly named beach is found on the drive into Shark Bay and you won’t find sand here – just billions of these tiny Shark Bay cockle shells reaching depths of up to 10m and stretching for more than 70km.
In the early 1900s, shells from the beach were quarried, cut into blocks and used to construct a number of buildings in nearby Denham.
When you #WanderOutYonder along the Coral Coast Highway, stop to explore Shell Beach then keep your eyes peeled for shell block buildings around town.
After all of the hype, I’m sure that there is no-one on this earth who would have missed that phenomenal lunar eclipse last night. Is it just me? but I felt that the entire cosmos was hypnotised, in the Heaven’s slip stream.
It kind of reminded me back to 1969, when I was a young kid at school and we were all gathered on mass to watch the first moon landings. Do you remember that?
As you’ve probably gathered by now, I enjoy looking at life, from different perspectives and today is no different.
FROM OUR BACK GARDEN
I’m one of the lucky people who live in Western Australia, from our view point; The sky was set on fire at sunset, then, our world turned black, as the moon vanished. Thankfully, we were able to tune into a live casting with the Sydney Observatory.
RUNNING RINGS AROUND THE MOON
Just when we thought this magnificent paranormal show was over;
Hubby shouted, ‘Come outside, you won’t believe your eyes’
I ran out to take one last look at the night sky and breathe in the awe and the beauty of the universe, where, I was bedazzled to see our sky, lit up by an extra-ordinary halo of iridescent light around our moon.

Sighs … to me, in that moment, that WAS the pinnacle of the whole extraordinarily, super, mystical and powerful performance.
I’ll leave all of the professional photographers to work their magic moon momenta’s, as in this image captured my most favourite photographer on earth, Hirsty, who lives in Sydney Australia.
LIMITED EDITION PRINTS NOW AVAILABLE of last night’s rare Super Moon Lunar Eclipse over Sydney capturing all her beautiful phases, from a bright orange glow on the horizon through to the blood red moon during the full eclipse. To secure one of the few remaining prints please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers Hirsty
I HAVE MY OWN VISION
…I will live quietly in awe, with my own precious back garden memories.

THE WORLDS OLDEST STORY
Tracking the Song Lines, with the Seven Sisters, up to the Pleiades Star Cluster
Tracking the Seven Sisters features the world’s highest resolution six-metre-wide travelling dome under which visitors are immersed in images of Seven Sisters rock art from the remote Cave Hill site in South Australia, as well as animated artworks and the transit of the Orion constellation and the Pleiades star cluster.
In general, the moon is connected to our emotional selves. Many of the full moon effects on human behaviour and emotions are hidden deep within our subconscious. So when the moon is full, it emits energy that greatly affects us all personally as well as collectively.
This Full Moon falls in the sign of Virgo, something which can ring alarm bells for some. While Earth Virgo offers warm and comforting energy, the more unconventional and emotional souls out there can tend to feel overwhelmed by Virgo’s notoriously critical nature. As the energetic peak of the current lunation, tensions will be running high and the undercurrents and themes since the last New Moon will come to the surface. As such, it’s important to be in charge of the energy you choose to invite in during this time. 27.2.2021
The moon’s effects date back to legends and mythology of ancient civilisations.
Top Image: Kevin Healing. The Staircase to the Moon is a natural phenomenon caused by the rising of a full moon reflecting off the exposed mudflats in Roebuck Bay, Broome, WA at extremely low tide, to create a beautiful optical illusion of a stairway reaching to the moon. This spectacular sight occurs from March through to November.

“Lets go exploring” our daughter said,
with a huge whoop of excitement.
“There’s a dirt track, just up ahead”
into the unknown, we were invited.
I’d been curious about these 'off' roads,
what secret surprises, they'd reveal, to see.
You know, where sedans are forbidden to go,
because city cars couldn’t drive, easily.
Gatekeeper nods, with outstretched hand,
beckoning us forwards, through rusty old gate.
As we entered, into a desert of no mans land,
anticipating “how long our expedition will take”
Inching slowly over corrugated track,
our destination, 80kms in the distance.
That dusty, bumpy road, was no easy task,
we had to remain steadfast and persistent.
“This was a bad idea” hubby griped,
stranded in the wild, eerie, remote and barren.
‘What if we have to camp out here overnight,
something beastly and frightful, could happen”
Sandstorms whisked, around and ahead,
gnarly shrubs, laced bright yellow and grey,
Escorted by our small convoy; we were led.
amongst windswept lands, being driven astray.
At last! our journey's end, was in sight,
socially distancing, in true Ozzie style.
At the heart of Gnaraloo we found paradise,
a hell of a ride, but happily ending, with smiles.

Gnaraloo is a working pastoral station, adjacent to the Ningaloo Marine Park, 150 kilometres north of Carnarvon, in Western Australia. It may be some of the areas most uncharted territory. This is Australia’s surfing mecca. Legendary for its fishing, waves and wind.
