I live between two houses — one north of Adelaide, one south.
Both are within walking distance of the beach.
Because of this, I often blog about coastal things: the sand and the sea.

The birds squabble and fight amongst themselves, honking and quacking and ruffling their feathers and bobbing beneath the water.

The water is reedy but clear …

Water always brings me a sense of peace.
