JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Australia Day!

I can't remember celebrating Australia Day when I was young....perhaps we did...I just can't remember, but certainly Australians are becoming more patriotic and Australia Day is now celebrated robustly.
When we lived in "the bush" Australia Day was spent at the local waterhole for a day of water ski-ing with our friends.  They were great days where we swam, skied and dare I say, drank and ate too much and most usually ended up back at our place for an impromptu BBQ.  Ahhh!  Those were the days!
Today we spent a quiet day at home and after lunch we decided to head to Port for a swim, or should I say, hubby swam and I watched.  We go to the Sheraton Mirage Country Club for our swim.  It costs  us next to nothing and we usually have the place to ourselves!  Win!  Apart from that it is also a lovely place to be on a hot summers day.
Happy Australia Day everyone!
The entrance to the lap pool

Hubby doin' his laps

At lap 79 it looks like he is saying "please God let this be the last"!

I was content to lay back on the lounge and let hubby do all the hard work!

We had the place to ourselves…..

….as is usual!

The foyer of the country club….yess….all marble…..Pixie Skase really knew how to do it!

And the entrance to the Club…yesss. marble pillars

All the golf buggies hooked up to their batteries for overnight charge.
