The walk today

Today the weather is beautiful, clear blue skies and I thought I would take the camera along so you could have a look at where we went walking. A comfortable pair of shoes is a must.
Around the Island there are a lot of great walking tracks that go around the coastline.
This track leads down to the picturesque Palm Beach and you can see the glistening sea below.

This little mouse did not run away and let us take a photo ~
I wonder if we will see a horse back rider, come out of Sleepy Hollow?

As you can see the azure sky and the water were amazing and it is days like this that makes it really great to be living here on the Island and enjoy all it has to offer.

Thanks for all the lovely comments and also to new readers and visitors.
I should be working on the lounge but it has been one of those weekends, that there have been other things that we have needed to do - hopefully next weekend might be better for getting some more done to the lounge.

I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend, full of sunshine and happiness.
I look forward to coming to visit you soon.
