Wednesday 9th March 2016....WELL what did I tell you????

In the last paragraph of yesterday's blog I mentioned expectations and how sometimes they can get me which is why I tend to eliminate them from my thoughts but I must admit I was a bit thrilled last night because I had managed to get an invite to here

at 8am this morning for some men's doubles BUT during the night the rain woke me up and it continued right through until about 9am when the sun came out so no tennis today!!!!

For most of my readers you are a day behind me so I want to acknowledge this very special day!!!

International Women's Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women's Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year.[2]In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation, and love towards women for their economic, political, and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended the culture of many countries, primarily in Europe, especially those in the Soviet Bloc.[3] In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for people to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother's Day andValentine's Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. Some people celebrate the day by wearing purple ribbons.

Starting with my Mum I have been privileged to meet, know and have a friendship with some extraordinary women thank you to every one of you!!!

So because there was no tennis I had a leisurely morning breakfast on the now sunny patio, some reading a little bit more planning as I head towards Sydney where on Tuesday I start a house sit for ten days and then just before noon I went about 15 km down the road and walked this lovely boardwalk!!



The water was clear with many fish close to the surface



The current flowing through the estuary was quite fast even though you cannot tell from the photos...


The end of the line quite a few ships have been scuttled on this open mouth entrance......on the way back took this shot which I think is so serene and peaceful...
and I really like the cloud formation reflections!!!
Came back to town and went to my favorite beach
I walked to the outcrop in  the center of the photo and swam in the ocean before retiring to my own private rock spa pool which came with my own little school of black and yellow sergeant major fish!!!
There was quite a lot of activity on the beach including this guy and let me tell you he was surfing right along at least 30km per hour...fun to watch!!!

The usual evening activities.
Tomorrow I travel inland into some rain forests and National Parks and travelling a highway which stretches for almost 200km and it is called the Waterfall Way....just down my alley I hope but of course no expectations!!!
Yashi Kochi!!
