so, i've just returned from a 3000km/1865mile road trip.you know, a quick little work trip. up to the tropics.
10 days, 2 states, 16 towns, 14 shops, 8 surfs, some solid family time, 4111 cuddles from my beautiful mumma, 216 beers, 102 whales, 9,000,000 dolphins, 6 jelly fish bites, 1 speeding ticket, 3 rolls of film, a few couches, a few beds, 101 scratches for my old puppy and a seriously rude mullet haircut. you heard right. ahh, the things you do to entertain yourself on the road.
now theres one thing for sure. i miss all that, but i miss this too. when im gone. the best thing about leaving sydney, is coming home.

this is north head. from south head. the entrance into sydney harbour. right near bondi...

"An opal-hearted country,
A wilful, lavish land -
All you who have not loved her,
You will not understand -
Though earth holds many splendours,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly."

    Fantastic words to go along with this shot - it's as the land mass begins to reveal itself to the sailor, coming home from a long sea voyage.
