looks like my inner little hippy just stepped in.
these were taken up the north coast last week, and the day after i got home...

...

you can take the boy out of where he grew up, but you cant take where he grew up out of the boy.
when i was a grommet, kids used to ride their horses to school. i had a boat instead of bicycle. we had dolphins instead of dogs.
i hated shoes.
saturday mornings were spent surfing while my dad swam laps in the ocean pools with wobbegong sharks, put there by unfortunate fisherman who caught them instead of kingies.
sundays were spent fishing off my jetty, i caught bream, and took mullet with a spear. once i got two in one shot. my dad saw.
we had b.b.q's everynight.
late afternoons were paintings
i was in three football teams. me. myself. and i. i won all the time. the ol' chip (kick) and chase got me every-time.
the thunderstorms were the noisiest you would ever hear. so were the cicadas. my mum telling me to tidy my room was the softest. so was the tide coming up .
my feet bled.
mr mitchell let me kill ants.
i kissed the girl next door.
family would come to stay. grandma stayed up late.
aunty chris made me skateboard picture. it was velvet.
and at night the light had to go juuust over it.

...
