wishlist new camera bag...

I am forever wanting to take my camera/s with me places but hate having to take a huge camera bag and then another personal bag for everything else...or i just leave the camera bag at home and just carry the camera all day. Here is the perfect solution to my problem...a cute tote camera bag for ladies by Jo Totes. The one I most like the most is the Rose - Marigold shown here...It looks like a normal everyday bag but has the protective and storage capabilities for your camera, a Polaroid, additional lenses, as well as all the other things you might need for the day. IT IS A DEFINITE ON MY WISH LIST!!! You should pop over and have a look at some of her other fabulous designs.

25th april - ANZAC day...a day of remembrance for those that fought and have fallen in the WWI. i was planning on going to the dawn service on the esplanade...unfortunately i was really tired and didn't wake for such an early start, instead i got up and went for a morning run along the water edge and stopped to have a look at the anzac memorial.


love from cairns...

two sundays ago i set off with a wonderful friend from uni on a road trip to cairns. we are staying in this sunny (well not so sunny at the moment as it has rained since last thursday) for five weeks while we work at the cairns base hospital for placement. we are both a little crazy and that made for a fun trip in the car complete with silly games and belting out some tunes. Here are a few photos through the lens of my iPhone of our adventures in airlie beach, cairns, palm cove and a walk to the Barron Falls (where Beck got us lost).

.: our journey has began
.: the long long drive from Brisbane to Cairns
.: airlie Beach
.: this is the lovely Beck...we kinda loved Airlie Beach
.: palm Cove
.: a breakie date
.: dinner out that ended with a huge death by chocolate dessert we all shared
.: swimming at the Lagoon
.: some delicious gelati
.: we finally made it to barron falls after some detouring

one of the best weekends of this year...

it was a few weekends ago now, but it was so wonderful that I just had to blog about it! a lovely lady is getting married in around three weeks (i can hardly believe it is this close already) and we had a bit of an adventure down to Evans Head. Pictures are way more fun than words so here are a few of the fun we have had. Have a look over here to see the maid of honour reflection of this weekend and the bride to be herself here
