Water Is All Around Us Here. #SundayStills. 54/2021.

Water Is All Around Us Here. #SundayStills. 54/2021.

About Sunday Stills:

Terri here has now  moved into her new abode and her friend from Always Write  was caring for Sunday Stills while she did so. I will share this post soon too.

May is here and if you too want to follow the prompts here they are for May 2021.

For our planned move from the landlocked space of North Western Sydney back in 2014 we both knew we wanted more space around us, nature and W A T E R.

My husband and I both had childhood and teen years by the waters of towns and cities of N.S.W. but we could not afford to buy anywhere near those areas when we returned to the city after teaching in the country.

We always holidayed annually near the beach, and it was to this area we have retired. Still not purchased a house but we are renting where we feel like we belong for now.

Water IS All Around Us.

The Wyong River.

We live on land which  belongs to the local Darkinjung people who are the original inhabitants of this land. European settlers also farmed this land and it was only a short while ago (less than 10 years) that where we live was a place for dairy cows. The Wyong River’s source is in the hills we see in the distance from near where we live and it meanders in gentle times, and floods in times of big rains. I visit the river at different locations. One is at Tacoma as it readies itself to join Tuggerah Lakes, which then flows to the sea. Another is what I call Porter’s Creek which is where I often go to contemplate and appreciate nature and just up from there is the place, of the original Wyong Milk Factory,  where the fresh water from the river meets the brackish water of the lakes.

Tuggerah Lakes. A Huge Inland Water System.

I see the lakes at various places near us: Toukley, Gorokan, Budgewoi, Tuggerawong, Wyongah, North Entrance and The Entrance.

And undoubtedly my favourite. The Pacific Ocean.

Also known by Tasman Sea – our nearest neighbour to the east is New Zealand. Each beach along the East Coast of Australia has unique qualities and often different coloured texture and types of sand. I sometimes walk on Lakes Beach, and down to Soldier’s Beach. These are places I see the surf and the waves. I also visit the rock platforms close to shore. So much water. So much to enjoy. And I do!

What is the water like where you live?

I Can’t Find Photos With Violet* In Them. #SundayStills. 47/2021.

I Can’t Find Photos With Violet* In Them. #SundayStills. 47/2021.

*oh but wait. Look here.

I found some. Phew.

Indeed I did.

But first, About Sunday Stills:

Terri here has now  moved into her new abode and her friend from Always Write  was caring for Sunday Stills while she did so.

V I O L E T.

The first thing that came to mind was of course, the flower but then I saw colour challenge and had a look. Oh my.

So many varieties in this colour with blue tinges and red tinges.

So, without further ado,

Here are my examples of violet from family snaps and my garden and a few from here and there.

Family snaps in violet.

From Our Garden Violet.

Arty Violet.

Out and About Violet.

I ended up loving the images I found and am indeed very fond of violet in all her tones.

Share Your Snaps. 15/51. #LifeThisWeek. Golden Wedding Anniversary. Part 3/3. 45/2021.

And here we are, at the third  of the photo-based sharing for 2021.

I call this optional prompt, Share Your Snaps. Snaps is another word for photos, pics etc.

Every 5th Week on Mondays

 

For this week and the past 2 Share Your Snaps, I  shared the recent Golden Wedding Anniversary memories for us. 50 years married on 23.1.2021.

Part One is here.

Part Two is here.

This is a LOT more wordy than usual for a Share Your Snaps but in keeping with my blog being part of my history it’s worth it for my records.

Now that is out of the way…our proud legacies in terms of family.

Our children, seen in the last Share Your Snaps, went on to form relationships and in a couple of instances, married their partners, and “we” became the most fortunate of people…in our life anyway…Grandma and Papa.

How did those names get chosen?

My parents for their own reasons chose to have their grandchildren call them bu their first name. Hence, “Andrew and Noreen” to the four grandkids they had between my brother and myself.  B’s parents were Nana and Pop. So, I came up with “Grandma” for me and “Grandpa” for B. This was fine. Until, when Miss J (eldest) started saying his name as “Papa” we LOVED it. And as I had a much loved Papa in my life , it fit. I admit I got “Gummy” for a while, and now the adult grandkids refer to us as G-Ma and Pups.

 

Here they are: in order of arrival as our grandchildren….we are so fortunate! First one arrived late 1996 and the last one early 2015.

A few more memories, specifically from the Golden Wedding Anniversary:

We were very grateful to receive cards and letters of congratulations from various heads of state and government.

These can be organised for many celebratory occasions and the links are here and here if you are interested. I knew what to do because I had used this to get my parents’ Diamond Wedding Anniversary Congratulations Messages. Knowing your local (in our case, N.S.W.) member is also a way to apply along with sending in our case, a copy of our marriage certificate. The one lodged at Births Deaths and Marriages.

The Federal member for us also helped and very kindly sent her personal congratulations in a floral way!

And just a few more memories…it seems ages ago now but life is like that, right?

And that is it. The three posts commemorating our Golden Wedding Anniverary on 23 January 2021.

Thank you for reading and commenting.

Denyse.

Share Your Snaps. #2. 10/51. #LifeThisWeek. Golden Wedding Anniversary. Part 2/3. 30/2021.

Every 5th Week on Mondays

This is the second of the photo-based sharing for 2021. I call this optional prompt, Share Your Snaps. Snaps is another word for photos, pics etc. Every five weeks I invited bloggers to Share Their Snaps.

For this week and  then the final Share Your Snaps in my series of 3, I am going to share the recent Golden Wedding Anniversary memories for us.

Bit more wordy than usual too.

50 years married on 23.1.2021.

As young married teachers we went back to the North West countryside of New South Wales, and in addition to adjusting to being married, “I” had to adjust to being a young, teaching, mother-to-be.

If you ask me now how I did it…I would say, I just did. I was young, healthy and in love. Yes, having a baby early in our married life who was not planned but much wanted was a challenge. I have written more about that here.

Our daughter with her parents

As life went on, pre-becoming parents & after, we both moved together to new places to live and teach, at the same time growing as a couple and making new friends and becoming accustomed to long travelling days back and forth to my parent’s house for holidays and then to the country side.

I share the story of the year we decided to return and buy a house, and incidentally become unexpectedly pregnant here. Life was a mix of busy, good, challenging and filled with caring for both a baby and his sister who was  by now in Year 3.

Luckily I found great day care for him when I had to return to teaching (and was glad to) and then we faced more challenges over the next few years than many. I also documented that here.

 

Our son. After being told ‘no more children’.

So, all in all, parenting is both a joy and a challenge! And still is but now we watch those parents be parents themselves …and just quietly we are fine about that too.

We lived here in those years:

Boggabri

Barraba

Narrabri

Merriwagga

Weilmoringle

Kellyville: our first home in Sydney.

We Taught Here In Those Years:

Fairfax PS

Harparary PS

Barraba CS

Hillston CS

Merriwagga PS

Weilmoringle PS: one of the most remote schools in N.S.W.

Turramurra PS

Cherrybrook PS

Jasper Road PS

Seven Hills West PS

These Were The Vehicles We Drove.

Datsun 1600

Datsun 1000

Ford Falcon

Holden Belmont

Datsun 180B

Toyota Crown

Ford Fairmont Wagon

Datsun 120Y:  the first car for me.

Holden Premier

Images from Parenting Years.

Our Daughter.

Our Son

And from our Silver Wedding Anniversary in 1996.

This image brings back memories that were not always great. Yes, we had a loving family and friends’ party for our 25th Wedding Anniversary as organised by our married daughter.  We were not to know that by the end of that year, my husband would become ill, his business (building kitchens as you see in the background from the house we only lived in for 3 years would be liquidated, I would be in a rear-ended car accident for which I had to have a lot of time off work and seeing a physio…but this was to happen…Becoming grandparents just before Christmas 1996.  Life, hey!

It’s a great way to share my snaps and keep the family life record happening too.

Blogging is so good for this!

Thanks for your comments, adding a post and sharing too.

Fallen. #SundayStills.#6.18/2021.

Fallen. #SundayStills. #6. 18/2021.

Each week I am writing and posting here for inclusion in the #SundayStills from this blogger and kind person, Terri from here.

And also this is part of my blog’s category for sharing photographs.

I have now combined the two and made a shared purpose photo for this photographic challenge.

What do you do when you get a prompt for Sunday Stills that is nothing to do with what you can relate to.

You come up with another version for “fallen” as I have now!

Falling! Fallin’ Fallen!

Oh I don’t know, let’s not get too carried away.

Back in 1970 two young teachers met at a Tamworth Teachers Conference. Story about that here. We admit we did “fall for each other pretty darned smartly”.

By the time this only know group of two pictures recorded us, we had FALLEN in love!

 

Now, what about that?

Without this, then these people would not have arrived in the world.

Our two dear children. As kids.

Then as they went on to have their children, our eight grandchildren, then the world would be a quieter and sadder place without them.

 

So, all in all, I think fallin’ for each other back then has paid handsome and invaluable dividends.

We paid out on that dividend with a celebration for our Golden Wedding Anniversary in late January 2021.

What did you think of my ‘take’ on Fallen?

Denyse.

My Favourite Landscape. #SundayStills.#5. 16/2021.

My Favourite Landscape. #SundayStills. #5.  16/2021.

Each week I am writing and posting here for inclusion in the #SundayStills from this blogger and kind person, Terri from here.

This is my fifth post! I think I must be liking the new category for my blogging. Of course it is made better by the company I keep including Australian-based bloggers too.

Asking for my favourite landscape is a lot like asking for a post about my favourite grandchild. They are all favourites in different ways!

So, that’s my basis for this post.

I do like to be out in nature sometime each week even if it IS just for a down time, some taking in of the air and sounds, or maybe some splashing in water.

A landscape for me can be as simple as a view from a window, to a long road ahead and back to the beach for a windswept scene.

Here They Are!

Favourite Landscape: One. The Beaches of The Central Coast, New South Wales.

Norah Head. N.S.W. Looking east.

 

Norah Head Lighthouse. Looking North. Close to sunset.

 

Soldier’s Beach. Stormy weather in winter.

 

Lakes Beach. Post wash up of ALL the pebbles & shells!

 

Favourite Landscape: Two. Rural New South Wales.

Driving past country hills and pasture land of North Western N.S.W.

 

Narrabri: the sign points to the property that was our first home for 1971-72.

 

Horse and cattle studs not far from where we live.

Favourite Landscape: Three. One River. From a Few Places: Wyong, New South Wales.

The Wyong River wends its way to The Entrance and eventually The Ocean.

 

Part of the Wyong River at Porter’s Creek.

 

The lake from Tuggerawong.

 

More delightful reflections at Porter’s Creek.

Favourite Landscape: Four. Bridges and A Jetty from Lakes on the New South Wales Central Coast.

 

The bridge at Budgewoi Creek, is a special place for mindfulness for me.

 

A view from the northern side. Love the reflections. I came here to ponder many things happening in my life and when I was diagnosed with cancer, it was to here I came.

 

No chance of a walk after this flooding rain!

 

Long Jetty is a former jetty on the lake and now ideal for photos!

Favourite Landscape Five. Clouds and Reflections On the Tuggerah Lakes.

The hills, the clouds…and the solo pelican

 

I never tire of taking photos of the lake when it’s so still like this.

And even though I originally had 4 favourites, I added a fifth as I wrote the post!

I hope you enjoy seeing my part of Australia as much as I enjoy finding spots to photograph like these. Oh, and they are all via my Iphone 11 ProMax.

And joining with Natalie for #weekendcoffeeshare here too.

Share Your Snaps. 5/51. #LifeThisWeek. Golden Wedding Anniversary. Part 1/3. 13/2021.

Share Your Snaps. 5/51. #LifeThisWeek. Golden Wedding Anniversary. Part 1/3. 13/2021.

Every 5th Week on Mondays

And here we are, at the first of the photo-based sharing for 2021. I call this optional prompt, Share Your Snaps. Snaps is another word for photos, pics etc.

For this week and the next 2 Share Your Snaps, I am going to share the recent Golden Wedding Anniversary memories for us. 50 years married on 23.1.2021.

How did we meet?

This has been mentioned in a couple of posts here and here.

As recently as late last year after we had been “back to Tamworth” in north western New South Wales to celebrate our 50 years since meeting.

Both of us were K-6 teachers. I had graduated in 1969 and, as a city and beach girl, I was actually delighted to be going to the ‘bush’ for my first appointment in a school, at Barraba. My husband though only 9 months younger, had finished high school in 1965, gone to a rural teacher’s college and graduated in 1967, with his first appointment in 1968 to a one-teacher school in north western N.S.W. On the opposite side of the Great Dividing Range to mine….as we would find out later.

He lived much of teen years near water like the first image and the ocean on the north coast of N.S.W.

I lived much of mine in a much busier place, Sydney, and close the the Beach here at Manly.

Meeting. Here. 50 Years On.

Tamworth N.S.W. 2020.

Time For the Memories Of Our Wedding AND Where We Were Headed After Our Marriage.

Smiling as this left-hander writes her name, Simpson, for the last time.

 

Lovely Priest Who Encouraged Us to Have the Wedding Ceremony “WE” wanted not the one our families did.

 

And Obligatory but Awesome After Shots…On the Church Steps. Looking West Into the Sun.

My attendants were 2 teachers from school, and our neighbour’s eldest girl. My bro on right, B’s bro out of shot!?

 

With my parents.

 

With B’s parents.

 

And relaxing before the reception. Lemonade in my hand*.

 

Onward, Up the N.S.W. Coast and Into Floods In a Week or So.

If only I was the photographer then as I am now. Actually I was. Most of our shots I think were on slides? We also have some silent Super8 movies from the times. Nevertheless, our honeymoon, for two teachers, one (me) newly pregnant* and newly appointed to a second school in her second year of teaching was spent in a rather cramped car, laden with wedding gifts, beach holiday needs and those of a teacher who was going to a new school. A two teacher school as it turned out.

In 2017, my husband re-visited the area where we both taught, at Maules Creek out of Boggabri. This was my K-2 classroom in 1971 and 1972 with no air con

 

We enjoyed the notion of living rural. He had experience. I did not. But I loved (still do) my husband and together we could make it all work. What we did not know is that as we kept driving from our lovely honeymoon in Ballina, the north west was receiving flooding rains. We heard that we would not be able to travel to dirt (black soil = bogged) track that led into our rented place on a property so we were generously given lodgings by a family from  my husband’s school.

The property where we lived for the first 2 years of marriage and where we brought home our baby daughter. Our little house is no longer there.

 

Not an ideal start to married life, but that is the perils of bush living in 1971. Next thing I knew, “I” was off to school. To my new school, meeting the boss who was already a good friend to my husband and had attended our wedding, via a tractor as I had to be ferried across a creek.

I started school a WEEK before my husband because “his school” was the other side of the imaginary line called the western division and they had an extra week of hols. This imaginary line still exists and is good for extra holidays, salary and some points towards transfer. Believe me, incentives ARE important.

These country scenes from north-western New South Wales, which I captured when we went back in October 2020 were so very familiar to us, from our first years of marriage. We loved re-visiting the area and feeling the freedom of the space around us.

Next time for Share Your Snaps will be Golden Wedding Anniversary Part 2. I am so trying not to bore my readers but I also want to have the record here!

Thank you,

Denyse.

Clouds From The Southern Skies. #SundayStills. #4.12/2021.

Clouds From The Southern Skies. #SundayStills. #4. 12/2021.

Each week I am writing and posting here for inclusion in the #SundayStills from this blogger and kind person, Terri from here.

My images, are almost all from the Southern Hemisphere and on Australia’s East Coast.

 

Coastal Clouds: Semi-Tropical Area of Queensland in Australia.

Around 9 years ago, I was walking on Mooloolaba Beach on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland having a short break from life back at home in N.S.W. I also got to catch up with blogging friends and those from social media on that trip.

 

Coastal Clouds Heralding the Sun’s Arrival on the East Coast in Temperate Zone of N.S.W. Australia.

Around 7 years ago, I drove from where we lived in Sydney’s north-western suburbs to Manly beach on the coast, where I grew up, to capture sunrise in July.

 

Whispy Clouds of Winter on the N.S.W. Central Coast at Ettalong. 

A few years back, one grandson (his 2 sisters were elsewhere engaged near the sand) observing the water of Ettalong.

 

 

Pretty typical Summer clouds in Sydney.

Sunny Sydney, Australia,  in Summer. Magical Day To Be on a Ferry On the Harbour.

 

 

And in contrast, here is an Autumnal Cloud set above the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

I took this from the steps of the Sydney Opera House when I visited in May 2015 for TedX.

 

Clouds as far as the eye can see over Lakes Beach, Central Coast, N.S.W. Australia.

This is my ‘local beach’ now for best walking conditions.

 

 

Clouds at sunset, capturing the colours at the end of a Summer’s Day.

New Year’s Eve 2016. The Entrance, N.S.W. Australia. I went for a drive before dark in 2016, so peaceful.

 

 

AND, not in the Southern Hemisphere! Looking back at Waikiki. The clouds are so lovely in the afternoon.

These clouds over Oahu as I finished my day tour when I visited the magical Hawaii back in 2006.

 

I find the skies magical. I admit I look up most days and delight in the visions of clouds and a blue sky. Over a year ago, though, the sky was grey, smokey and the only clouds we saw were made from bushfire smoke.

Debbie from here, was far away in the U.K. when this was happening, watching the news from afar…and oh so grateful to see their property in Tumbarumba survived back home, even though others did not.

So far, this Summer has been OK. Nevertheless, we are always primed for taking care of property and ourselves in times of heatwave conditions…the start on one here as I write this post. We are taking care of our health and staying inside with the ducted air con!
