Land and sea

This morning we went early for a walk, and as it was pretty windy we went around by The Bluff. We went through the back way and the Bursaria Spinosa was in full flower, in some places this is called Australian Christmas bush, a lovely thing that this year is covering itself with honey scented small flowers.
I love the back road, it is not used often and some of the properties around it are not farmed in the way our farm is and has a certain wildness to it.
There was a fair wind from the south east blowing so we parked by Whalers and walked the dirt road around to the Bluff jetty. It was a rather wild and lumpy sea and we both thought this fellow in his boat was quite mad, but then perhaps he enjoyed wasting petrol and the thumping his boat was giving him. (click on the photo).
Nearer to the shore these waves were rolling in, rather dirty from all the Murray River water that is finally making its way to the sea.
Last night, after a prompt from one of the blogs I follow, one of the Paris ones and I cant remember which, we went to the 4.30 session of 'The Tourist' with Angelina Jolie and Johhny Depp, a wonderful romp with fantastic views of Venice (and a little bit of Paris). Just the thing for a summers evening and even John enjoyed it.
I made a pizza to finish the evening off and a glass or two of wine. Sometimes I think we are boring, perhaps we are but we enjoyed it none the less.
