My Coastal Life


I live in a sleepy coastal town called Anglesea on the Victorian coastline.
It's the beginning of the Great Ocean Road,
one of the world's most spectacular drives.

My husband is a Landscape Architect and I'm an interior designer.
~ so it's a match made in heaven!
We both work from home and work hard at keeping a balance in life.
For us that means plenty of exercise, good food, sleep, relaxation and laughter.

This is a snippet of my life and a few of my favourite things.





This my new house by the beach.

This is my husband, Derek, who's a keen surfer!



Lazy weekends




Heading off for a surf

 


A Gin and Tonic is the perfect way to end the day!





Seafood in summer is my favourite.

The Back Yard







The friendly locals!

Our town is famous for it's kangaroos - 
they live on the Golf Course and they hop around my backyard!



 



The big attraction about the back garden is the fruit orchard.
 The pride and joy of the previous owners!
There's pretty well one of everything,
peach, apricot, fig, cherry, nectarine, plum,
apples and a gnarly 70 year old pear tree.
I've added a herb garden, a lemon tree,
a lime tree and a strawberry patch 
to complete my wonderful kitchen garden.
This summer I can see myself baking a lot of pies!
