The week that was because . . .

The ‘Where ‘n When’ of the photos so far.

Prequel – Pebbles on Emerald Beach, New South Wales.
This photo was taken on December 15, 2014, during our trip around Australia. We spend Christmas that year at Emerald Beach, an area we’d visited before and, due to the headland creating perfect waves for goofy-footers, this was always going to be a spot where we spent some time.
Day 1 – A pair of dancing fairies.
This photo was taken on February 21, 2015, and we were staying at Seaspray adjacent to Ninety Mile Beach in Victoria – Australia’s longest beach, and no, we didn’t walk all of it, although out walking a (small) section of it one day, I was fascinated by the cloud formations.
Day 2 – A Star Hatchery here on Earth
This photo was taken on July 25, 2015, when we were hiking the Pigeon House Mountain Didthul walking track near Ulladulla in Morton National Park. There were not many wildflowers about, but these (little stars) were quite stunning.
Day 3 – Just a bug eaten leaf – or is it?
This photo was taken on December 5, 2015, when we were enjoying the One Tree Bridge Conservation Park near Nannup in the southwestern region of Western Australia. I still have this leaf and the Bug Beaten Beauty sealed in a plastic bag.
Day 4 – Like finding a Ruby in a Mountain of Rocks.
This photo was taken on February 27, 2016, while bushwalking in the vicinity of Lake Argyle in Western Australia’s Kimberly region. I had become quite adept at spotting heart-shaped rocks.
Day 5 – Bonus Square – Posted on behalf of my daughter, Melissa.
This photo was taken on Melissa’s wedding day and I love this photo just as much as she does. Melissa and Steven are still as blissfully happy today as they were the day they were married.
Day 5 – “Let me set the record straight – I looked like this before lockdown!”
This photo was taken on October 4, 2015, while in Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island. I feel so privileged to have seen the beauty of Kangaroo Island when I did and hope it isn’t too long before it recovers from the devastating 2020 bushfires.
And yes, I was out of bed early to photograph the (Birthday) Full Moon – July 5, 2020, 5:12 am.
Day 6 – I love this photo of my husband.
This photo was taken on May 2, 2015, after we had hiked through Tasman National Park in Tasmania to reach the Shipstern Bluff lookout.
And yes again, Dean’s birthday is the day after my birthday.
Day 7 – Baby, baby, can’t you hear my heartbeat?
This photo was taken on October 13, 2015, while visiting the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden on the north side of Port Augusta in South Australia. You can find hearts everywhere.
July Squares is Almost Here – A Fallen Twig.
This photo of a beautiful Abstract Heart was photographed on March 30, 2016, while hiking (bushwalking) near Cardwell, Queensland. Sometimes it pays to look down.

And finally, to the featured image used for this post.

Angry Birds? What Angry Birds?
This photo was taken on October 14, 2015, somewhere on the Stuart Highway. We were on our way to Uluru, Northern Territory from Port Augusta in South Australia and pulled over to have a rest. There were hundreds of these Zebra Finches, flitting around and having a drink, and we enjoyed (laughed at) their antics.

This is my next entry in Becky’s July Squares Photo Challenge – Perspective.
