An escape to Lake MacIntyre

When you're hubby goes out to get ONE thing from the shops and comes back an hour and a half later, you don't let it stew and fester. Sure you call him names under your breath and wonder why you never get to do the same. This is a common occurrence and happened on Sunday.

When he returned I put tea in the oven, grabbed my keys and camera and announced I'd be back in a while as I rushed out the door. I needed to get out of the house on my own. It was my turn.

I headed to Lake MacIntyre. Not the most exciting to escape to. Not as exciting as heading to a friends house for wine, or down the shops (to buy wine).

It was good though. Time to stop and notice stuff, be with my own thoughts. I had to remind myself to take my time and that I didn't need to rush. All was good and there is no guilt in spending time with me. For me. I don't demand it enough.

  1. I must, must, must go out there for a look. There was something on there on Monday as there were heaps of cars parked along there.
    My father-in-laws funeral was held out there, under a big sheoak tree. He was a stock agent so we thought it fitting that his funeral was out near the sale yards, somewhere where he'd spent a lot of his time. People said it was one of the nicest funerals they'd been to, in the open air and with a bag pipe player playing Danny Boy....

    1. It's the lens that came with my Canon camera, an EFS 18-55mm. That's all I have at the moment. I'd love to get others one of these days, to have a play.

  5. How nice is it to have time to just wander and take photos by yourself. I definitely do NOT get enough time to do that!

    1. There's a few old trees like this here. They are massive and some of the branches are held up with posts.
