After visiting my dads this week I drove down the steep hill to the beach and took a few photos with my little camera. Time was about 6.30pm. This somehow helps me to recharge my batteries :) Well only sometimes.
Some view of Bass Strait and Coles Beach in Devonport, Tasmania, Australia.
These houses have a veiw of the sea, my dad's house is on the right up on the top of the hill and it over looks the sea.

The Australian Storytelling Telling (Victoria) banner will be flying.
I’ll be at the Festival alongside Jim Haynes, Bill Kerns and Greg Jenkins
Jim Haynes has a new book out, The Best Australian Yarns and other true stories. Jim’s collection is a great compliment to the work of Bill Wannan, Graham Seal and the Oxford Companion ofAustralian Folklore. For those of you interested in the Australian oral tradition, the book is chock full of tall stories from the bush, racetrack, shearing shed, railways and show business, Aboriginal stories and humour, diggers yarns, ghosts, monsters, Yowies …
I’d love to meet any storytellers at these events. Particularly the Pat Glover Award – participation is what keeps it going! Jim’s book is dedicated to the memory of Pat who passed away in 2005 – ‘the Port Fairy
This is the program but do check when you get there.
