Lyall Bay in Black and White

Saturday morning, prior to Dan’s weekly soccer game, was spent whiling away a couple of hours in the sunshine on Lyall Bay beach. Dan took these beautiful photographs.


Simple pleasures. Playing in sand dunes, drawing in the sand, making sand sculptures, looking for mermaids and chasing seagulls.


Dan won his game of soccer – must have had something to do with his sparkling white soccer boots, which our friend Loose had generously (and bravely) scrubbed till they gleamed! Dan’s enjoying having two women in the house!

In the afternoon, he took the girls to the Zoo, whilst I enjoyed some peace and quiet. They came back bounding with happiness and still full of beans!
