Sunsets and Pipi Shuffling at Lake Illawarra

The photos I took of this adventure a year ago reminds me of simpler times and simpler thoughts. I used to look forward to a simple outing with some hot chips, time with friends and the prospect of being outdoors.
This year when the pandemic hit, looking forward to these sorts of things now brings about a pang of guilt. Like the world is in lockdown and I am doing the selfish thing by heading outdoors when I shouldn't be. Although NSW has really relaxed its laws and we can roam more freely than others, I still feel like I have a sense of duty to be at home. 
It coming down to having a balance of staying safe and doing what's good for your Mental health. For my own health it has always been a good escape from home, get lost in the world. I recharge quickly indoors then I need to be outdoors. I am trying to tame that part of me. So blogging old memories helps, it helps alot. 
It's for my own selfish reason, but it gives me hope. And hope is one of the only things that is encouraging humanity to work towards a brighter future, one that is without this soul-sucking pandemic. 
Wear your masks and keep social distancing, let's keep hoping we will have a vaccination one day. When that day comes, lets all head out to shuffle for pipis and enjoy an amazing sunset with our own eyes, basking in the warmth and feeling a warm breeze; and not from at home through a blog photo.


  1. Que lindas imagens, encantada!!
    O mar traz muita paz e nos induz à reflexão!!
    E o lanche parecia ótimo!
    Tenha uma excelente semana!! :)))

  2. What beautiful photos! I think we can definitely still have days like this, especially at beautiful deserted beaches! We have been getting out along the local trails and walks and really been enjoying it - it's nice to explore a little and so rare to see other people around, with plenty of space if you do come across someone else on the path :)

    Hope that your week is going well :)

  3. It looks like the perfect day. Those pictures are just incredible! Sometimes, looking back at those travels and wonderful experiences from days past can be really beneficial. I miss travel and I miss the *hope* of travel. But one day, this will all be a memory and those perfect days will be back again!
    the creation of beauty is art.

  4. Oh my gosh, Lucy, what gorgeous pictures - that sunset! I miss just casual outings like this, so much. Zoom calls do not replicate it...

    I hope you're having a good week!
