Christmas Greetings from Downunder.

(This was filmed on Burleigh Beach in the iconic Burleigh Barrel waves off Burleigh Heads, my part of the world)

Fun, sun and lots of happiness sent to all my friends and blogging buddies.

May this season be filled with peace and harmony where ever you are in this big world of ours.

Cheers mates, and best wishes for 2015…

  1. That surfing was weirdly brilliant. I hope your Christmas was as wondrous strange.


    • Our Christmas was HOT which I still find strange after being in this part of the world for 50+ years I still think of Christmas in terms of cold, snow, roaring fires and hot Christmas dinners. We have salads, cold ham and prawns!!!!


  2. Oh it is just like home!!!!! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ Happiest & Healthiest New Year to yous twos!!!


    • I’ve so enjoyed your company during 2014, it has been quite a journey for us all. and I wish you health and happiness and safe travels for 2015. I’m looking forward to more of your amazing photos.

        • well that is a pretty obvious detail – lol – but we have a bit of surfing in our background – so I do sometimes look at boards – but wow – those santas can surf!!


          • A lot of the International pro surfing carnivals are held at this beach. I love watching them from the headlands. Many top surfers were born and bred in this area and they learnt to surf in the Burleigh barrels.


            • how cool – and we have heard some surfers say that there and hawaii is the “must visit bucket list” for surfers – πŸ™‚
              and the area where some of my family lives down in Florida is proud of their local boy who made surfing history – not sure if you hear dog Kelly Slater – and they have a few statues of him around there… πŸ™‚
