At least mine is...
It's summer in Sydney and I happen to live in one of it's lovely beach areas. I'm not really a sun worshipper because girls with red hair (sadly) are not designed for that sort of activity - big hats, sunscreen and long sleeves are more in my wheelhouse but I love the beach.
This week Travel Zoo released its list of best beaches in Australia and I was not surprised to find two of my favourites in the Top 10. As you'll see Shelley Beach and Manly Beach are often in my photos.
Anyway, I thought I'd share some of my own more recent beach shots with you so you can get a taste of life her on Sydney's Northern Beaches. We have a small boat we like to explore Sydney Harbour on so I'm lucky that I get to photograph it from land and sea.
I often go for a walk at the beach to clear my head when writing and when it's not so hot (we're having a heatwave right now) I also like to go and write down by the water.
My most recent novels aren't set here but both my first two both have scenes on the Northern Beaches - Hearts Afire just towards the end and Mr Right and Other Mongrels is a set in beautiful Manly.
So enjoy the photos and if you feel the urge to escape to the beach via a book consider one of those.
