new work: tree cathedral

Sticking with my new years resolution to do one artwork a week (well at least work on one, make a start each week) here is 'tree cathedral'. The creative monsoon etsy shop is back up and running too.

Today we headed down south to check out Sharky's, a proper dog friendly beach in Coledale just over an hour out of Sydney. I read there was a lot of contention around making this a off leash beach but when we arrived I was a little surprised to see Sharky's has two other lovely beaches either side for our human friends. We drove all the way from Sydney as I'm sure others do, and we'll certainly be going back. I really hope Sharky's stays as it is. If you have a dog this place is a must, not only is it a lovely beach in it's own right but there are plenty of puppies running around just having a good time.

It's a shame there are not more places like this around. I was thinking about it on the drive back - we have more nudist beaches than dog friendly, just how many nudists are there in Sydney?

Anyway, it was Scampi's first visit to a real beach and he loved it! Rolling in the sand, bouncing over the waves and his favourite part - rolling on the dead seagull he found.... ewww.

Can you believe I have lived in Sydney for probably 3-4 years all up and never been to the Pyrmont fish markets until this weekend! Just a quick look to check the place out and take a few snaps, but we'll be back, definitely for lunch!
