This past week K and I had a couple of days to get away for a short break. We decided to head into the wild (defined by any place with no mobile reception), 15kms east of Scone, NSW. It was excellent to spend time with friends, to build fires and to not be disturbed by email.
On holidays I usually like to set myself little challenges. This time I wanted to try out some new photo apps (mostly Average Camera Pro), along with my glif mount and a tripod. Here are some pics I took while experimenting with my new setup.
It has been a while since I posted anything of any real meaning on here. That is largely due to an almost non-stop summer of activity. Here are the quick highlights.
- We finished up at family church in mid December.
- Christmas happened.
- Tyro has been mental. See some of the stuff we have been doing here.
- We went on beach mission. We were the cooks. It was mental. Good mental, but still mental.
- A bit of time was spent getting ready for college starting again.
- Kirsty started a new job.
- I started a new job as a student minister at an Anglican Church in Cammeray.
- Australia dominated in the test series.
Pretty much sums it up. Normal service will now resume.
This week Kirsty and I went away for a few days to get a break, and to get some energy back after a particularly busy period of time. We went to the Hunter Valley.
Whenever we go away I am reminded of how important it is to take breaks from time to time to re-energise and re-focus. While this is hard to remember when we are busy, it is what we need. This is exactly what we did, and we are both all the better for it.
The place we were staying had an awesome view. This is a photo I took while we had afternoon tea on Tuesday.
