12 Days of Christmas – day 1

I’ve searched through the thousands of photographs we’ve both taken this year for 12 which sum up our 2016. It hasn’t been an easy task. I could have easily picked 12 from those taken in Australia or from the many bike races we’ve seen. But I haven’t.

Shortly after this series starts, we’ll be jetting off to Dubai, en route to another winter in Australia. This year I have no excuse other than when friends asked me if I’d have done anything differently on last year’s trip, I replied “Stay longer!” So that’s what we’re doing and it’s only fitting that I start with a photograph from Australia.

 

Gippsland Lakes
Gippsland Lakes

The Gippsland Lakes are a network of lakes, marshes and lagoons covering over 600 sq kilometres, separated from the ocean by coastal dunes known as Ninety Mile Beach. Bird and marine life thrive here, with lake dolphins and pelicans frequenting many locations. We passed through here when we drove along the coast from Melbourne to Sydney. The scenery along the way was stunning but the beautifully scenic Lakes were the piece de resistance!
