CDP theme..'Where I belong'.



Growing up in Zimbabwe/Zambia, both landlocked countries, the first glimpse of the Indian Ocean I ever had was when the famille piled into Dad's old jalopy and traveled hundreds of miles to Beira in Mozambique. Gosh those holidays were fun, I had my first holiday kiss in Beria :) Is it destiny then that I should find myself, for more years than I care to mention, again living not hundreds of miles but a mere five minutes away from the very same ocean.. with no wish to be anywhere else! This is where I belong.. not in, not on, but beside the water, j'adore! Happy Tuesday, the official 1st day of Autumn here in Oz! Really looking forward to seeing..

  16. Well, you have found a fantastic place to put down your roots! Based on your photos, I can see why anyone would love Perth and want to live there!

  32. Beautiful photo of this great place !

  33. I can't imagine you picking any other place. You really seem to love where you are. I'd have a hard time choosing. I totally love where I live. It happens to be on one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the US, if not the world. For some reason though, I'm always drawn to wilderness places.

  34. I can relate to that , I grew up near the sea and live now among the mountains. Long to move back or closer to any ocean.
    Wonderful that you found your place of happiness.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Nice photo Grace. Like me, I like the sea, but don't enjoy swimming.
    So you've visited Beira, my hometown, how nice.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've lived in the desert, in the mountains, in cities - and I too prefer being by the water.

  37. The Indian Ocean is so beautiful...I'd love to live near an ocean, any ocean!
