Making a break for it!



Discovered the fabulous mural here on a walk around Hillarys Boat Harbour close to home yesterday. Painted on the exterior wall of Aqwa Underwater Aquarium by Perth artist Brenton See at the end of last year it couldn't be in a more perfect position. See more of his work here. With Aqwa closed until further notice because of the virus, I couldn't help thinking that with the smell of the ocean and the waters of the marina a mere stone throw away, it looks as if the underwater creatures here are making a swim for it :) Thank you for all the lovely Mother's Day wishes yesterday, I had a super day, hope you enjoyed it also. Happy Monday, take care and stay extra safe..

  4. Indeed, is very beautiful mural! I can't wait for our life return to normal … although I don't know exactly how "normal" it is anymore!
    If you go to "Shabby Chic Vintage" ... please take some pictures? You made me curious!😅
    Have a great new week ahead! 🤗
