It has been a big year for the Holiday Haven Huskisson Beach team... Two of our wonderful staff have successfully completed their Certificate III in Tourism, focusing on customer relations and building on their knowledge of the industry. Recently, our Maintenance/Groundsman, Steve, has started his full time apprenticeship here at the park, specialising in all things outdoors! These are just some of the ways our team is constantly building on their skills to ensure everyone has a time to remember at our park!
Here it is, the last full moon of the decade. This is the last full moon of the current millennia. I am sitting here in the middle of Central Park on a big huge rock in NYC at midnight to take this in and commemorate the moment. There is an enormous amount of peace and silence right now, and I feel incredibly safe and thankful for everything that has been done to make this incredible tiny patch of nature a true oasis in the midst of the insecure overachiever city that is New York. Words cannot express this privilege.
BUT- I cannot believe no one else is here watching this and sharing this right now- within at least a 1/2 mile radius. NOT A SOUL IN SIGHT!!! What has become of humanity??? I am in the middle of an increasingly “connected” world, with exponentially less “connected” humans. Wolves in sheeps’ clothing (faux sheeps’ clothing for some). I am increasingly concerned that we are losing our actual humanity and our value of nature and real connection, and replacing it with vanity, false connections, virality and false gods. We are no longer as grounded as we were. I am concerned that 10 years from now I will not have the freedom to go as I please to a little patch of nature in NYC (or really anywhere) unmonitored. I am concerned that we are losing our real values and our real selves for false narratives. And we are truly diminishing our most important “god” the only one that is objectively real-> Nature (or whatever you want to name it). What I can say is that I love and appreciate the silence and beauty that still IS. And I sincerely hope my fellow neighbors (yes, the millions of them!!!) appreciate it as I do!!! Sincere gratitude 🙏🏻 Onward to the next full moon 🌕😊
You could take a leisurely hike up to the top of Little Adam's Peak and enjoy the serene views of Ella Rock...or you could leap of it and fly across the valley at 80kph. You know which one I was always going to choose! 🦸🏾 Such good fun @flyingravana

We boarded the plane buckled up and heard “ding”. The no smoking sign lit up and my four year old turned to me and shouts “What?!? There’s no cigarette-ing on this plane?!?!” 🤣🤣🤣🤣 .
Traveling with kids is fun. Showing them new things, meeting new people and teaching them to be flexible. They were amazing on the plane...even though they both cried on the way down because it’s hard to clear your ears (especially when you have a stuffy nose) .
But you know the 🍒 on top of this whole day was watching both my littles run full tilt and scream when they finally spotted they’re Mimi. 🥰 Yup, there are some parts of traveling with the kiddos that can be a hassle, but it is ALWAYS worth it. .
How old is this guy? I enjoy photoing these big guys, they seem so calm until the breading begins and then it's like a transformation. At that time they become a force to reckon with. #bighornsheep#canon#canon_photos#getoutthere
At Phoenix ZooLights tonight and it put on a heck of a light show; however the full moon rising over the Papagos, was catching everyone’s awe!
This iPhone night mode is nothing like a full frame camera, but it held up well for a fairly dark shot.
It has taken me awhile, but I finally nailed a cover shot for a magazine that I've been itching to contribute to for years. 4X4 Australia magazine was the first 4x4 mag I ever picked up over thirty years ago, when Ron Moon was the editor, and I've been hooked ever since.
Inside this issue is my article on the first section of the epic Binns Track in the Northern Territory and I'm proud of how the article has turned out, so if you can, go out a grab a copy and see how good Binns Track really is.
Living the Dream, Sharing the Experience.
Tomorrow morning, on my website, you’ll find a new blog post.
It’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog and I’ll share why with you tomorrow!
Chilli has been joining me on bike rides and there is nothing I love more.
Soon after moving north, we got Chilli. Since then, he’s been my sidekick. We walk together. Snuggle together. Cook together. Clean together. Study together. Well, let’s be real - he makes me do most of the work.
I took this picture on one of our recent rides together. He doesn’t know it, but we have many more cycling outings together planned.
Soon it will be his favourite thing to do, too.
Christmas is only a couple weeks away.
This year, our celebrations in Beaver Creek will be unlike our celebrations have been any other year. Although my cousin will be visiting, I’ll be away from my parents and brothers, which will be a first.
I’ve spent time ordering a few little Christmas decorations and essentials to ensure our holidays up here feel just right.
Of course, it turns out the Christmas tree stand I ordered (for the tree we will cut down in a week and a half) is for an artificial tree, and the stockings and decorations may not even arrive by Christmas. Oops!
It’s been a good reminder for me that Christmas is about the love in your heart, the people around you, and the cozy feeling you get from doing things that bring you joy. There’s no need for Christmas tree stands and stockings, really.
For us, it will be about creating new traditions, in a new place, with special people. And, hey, it will be a white Christmas!
The view from Artist Point during winter times will always be my favorite of Mt. Baker. A lot of times I feel compelled that I need to put in some sort of physical effort in order to make a photo worth it, whether it be climbing up a steep mountain or snowshoeing it to get to the location or camping under some harsh weather conditions. I've been feeling less motivated to photograph places that are "easy" to access. Although the photographs may be just as beautiful but I always feel more deeply connected to the ones that require more efforts.
The Lucie Mid is designed for daily commutes, urban adventures, and worldly explorations. With a breathable internal waterproof membrane, it’s also got the chops to keep your feet dry all winter long! ☔️❄️ This month, get a free gift with every purchase, to boot 🎁 #getoutthere#adventureworthy
