Favourite things Friday.

Turner's Beach Yamba
Well Friday had rolled around again which means it's over to SHAY'S for FTF to see what favourites are being shared. By the time you have read my post today you'll probably think I have 'rocks' in my head because that is my 'favourite' today. Rocks, rocks and more rocks!!!
I just love a rocky coastline with waves crashing over it. I love the sound, the sight, the smell, the sheer awesomeness of Mother Nature fashioning the coast line as she chooses. When were on holidays we visited much of the coastline around where we stayed and I became fascinated with the rocks (much to the groans of No 1 Husband). I don't know where this fascination for rocks comes from. Maybe it was the 3 years at college studying them and what results you could get by crushing them and making glazes from them and other wonderful treasures the earth provides for us to make fabulous pots and glazes.
So that's my FTF.....rocks from my holiday!
If you are familiar with Yoga you may have encountered mandalas which are meditaiton tools and are usually decorative circles which you mediatate upon to keep your focus and I thought this was a beautiful natural Mandala.
This rock was taller than me...I know that's not hard!
Can you see the heart shape in the rock.....or is it just me???
I just loved the texture which was across a large expanse of rock face at Woody Head
Yours truly a very happy little camper wandering along the rocky outcrops.
This reminded me of a patchwork quilt
How neat is this one...smooth on one side and groovy pattern on the other.
Well there you go! I hope this post has not put our relationship on rocky ground (sorry couldn't help myself). I promise to get over my holiday soon but for now I am still enjoying reflecting on it. Imagine how boring I am going to be when we first Central Australia next year :)

  4. There is something wonderful about waves ponding a rocky coast...and the rocks are like little history lessons, telling tales of Earth's past.

  11. Thanks for sharing, I probably will never look at rocks again without thinking of their texture and what transpired to mold them. :)

  17. My name means rock, so I can't complain. I like the heart-shaped rocks ( I think I saw more than one:). Blessings!

  18. Rocks are fascinating - Love your pictures and couldn't help thinking that since I have been working in the old part of town I am enjoying admiring all the blue stone laneways and buildings, I know they are man made but the texture is still that of the rocks.
    Enjoy all the reminiscing.
