A sunset so stunning even seagulls stop and stare

I love sighing at sunsets (I even have an official certificate from work to prove it. S’true). Sunrise, on the other hand, is a little harder to catch each day as I love my sleep, but I have made a concerted effort to do so before, click here for a reminder.

Still, sunsets are easier all round. And I’m by no means alone in my sunset-adoration I know, but have you ever seen a seagull astounded by the pretty colours of the sunset? We happened to catch just this sight last weekend… Yes, I know there’s no such thing as a seagull thanks to the fairly detailed eco-marine trip work treated me to earlier this year – you know what I mean though.

All in all a nice easy weekend as I was recovering from the awful head cold Mum and Dad unintentionally brought back from their Mediterranean cruise.

The seagull seemed to be asking, "Do you guys see those colours in the sky?"

Wondrous burger - with cheese, bacon and a delightful chutney sauce. And tasty chips and super-large onion rings. Nom nom nom

My Sunday morning cappuccino, with dunking shortbread biscuit on the side, summery sunshine and the weekend paper. Bliss. All sold at Reload, Parklands

We went to the beach! Not sure if it helped me dry up, but the sensation of sleeping under the sun (sure, through a UV-blocking umbrella, but still) was just what I needed.

Husband also enjoyed drying off (literally, as he'd gone mussel-catching and swam in the sea)

This I'll miss! Clever coffee machine at work that has a chocchiato option

Almost time for the next weekend of tastes and experiences – starting to feel better so of course I can’t wait!
