Colours of June – Part One

Visit this link at Sue’s Life Looms Large to see more contributors to COLOURS OF JUNE and maybe join in.

 

I cheated this month. I caught an aeroplane to Northern Queensland, Australia and boarded a friend’s yacht. It is tropical so their winter is not really a winter.

Every day is a different adventure. Lots of sailing, swimming, snorkelling, photography, reading, knitting, bit of cooking. Could do with more showering.

Beautiful shots of a beautiful trip! I'm not sure whether it's cheating to avoid winter or cheating to have a friend with a yacht and not invite the rest of us!! But at least we're there photographically speaking!

All of those images could be postcards!! So beautiful!

Thanks for sharing your colors of June....and if it's titled "Part 1" I eagerly await any future parts!
