Happy Australia Day


Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

Happy Australia Day to all our family and friends in the sunny land down under, where we like to celebrate the weekend with long walks on the beach.


Sky Watch Friday bloggers share their own view of the sky from all kinds of different places around the whole wide world.
