I wanna hang on the couch with a good book near Linny's windows for a bit - what a view! Love love. Bet it's peaceful. Actually, the hills in Texas? out there could be mistaken for Australian Bushland. Uncanny how similar it is.

Anyone seen the film 'The Holiday' with Cameron Diaz & Kate Winslet? Where they swap homes in the US/UK to get away from their lives and troubles? We could always do that .... my Mum is really no trouble at all :) ... anyone got a hot brother like Jude Law? ;)

Wow...amazing photos Moongoddess!

Something I love hearing when I wake up is the birds....they are prolific here ( semi-rural). This morning the Black cockatoos are really active. We also have kookaburras, eastern rosellas (parrots) and magpies.

This is a sound I often wake to even in the middle of this large city.

(I think there is also a magpie in the US but it is not the same bird) I think it makes for a cheerful start to the day.

...and just because kookaburra laughing.

Love the lily Nooblette and MG's daughter's photos.

Disco one of these days we will make that gathering happen. Maybe we need to win Tatslotto or something.

I live in northern Florida. When I take my dogs for a walk we get to see wonderful wildlife! :-)

Oh, Sparkers, you're so thoughtful, installing a therapy pool for Peecup. Here in Australia we tend to use dolphins in our therapy pools but hey, whatever works for you! ;)

OK, I'll play - I live in Northern NSW, Australia, on the Coast. A short stroll to the beach. This is a pic from the air of my small Village & a pic of one entrance to the beach (lots of beaches and fresh country air round here.) No Alligators, just Kangaroos, Wallabies, Koalas, Snakes, Spiders, Native Parrots & other Birds, Lizards, Dolphins & Sharks!

Awww D, its lovely, reminds me of holidays, i've spent a bit of time in the area over the years, Ballina to be exact, peak tourist season and still only six people on the beach.

How big is that couch?

Bounce :cheeky-smiley-005:

Yeah, GF was staying with me recently and we spent a bit of time on the beach baking ... she says: "OMG, we have the entire beach to ourselves!!!" .. was not another soul around for hours so we stripped off to our bottoms! :blush:

The couch is big enough for two at a push, Bounce, it's L-shaped! :)

One of these days, Curly ..... :)

Me too. A bit OT - But it's a little bittersweet for me...it reminds me of where I used to live, 5 mins walk from beach. Guess who lives there now? Thing - he wouldn't move out, despite him moving in with me when we got together. I miss the walks (so does Mac), the ocean breezes in the summer.

I'm beginning to think that Chloe (the lab, not the girl) is possessed! Look at those yellow eyes peering out of the blackness!

Great Pics Chloe! Thanks for sharing!
