Swell Festival 2017

It was great timing that Swell Festival (happening down at Currumbin beach) coincided with Ben's birthday. I've always wanted to go but for some reason or other the trip never eventuated. So happy, this year we got to take in all the beautiful sculptures on display - enjoy!





Swell festival - bonsai sculpture




Swell festival - chicken






The crab was the winner of the comp, the council buys the sculpture so it will become a permanent feature, how cool :)






Swell festival - dynamite sculpture







Any favs? I think the crab was a stellar choice for the winner :)

South of the Border

The other weekend was Ben's b'day so we headed down south for a visit :) My friend Emaya has been working in Tweed Heads (just across the border from Queensland into NSW) so we got to hang out as she showed us the sites. Today's blog post is going to cover our walk from NSW into QLD as I snapped away :) 


(I'll have a few more posts to share as well!)

This photo was taken in tweed but the whole area we walked had the best daggy architecture!

A surf comp down at Duranbah beach :)









Before we caught up with Emaya we did have a room around Surfers at the Gold Coast :) Apart from killing things at an arcade, we did something else super fun that I'm saving for another post!

Recommendation: I'm fairly sure I've mentioned before but just a reminder, go browse Warren Kirk's amazing flickr (discovered through thimblecat!)

Do you guys love vintage suburbia too?
