Getaway - Share my Snaps!

Can you believe this is in Sydney?

 Anyone who follows my Insta will know we've had a few getaways, where the weather has been less than ideal. However, when you're away, there's little work to do and just a different view out the window can make all the difference.


Here's to beaches, birds and blue skies for everyone.



We even got in plenty of wildlife visits from the kind of friendly natives...


Plenty of golf, tennis, volleyball and boogie boarding. And long walks on the beach!









Wanting a getaway? These photos are taken at Currawong and Culburra. 

Further details for Currawong and Culburra are here. And we also stayed here in Culburra- a good one for the rainy weekend we had. 



Fingers crossed the sun is out on Saturday, as we're off to yet another beach house...

Linking with #BlueMonday

  1. What a beautiful spot to get away from it all. I would be happy to sit and watch the wild life there, love that monitor. Keep safe Diane

  2. Absolutely gorgeous snaps! The lizard is really quite large. At first glance, I thought Komodo dragon. Looks like a beautiful getaway.

  3. Hi Lydia,
    I am particularly enthusiastic about the wildlife visits from the kind of friendly natives ... For us in Central Europe it all seems very exotic :-D I keep my fingers crossed that you have good weather on the weekend. But I think rain is important for your country, there has been so much drought ... We hope to travel again one day. My husband has been to Australia (in 1995) but not to Sydney and I have never been down under at all. But perhaps ......
    Hugs and happy weekend

  6. It looks lovely, a little overcast I can see but so peaceful.

    I think the thing I like about being away from home - as you say - is that you don't have stuff you feel like you HAVE to do.

  7. Sounds like a lovely getaway, despite the weather. Is that a goanna?

    1. Yes, technically a monitor but for a long while we called them all goannas...

  8. What a great getaway. I've heard of Culburra and been there many a time as I grew up nearby but I'd not heard of Currawong. At first I thought it was Currarong which is down on the south coast too but checked out your link and was very surprised! Greatsnaps for #lifethisweek

  11. Lol the only Currawong I’ve seen recently has been the one in my back garden:)

    What great beach spots to spend time in - another place to put on my ‘must visit’ list. When all the borders are open!

  14. Are your SURE that lizard is friendly? He looks quite large! Ours are a few inches long at most!

    1. Not friendly at all - and if they bite you, it never heals properly, apparenly....very bacterial.

  21. Loved seeing your getaway shots on IG. I am so not a fan of lizards and goannas. I can take snakes but not these! Glad you have had the chance to get out, about and to by the water!

    Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek. Next week the optional prompt is 46/51 Exams. 16.11.2020 Hope to see you then! Denyse.

  22. Looks like a great place to get away for a while to relax.
    I have to admit that your wildlife is much more interesting than ours in NZ!

    Thanks for sharing your link at 'My Corner of the World' this week!
