Shades of blue

It’s amazing what can be found by going through some old photos.  Being in Queensland, there seems to be a lot of blue in most of my photos. 

Thanks again to Evi @ SisterSun for encouraging this process. 

These are some of the blues I found. Most of these were taken on various holidays - which I found surprising, as it always seems to rain whenever we go on holiday!

The photos below were taken in New Zealand several years ago. 
 This freaky cloud photo taken in Queenstown.
 A holiday at Iluka NSW.  Evoking memories of lots of fishing, boating and blue sky days.
A lovely contrast of Queensland blue skies against the roof.  This old Queenslander in in Ipswich and is actually where my father was born and raised many years ago.  It is in beautiful condition and obviously well loved by the present owner.
 Gorgeous Stradbroke Island.  The pictures speak for themselves.
I'm actually feeling a little blue myself today, as our son successfully obtained his “P” plates this morning.
I know I should be happy...... and I’m sure I’ll get used to it – one day!
Oops I accidentally snuck in a little maroon too!
Well, it is almost the STATE of ORIGIN football - and incidentally, it is Game Three - the Decider.
Maroons vs Blues, so I couldn't help myself. Go Queensland!!
Blue is also the colour of the wool in the Giveaway!!  Don’t forget to leave a comment on the giveaway post, and be / become a follower of the blog to enter.

Cheers for now

I've really enjoyed looking at your holiday photos of lovely blue skies and water. That cloud is quite unusual. How lovely to see the house where your Father was born, that must be very special for you.
I don't know where Stradbroke Island is so I'm going to do a little Google searching to find out.
It is a big day when your kids get their 'P' plates, just a bit scary and you know they are growing up and becoming independent. Thinking of you.
