Ocean views ...

This week's Shiny T Tuesday prompt is "The Ocean".

As luck would have it ... I actually have an ocean just down the road from my place.

You simply follow the sign in my back garden ...


... and drive east for around 15 minutes.

When you can't go any further east ... you're there ... and it looks like this.





Pretty impressive thing to have almost in your back garden ... isn't it.


Now it seems only right and proper that a fashion post with "The Ocean" as a prompt should involve me wearing a swimsuit.

And of course I wouldn't want to disappoint anyone ... so I dug out a couple of my most itsy bitsy bikinis ... and went for a day at the beach.

Here I am frolicking in the water ...


Here I am playing in the sand ...


And here I am working on my tan ...


Just an average day out at the beach ... looking like I always do ... nothing strange going on here.

  5. What gives? Yesterday you were so anti Photoshop and today you want us to believe that you're actually some lithe six foot tall fashion model??

    Get over yourself girl!

    1. Move to Australia ... apparently 85% of us live within 50kms of the coast.
      I find the possibilities of photoshop absolutely hilarious ... and keep myself amused with them on a regular basis ;0)

  8. I'm very worried about you. You look incredibly malnourished in these pictures. Eating disorders are to be taken seriously and I think you need a sandwich or two ASAP ;-)
