In The Summertime

in the summertime

We shot these photos in Palm Cove, Australia*. A serene and endlessly romantic beach town only 30 minutes north of Cairns. The weather was playing up, there was storm clouds one minute and sun the next. For example, as soon as Joseph took the camera out of the bag some hurricane like wind arrived out of nowhere. That’s why I’m holding my hat on in most of the photos, it’s not just a pose :)

I’m kind of obsessed with this big stripey hat. I’ve been dreaming about such a hat for years. Speaking of dreams coming to fruition, I’ll be flying to the Gold Coast tomorrow to attend the ProBlogger conference. So bring on summertime, big stripey hats, mojitos and the insanely blue Pacific ocean.

* A note on today’s post. It is highly recommended you scroll to the bottom of the page, hit play and then scroll back to the top and enjoy the photos.

In the summertime when the weather is high

You can stretch right up and touch the sky

When the weather’s fine

You got hats, you got lipsticks on your mind…
