I’m an ageing woman, living in a beautiful place. This blog pays tribute to my village and invites you to join me in my wanderings in and beyond the lakes, mountains, ocean, beaches and rainforest that surround me.  I take an obscene number of photos (that’s the snaps) and also enjoy writing, although that’s harder than point-and-shoot. Apart from photography, I enjoy visiting art exhibitions; meeting friends; reading; mucking around in a boat; occasional confession; camping; and whatever tickles an easily tickleable fancy (that’s the snippets.)

I’ve blogged for three years about similar things at http://morselsandscraps.wordpress.com/

and there are other photos of my locality at http://glossyblackcockatoo.blogspot.com.au/?zx=7476ff902826bc56

For a taste of my Potato Point world, have a look at these images

Periodically, I travel to Poland where my daughter and her family live, and set up a new blog for each visit. My Polish adventures so far are chronicled at







Here’s a taste of Poland

  1. Hi Meg,
    My name is Kate Riley. Among other things, I am involved with the production of a small magazine for the members of a group called Eremos. I am rather urgently looking for an image to illustrate an article which opens with a description of the uncomformity at Myrtle and Dark Beaches. Annoyingly, I was there only last weekend but I am now back in Sydney for at least three weeks so cannot take my own photo. Is there any chance that we could use on of your beautiful images from your blog post dated 29 December 2015?
    I am very pleased to have stumbled over your blog celebrating what is also one of my favourite parts of the world.


  2. Hi Meg, So nice to meet you here. Thanks for following my blog. I look forward to reading more. 🙂


  3. Hello, friend of photography and blogging! I would like to thank for your recent visit. A look at your blog shows me that we have a lot in common and not just our age. I hope you will be able to publish a new post soon. Greetings from Canada!


  4. Thank you for the follow! Enjoy your year in Warsaw — from what I see on this blog, you have the energy, curiosity and spirit to have a hugely rewarding time.


  5. I hope you are still enjoying Poland. Summer time is the best time – in my opinion – to explore and stay in Europe. Your photos and home place in Australia are wonderful!!


    • We’re here for a year, so we’ll see all seasons: this is my 6th visit in smaller bursts. Sometimes it’s hard to be away from home – and comprehensible language! I read my own home-blog a few days ago in a fit of homesickness.

      • We had that feeling while sailing for two years in French Polynesia! How we missed English and English speakers. Embrace your family in times of homesick hardships… 🙂


  6. Thanks for visiting my blog – your pictures are wonderful!


  7. Hi! (Restless) Jo gave me your link. I am going to Warsaw in February and she said you might be able to give me some recommendations. Previously I have been to Krakow and Wroclaw – both great cities!


  8. @-}—- @-}—- @-}—- @-}—- @-}—- Happy birthday dear Meg. I wish I could send you some real ones 😀
