thankful tuesday

{thankful tuesday}
Linking up with my blogging buddy Katie from Life with the Crew.  
Practising gratitude and acknowledging the wonderful things in our lives.
 
 
Feeling super thankful for the clean sand and water of Wooli.  They say the Wooli River is one of the cleanest in the state, and it sure feels like it. Almost the entire catchment is protected within National Park, so there is very little development in the area. 
The water is salty, clear and pure and the sand is soft and clean. Paradise really.
So thankful that areas like this still exist here on the north coast of NSW.

  1. Lovely photo, a real life memory. As we dig out from 25 cm of snow, I can only try to grasp a real life memory from 6 months ago of lovely warm summer days. Thankful for memories.

    1. Hoping the photos of us enjoying the sun and surf are warming you up Mary Lou. We keep on hearing weather reports from North America on the news, l'm thinking of you all :)

    1. Sure do. Throw in a small village, largely unchanged over the past 20 years, rows of fibro cottages and a much slower pace of life....and l'm in heaven. :)

  3. Love it Chrisy - thank you so much for joining me! Because of the time difference, its still Monday night here, so my post isn't up yet. It looks like a fantastic place to relax. Interesting to hear that it is salt water. A question from this North American who loved the movie "Crocodile Dundee" when she was younger - are there crocodiles in this river?

    1. Thanks for inviting us to join you! It's a great idea, and a good opportunity to practice gratitude on a regular basis.
      Now, on to crocodiles :) ........ You only get crocodiles in the far north of Australia, and we're about halfway down the eastern coastline, so we don't need to worry about them here. We do get sharks and stinging jelly fish, but the risk posed by those is very minimal...although the media here would have you believe otherwise. To this date the most dangerous thing you will encounter in Australia is a motor vehicle!

  4. Now that is exactly where I would like to be right now, such a different scene than what I am actually experiencing. Build a sand castle for me, please :)

    1. The extreme difference between here and North America at the moment is CRAZY. You've got an arctic blast and we've just had some of the hottest temperatures ever recorded. Hope everything calms down over there soon, stay safe.

  5. Can almost feel the sun from the photo. Thoughts that there is still water unspoiled is so refreshing

    1. Well it seems like everyone in North America could do with some warming sunshine :) Amazing the images coming out of there on the nightly news.
      It is great that areas like this still exits, although they do show how impacted other areas are in comparison.
