Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Happy Place.”

I have a number of Happy Places. Being out in nature away from the hustle and bustle of city life is the best thing for me. When I’m fortunate enough to go there, my favourite place to find peace and quiet is on my sister and brother-in-law’s farm in the Kalahari (Namibia), or Coral Bay or Rottnest Island (both Western Australia), all of them out in nature. When I’m not travelling I’m happiest at home in my own space, and my go-to place is my garden.


I have my own little quiet spot where I can enjoy the dappled sunlight and birdsong with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning or sit and read my book over the weekend and maybe enjoy a glass of wine as well, or just sit and be quiet in my happy place.
