My friend Ric loaned me his amazing camera...all of the below pics are all taken with his camera and his beautiful lens! I am happy to report that with the kind monies gifted to me on my birthday, I was able to buy the same camera as Ric... albeit without his amazing lens... Santa if you are listening, you now know what to get me!
After a yum birthday dinner of Thai , Double D and I headed back to Danni's for this gorgeous surprise! Someone needs to marry that woman, Pronto!:
The day after my birthday my friend Julie and I went to Phillip Island. She surfed, I watched.

So far 'Forty' has been really good! I haven't put on heaps of extra weight (yet!), but, I have spent most of my spare time taking photos and gazing lovingly at my new camera...so to those who chipped in for my new camera 'Thank you'... and for those that have been 'modelling' for me as I practiced with my new partner.. er I mean camera, another heartfelt 'thank you!'
