Hello it's me.





Photographs by Mont Clare

After weeks of zig-zagging across the country we've arrived in Clearwater, Florida where we will be hanging with family for the next few weeks. As much as I love van life it is rather refreshing to sleep in a real bed and have a shower whenever I please instead of having to seek out a public pool or beach.

I've been spending most of my time reading 1920s mystery novels, swilling wine and occasionally riding to the seaside to cool off. Mont Clare has started developing black and white film again more of which you can see here and baking pumpkin pies, although I was initially wary of this style of pie I am now well and truly hooked. 

Life is swell!

Also, i'd like to thank Tara-Lynn of Good Night, Day who recently did a lovely post on my travels

  1. Stunning photos. Pumpkin pie sounds interesting and I have wanted to try it. You've inspired me to have a look at a recipe and make it these holidays, since pumpkin is one of my favourite foods. And I love love love reading old mystery books, such as a good Agatha Christie novel on a rainy day.

    1. Thanks Meg. Let me know what you think when you do try it, to me it is now the perfect pie, I even had a slice with breakfast this morning ;) I'll have to get some Agatha Christie books to add to my growing mystery novel pile!

  3. Ah, which 1920s mysteries are you reading? That sounds like a perfect summer read (I love the Margery Allingham Campion mysteries, but they're from the 30s). You look gorgeous as usual...

    1. Thank you!

      I've been reading the Phryne Fisher Mysteries, set in Melbourne where I lived for the past 4 years. I get giddy each time I read of streets and landmarks that I once passed each day. Although it is a modern series set in the 1920s and a little cheesy i'm loving it all the same. Maybe its just comforting to read an Australian novel when i'm so far away from the homeland.

      I would love to read the Margery Allingham Campion mysteries, they sound right up my alley!
