Island Homes

For some years now our family has headed to stay with good friends on Magnetic Island in far North Queensland.

One hot steamy afternoon, my girlfriend and I went on a photo safari.....something we had been talking about doing for years. We had long admired the humble island abode and had a great afternoon exploring the backstreets. I dream about renovating some of them... but then again, many are perfect just the way they are!

Recently the island was ravaged by TC Yasi and our friends (along with most other locals) "sat it out"!
Thankfully most of these gorgeous dwellings survived without too much damage....but the cleanup is still underway! Wishing all Maggie residents a speedy recovery.


  1. fabulous! wish i was on that safari with you....did you finish the day at the club watching the toad races? xx

  2. Yes... and it is NOT for the faint hearted...
    but it's the highlight of the seven yr old boy's holiday, so there is no missing it !!!
