  • A hard days work is ahead for a rambunctious three year old, as he climbs out of bed and prepares to face the world and this summers day, head on. A day at the cottage is no easy thing for a child, in a place where every thing demands to be explored. Forests and bush filled with the things that will always take us back to this place. Plants, trees, bugs, small animals and birds all seem to call out the boys name, begging for attention. With such curiosity and agility he makes his way through the tall grass and scattered brush taking in everything his great blue eyes lay on. Learning and trying to understand the things around him in the best way he can.

    To an adult, this world may seem distant to us. Lost even. But to a young boy who's heart and mind is so curious about the wonders around him, it is marvellous. Standing on the waters edge, he is looking at the sunset with admiration as it reflects back on his ocean eyes. His sleepy eyes set on the sun that is now dipping below the trees that line the waters edge. To him, this will always be home. The place where he grew up surrounded by nature, in a world that is so fast paced. But for now, before he becomes wrapped up in the crazed world of technology, the wonder and simplicity of nature is good enough. The dirt that lay beneath his nails and the scrapes that cover his tiny knees, are signs of a hard days work.
