Love me a council clean up

_AP_0733sonnyphotosO our way to check out these home extensions, I saw 4 big wooden ladders being thrown out, including a straight one with wooden rungs I been looking for to hang from the kitchen ceilinso we can hang our pots and pans of it with some butcher's hooks. But these big A frame ladders are a score I feel. So happy with my find, imagine if they made it to the garbage truck and were destroyed. SO we set these up in the garden and had some fun _AP_0737sonnyphotos

Surf Sessions at Bilgola Beach

Had some footage on go pro needing to be edited and published, so here's a 2 min clip of 2 sessions at Bilgola beach, one in Jan 2013 and then March. I don't surf that often at Bilgola, but the bank has been fun out there.
