BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHY

What is it like to live in a diverse community where you need a boat to get home? Where people are genuine, full of colourful characters who help each other with daily challenges, encourage and celebrate each other’s artistic endeavours, voluntarily contribute hours of their time to shared projects, and regularly pause to appreciate the beauty of their surroundings that takes their breath away?


TRUE SHORT STORIES AND POEMS

In this second anthology about offshore life, over 60 residents of Pittwater’s Offshore communities share their experiences, thoughts, feelings, and perceptions about life through short stores, poems and reflections that will bring belly laughs, smiles and sighs 


 ARTISTRY AND CREATIVITY

Lavishly illustrated with the work of Offshore artists, potters, craftspeople and photographers, this full colour 160 page, perfect bound paperback, is a perfect keepsake and gift to be treasured.

TESTIMONIALS

What They’re Saying

The value of listening to the stories of our Pittwater people is immeasurable. So, in this blessed new book, the stories, poems, even songs, concentrate on the 'present and living', and as for anxiety, you won’t find much of it here.
