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?

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.
