Project 52: A portrait of my children once a week every week in 2014.

On the hottest day of the summer so far (better late than never) we seized the moment and hit the beach down at Oriental Parade after school. It was the stillest, sunniest afternoon, and I cannot remember ever seeing the water as clear as it was on this day.

Noah: my first water baby. You came into this world through water, and you'd spend all day in the water given the chance. You never feel the cold and love any opportunity to get wet whether its a swim, a water fight, a sprinkler under the trampoline or just soaking your head with a water bottle on a hot day. I love that you pointed out to me the glitter in the sand under the water and excitedly showed me when you caught the 'gold' in your hands.

Mylo: your water confidence has grown immensely over the past year. Starting swimming lessons has helped a lot, and following in your confident, older brother's footsteps has too. Here you are celebrating the amazing feeling of swimming in warm water with the glorious harbour a stunning backdrop for this unscheduled afternoon together. You even managed to convince your mama (who is not usually a great fan of swimming unless the water is at least 30 degrees!) to join you. I'm so glad I did.
