Summer Sun Award!

My good friend, Shehanne Moore, has bestowed upon me a Summer Sun Award. She's always so
generous and brightens up my life daily. Thanks Shey. It's the middle of winter here in Brisbane, Australia. Mind you, yesterday we hit a top of 24 degrees C, so I'm not really complaining, but it's still winter for us.

But ... as with anything Shehanne does ...  there are rules! And God forbid any of us to neglect to follow them to the letter! So, here are the rules surrounding my acceptance of this esteemed award.

Well, firstly you display the logo and link back to the blog of the person who nominated you. Then you answer the following summery questions before nominating a lucky eight ….one for each sunray on the picture there. Then you must tell the lucky eight and name and display their blog link.
Of course the questions are all summer based.

So here goes. But just to liven things up (I'm a very boring person), I decided to do a retrospective view, and recall some of my happiest memories of summer.
1. Favourite song with summer in the title or the words (give the line) –

“Summer Holiday” – Cliff Richard. “We’re all goin’ on a summer holiday”.
(play the video, it's so funny).

2. Favourite book about summer –
“Allison’s Island Adventure” set in the isles of north-west Scotland. Can’t remember the author.

3. Favourite hot summer film –

4. Favourite summer memory –
Dad piling us all into the VW Combi and taking us to Wellington Point for a swim. Hey, I live there now!

Sunset at Wellington Point. I can walk here from my house.

Um, not me, but camping on Cylinder Beach.
5. Favourite summer holiday destination –
Camping at Cylinder Beach on Stradbroke Island.

Cylinder Beach, Stradbroke Island, Qld

6. What books will be in your suitcase this summer?

It won’t be summer here in Australia until about November. So, by then, I’ll be taking:

  •  His Judas Bride
  •  Saving Grace Devine
  •  Collared for a Night
  •  Share the Moon
  •  Finding Butterflies
  •  Lost in Kakadu
  •  Moonstone Obsession
  •  Warrior’s Surrender
  •  Rosamanti (Just getting a plug in for my new book).

7. What’s your likely destination this summer?

No plans as yet … maybe to the Sunshine Coast, just north of Brisbane.
Sunshine Coast, Queensland

8. What hottie would you most like to be sharing the hot days and long nights with this summer?
Pietro Lombardi (he’s my hot Italian hero in Rosamanti). Here's a photo of him. What do you think girls?

Okay that’s it. I’ve nominated seven people to receive this award. It’s now up to you all to follow Shey’s instructions above

And thankyou Shey, for spreading some happy sunshine all around the world. :-) I feel warmer already.


  1. aw Noelle. What gorgeous pictures. Stunners. And better hope my book is out for November and your real summer. It is summer today here in Scotland. The temp is 15 c. Don't laugh. Lady Fury thanks you for the award.

  2. Yeah, we're pretty lucky here in Brissy with our weather. Hey, I listed all the forthcoming books for my eight fave authors. You will all be out and selling well by the time summer hits my little house next summer here in Oz. I'm gonna have a fun time reading them all. :-) Shey, thanks for the award mate. x

  3. Thank you, Noelle! Love your pictures and love the beach!

    1. Thanks Sharon. Yeah, it's always nice to think of sunshine and beach. Cheers.

  4. Thanks Noelle. Beautiful photos, makes me yearn for a lovely summer. :-)

    1. Hi Louise. Thanks for stopping by. Must admit it's felt quite summery here the last few days, even though it's mid-winter. Cheers, Noelle.
