Gone Fishing

Wayne and I took a week off and drove North. A nice get away before the end of year/holiday season.

5 hours driving gets us to Stuarts Point a sleepy little town population 700.  The. Caravan Park is on an inlet. Of the McClay River.  Nothing strenuous just fish and chill.

The bridge spans the channel which is tidal. It leads to a path through the mangroves to the ocean.  Wayne spent a lot of time feeding the bream. Well he called it fishing.

I took lots of pictures but everything was so far away that when I tried to resize  pictures of large flocks of black cokatos they just looked like specks of dust.  There were pelicans and ducks to name a few of the birds.

One of ths the semi permanent campers has a hillside garden with these georgeous lilies.

It was nice to have some quiet time. Yesterday was recoup and today was 5 loads of wash. Honestly it was raining so a good time to chill.

We babysat last night for Archer while his parents went out to dinner for my DD#2's birthday.

This bargelo table runner was finished yesterday afternoon in time to box up with some new dishes for her Birthday.    These are her colors and I enjoyed a new techniqe and hey! Even though it's smaller than a quilt it is another finish.

Time to get the rest of the wash in before it gets cold or I run out of go. 

Enjoy your up coming week and take time to stitch some.

It's wonderful to see you beautiful holiday photos. What a great way to recharge your batteries. I love your table runner. Beautiful colours and it's so effective as a table runner. I know if I tried bargello I would end up with bits in the wrong places. You've reminded me that I should get some washing on.
