My World Tuesday # 15 Mothers Day

It was Mothers Day here on Sunday which meant a trip to Moonta my mother, sister and one of my nieces still live there. It is where I grew up.
This was the view from the Sea Gate where we had our lunch.

When my father was not away on the boat fishing he would walk over to this cliff twice a day to check the weather. My parents house is about 100 metres from this cliff.
This is the view one way.

This is the view the other way.
Dad was very good at forecasting the weather.

Moonta is a lovely place. My neighbour hailed from there and it had a pull on her. She did have family there too and would visit there regularly.

Looks like Charlotte is enjoying life! Pink... so sweet! Mom is looking good...
Your views are wonderful... I grew up not far from the coast of the Pacific Ocean... in Oregon in the U.S. There's just nothing like the ocean to soothe a person's soul! Although I live far from it now.
Hope that you had an enjoyable time!
