My World Tuesday # 13 Semaphore Beach

Sadly it is so long since we have had rain when it happened over the weekend it was called an "Rain Event"
The combination of rain, strong winds and a king tide saw a section of Semaphore Jetty wash away.

The erosion to the coast line was terrible.
I took this photo this morning.

This is the same area in January.

I would have expected the seaweed to be worse.

If you take an early morning walk on Semaphore beach you are usually assured of seeing these guys training in the water.

The Weekend

Saturday started early with the dawn service.
It was cold, wet and windy but nobody was complaining, you would be stoned in the street in South Australia if you were over heard complaining about the rain.

Then it was off to "Inspired Stitches" I stopped along the way to take a photo of this fellow having his breakfast.

It was perfect weather to sit and stitch and the venue was fantastic with lots of lovely windows for us to sit and watch the wild weather outside.

Then came the hard part choosing what project to start. Some started more than one but I started Rosalie's bag I have enough started and not finished projects. It was a great project as it was stitched all in DMC 107 so no changing of thread I could just sit and stitch and TALK.

Janelle's project was a glasses case and a note book cover....... Janelle was lovely enough to name the project Adelaide's notemaker.

Here is the lovely Amanda and Julie working hard........ look at those windows and the gray skies outside.

It is always hard to take a good shot of Leanne as she is always moving or talking.

Not a great shot of Melly and Quilty Gal the windows were good for stitching but not so good for photos.

In all it was a good weekend full of chatting and stitching.
Thanks must go to Sarah for her hard work and organisation.

We are waiting

Easter is over and still baby ? has not appeared.

Easter Sunday

We had a lovely picnic on Sunday for Alicia my other nieces birthday. We were glad the baby didn't come on Sunday, Alicia has never been good at sharing so sharing a birthday from now on was not an option.
