We have just come back from a weekend down at Boomer, the weather was terrible.
The annual surf carnival for Nick was cancelled.
There were lots of rainbows excuse the power lines but I was in my nightie and slippers which are not designed for wet weather so could only go out on the balcony.

Even when it is freezing Sean can manage a surf.

We watched this man launch his boat then head off fishing with his dog.

I think his dog wanted to drive the boat.

Great photos Leanne. Sounds like a fab weekend I hope you got to do some sewing as well. I hope there is a nice fire/heater at the house. Im very envious would have been lovely just kicking back doing a bit of stitching!!! Pleased that you managed to get a walk in today. I went for a walk at Pt Willy yesterday and it was rather fresh and there was a couple of showers so we got a bit wet but it was still enjoyable. Have a good week!!
Cheers Sue

Hi Leanne,
Lovely bunting, very cheerful. I almost feel like I was there with you. I love rainbows and you have photographed some beauties. The rugged coastline is so like Cornwall's coast. Sounds like a good time despite the weather.
Love Shirl.xx

Love the pictures Leanne, especially the ones of the boats on the water very tranquil. I have ordered prints of a couple of mine from snapfish they had a deal going on, its nice to have real pictures once in a while.

great bunting, perfect for a little girl. It goes with the rhyme .. What are little girls made of, Slugs and snails and puppy dogs tails :-)

Nicky said...

Love your bunting (I was in the shop when you were picking out the fabric) Where do you get the alphabet letters from?

Jenny said...
