Let's go for a walk

One day last week when I had had enough of emptying boxes, Clarice and I went for a walk. It takes me less than a minute to get here where I can sit and watch these guys. At any time of the day there is always someone body boarding.

Remembering it was at this end of the day this guy came rushing down the rocks to where I was standing said a quick "hi" and proceeded down to the waters edge. He quickly put on his flippers and in he went.

Transmision resumes

I have been absent for a while. Lots of things happening in my life. Moving into our beach house at Port Elliot being the most exciting thing. This is the view from the balcony.

My view

We are one street back from the beach but I can see the water between the houses across from us. I can hear the waves pounding the shore, it is perfect.

I also have a wonderful view of the hills out of the kitchen windows.

On one of my many trips back and forward I stopped to take these snaps of the Corellas feeding on pine cones. I could actually hear them munching on the cones while I was taking the photo.

I had a couple of days in Moonta looking after my mum and Charlotte, here she is playing in the rain.

On our first weekend at Port Elliot Sean went for a surf and we went for a walk. Note lack of suitable foot wear on Lucas and Tony.

The Family

I have done very little sewing but have taken lots of walking pictures so will be back soon with some more snaps.
