Sun, shadow and scenery

I’m so glad you all enjoyed participating in the “14 Day Contest”. I know I certainly stitched for more than 1 hour each day……and I suspect it’s time to let you in on the secret of my success!! The Golfer took me away to Merimbula for quite a few of those 14 days – cheating I know! Sorry.

As you can see from these pics, we had a mixed bag of weather

20140927-205307.jpgsunshine, rain, storms, clouds and rainbows, and some lovely displays at sunset

20140927-205435.jpgWe visited our favourite cafe in Tathra. This time we had to sit inside; despite the sunshine the breeze was brisk and quite cool.

Spring flowers were way ahead of Victoria

20140927-205849.jpgWhile I was merrily stitching, The Golfer spent a bit of time outside, practicing his swing……with some friends!!

20140927-210036.jpgI’m sure they thought he was mad and would be much better off joining them for a good feed, than chasing a little white ball…….

We enjoyed a lunch at Pambula Beach

20140927-210326.jpgand took great delight in watching a young family of mum, dad, two toddlers and a baby playing on the sand and chasing/running away from the gentle waves on the beach

20140927-210503.jpgThe squeals of pure joy from the toddlers as their fat little legs took them in and out of the water, racing to dad to “save” them from the waves caused us just as much amusement!

20140927-210737.jpgEven on a gloomy day, there were still sights that are definitely not found in suburbia!

20140927-212344.jpgCafe coffees were a regular event in between golfing and stitching.

20140927-211326.jpgWe only had about 3 days of sunshine where we could sit out on the patio of our apartment, but even still it was a lovely, relaxing, restful time.

    Absolutely gorgeous! What a wonderful way to celebrate spring!….doesn’t get better than a special trip and stitching! I am so happy that you and your golfer both had this special time. We are in the full glory of fall. I am so looking forward to cooler days, fewer summer storms, warm fires and lots of time for stitching and warm wine drinks!

  2. How lovely. If I was one if those wallabies I would hide the golfballs in my pouch – just to irritate the golfers a little bit more !!!

    Have just returned from there!! Had a most relaxing time – too much so to even open my sewing gear. But aren’t those pelicans personality plus.

    I’m glad to see not much has changed in the merimbula vista! However I was glad to see that there are changes for the better at the river mouth, that would have to be my favourite beach, with it’s dappled shade form the enormous gum trees, just the place for a girl with pale skin!! sigh!!

  9. Dear Meredith, your photos are simply divine, thanks for sharing. It is a beautiful part of our country. Hugs Joy

    Certainly agree about Merimbula, our favourite place, also for golfing and of course sewing. Pure bliss.
