Car picnic

As tempers were starting to fray and with us both feeling a bit of cabin fever, we decided to pack a picnic and head OUT! It looked like being the last sunny day for a while too, so an ideal day to go. (I honestly don’t know how Mum is coping – she’s such a trooper.)

The Golfer bought a fresh loaf of bread and some chocolate muffins (guaranteed to help chase away the blues), and I made up some salad sandwiches, added some bananas and coffee, along with our puzzles and kindles. Enough of a mix of good and treats, I thought.

Into the car, music on and we were away down the freeway and ended up here

We ate our picnic in the car, only leaving it to use the nearby amenities, conscious of others and checking out people population (not many) before doing so. From the window of the car I took these pics, getting a blast of fresh sea air while doing so which helped sweep away the cobwebs.

The tide was out, well actually on the turn, so the sand bar was exposed

These girls were on skiffs, and one jumped off onto the sandbar, dragging her skiff onto the sand then proceeded to jump and do bombs into the water, it must drop straight down at that point. She had a ball, as did her little dog who ran like crazy around the sandbar.

a man was out fishing; not too sure how success he was

and just before we left another was sailboarding, moving at a great rate of knots with the stiff breeze

the seagulls were enjoying the sandbar too, basking in the sunshine

From the front of the car I could see these houses; what lovely views they must have across the water

This seagull

was balancing like a ballerina, using wings and feet to keep him there in the buffeting breeze. He was a long way up

It was delightful just relaxing in the car with the windows down just a little, and I must admit to having a little doze after doing the sudoku.

Feeling very refreshed and in a much better frame of mind, we traveled home. And despite the new rules, this trip was needed; we’ll cope better in the coming days.

Hope you’re doing ok Dear Peeps.

Much love

    I am not a beach loving kinda of girl, but the colour of the water looks beautiful. You don’t want to know about the cabin fever/stresses of working and living together….parents and son & daughter! Our son decided to live with us for 2 weeks, as his partner had to self isolate as she had recently been in Canada. Keep well!

    Love this post…thank you. Also love Inverloch, used to go down there a lot when I lived in Korumburra and then Leongatha. When I managed the Leongatha Medical Group practice we had a practice at Inveroch too so I used any excuse to pop down there! thanks for cheering up my day!!

  6. Such a good idea! It’s not the weather for that at the moment, but when we walked down to the river a couple of days ago, we got a whiff of sea air, which certainly helped!

    There is a lot of argument here about going out, with over-zealous police putting up road blocks and demanding to know why people are out in their cars. Some shopkeepers were even told that they couldn’t sell Easter eggs, as they aren’t essential. Well, by Easter Sunday, children will have been at home for 3 weeks, so I think it’s essential that they get Easter eggs!!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
