I'M BACK!!!!!!

Madam camper at the ferry jetty with departing ferry in the background. Gotta love the hat! Why is it some people look good in hats......Not me!
Well some of you may have noticed I have been missing in action (thank you to all you wonderful people who enquired about my welfare). I have actually been away camping in 'swanee' with No 1 husband in Northern NSW at Iluka which is a quiet little fishing hamlet at the mouth of the magnificent Clarence River. It is such a lovely peaceful place and it was just what I needed after my Dad died a few weeks ago. So I did lots of relaxing and walking and generally chilling out.We did a lot of sight seeing and I will probably drive you mad but it is such a pretty part of the world. We endured a couple of fierce storms in the van and I would like to tell you I was brave....but no! Sssscared out of my wits. However the next day we would be rewarded with glorious sunshine and even more beautiful sunsets. We would like to think we earned some kind of camping brownie points. I did get a lot of stitching done which I will show you in another post. All you 'hexie' girls should be very proud of yourselves...you've done your job well! Below are some photos of our position and the stormy skies and some beautiful sunsets.
This was our wake up every morning and look at view from our van.
Would you have been a little nervous of this approching storm????
The sky really was that dark and weird looking with  a myriad of lightning strikes. Even though it was scary it was amazing!
And then we had these magnificent sunsets over the river.
I would stitch under this tree or we would take our end of day drinkies over and watch the sun set. Beautiful!!!
I shall post some more about our holiday later but just wanted to assure you all I am indeed very well except for a bad case of hayfever. I have missed you all and I must admit to lurking from time to time....see what you bloggers have done to me. But as the intro says.....I'M BACK!!!
Blessings Michelle xx

  10. Welcome back Michelle. I guess you;re not a camping virgin anymore. Sounds like the universe chucked a couple of things at you to make sure you knew that even though you get to enjoy Mother Nature she is still the boss.

    You've been missed!
