Home Again

Well all good things must come to an end....that is the way of vacations. I had a very relaxing time, making a concerted effort to have a bit of a break from the online world.....mostly succeeding. Slowing down and taking each moment as it came.
The odd treat and disappearing between the covers of 7 wonderful books was just bliss.
I also did some slow stitching, enjoying adding extra rows to my Clamshell quilt. I am over halfway now.
Lots of watching the locals and the ebb and flow of the river estuary and beach walks.
We did go a-touristing, firstly  into the hinterland to beautiful Minyan Falls.
And managed to get lost as we always do lol! But such a pretty place.
Secondly we dropped by the Byron Bay Lighthouse for coffee, cake and the views.
Some silly (me) decided it would be good to walk off our cake and go out to the point at Little Watagoe Beach......mainly stairs going down.....which meant....coming up!
Beautiful walk but I was shattered by the time I got to the carpark....and my calves screamed for days.....but I  figure you don't see things in your chair...so do it if you are able.


Hubby experienced the lament of most fishermen......only 2 keepers! So "fishy" dinners were mostly from the local fish 'n' chip shop! But I suspect paddling around in his kayak was a treasure in itself.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend.....we have birthday people.
Hubby's today and little Granddaughter early in the week.
It's nice to be back and I have lots of blog reading and news to catch up on.
There is a new Art Blog post also....HERE if the mood takes you.
I have a blog approval in place at the moment to try and combat a whole lot of spam I was getting....just in case you wondered.

Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
