the week that was....

new nail colour
bonfire season!
three to burn...started in the morning...
 the tree caught on fire...
all good it didn't stay on fire!
 left the biggest one for night burning, 
as it was quite warm and a bit windy in the morning...
(that's why the tree caught on fire...wind!)
 love watching the sparks fly up
 one of my morning walks...
love this place...peaceful
 thunder lightning and lots of rain
 roast beetroot from my friends garden...yum
 blueberry and lemon cake...more yum!
 same walking place, very different morning
 birthday celebrations for two work colleagues
 different side of the lake, 
another beautiful morning walk

a little trip away...

 just before Christmas we bought this!

 this was our first offical trip away...
below is a night visitor that I really didn't want!
apparently the people before us were feeding them....
they thought we were going to do the same, NOT!
 this gorgeous guy was very welcome....
he had a ball with all the grubs and bugs he was catching
 a visit to the Holden Museum was on the agenda...
some great old cars, well worth the visit.

 can't go to Echuca without a trip on one of these
 the tiny kitchen with everything right at arms length!
the historic wharf and 2 more very old paddlesteamers
part of the old mill that used to be on the site...
time for some of these....34 degrees every day we were there!
