Holidays

Having a lovely time at St Leonard's...sitting  in the sun , walking on the beach, reading in the sun, reading late in bed in the morning, more reading.....and sometimes some sewing or knitting, but today we went on a 10km walk from Point Lonsdale to Ocean Grove along the beach. We awoke this morning to cloudy skies but it cleared as we drove to Point Lonsdale, the clouds came back and when we started the walk it rained and there was a 16 knot wind howling into our faces, followed up by 21 knot gusts!! Lovely I thought!!! What a great way to spend the morning....I could be in bed reading!!! Lol!! But as we walked the weather got better and we finished in sunshine....and managed to walk the 10km in 1 hour 50 mins....I was so busy talking at the end I forgot to look at the timer!!!
Having trouble with the photos so will be back soon!! I'm back!! Had to go search for the cord for the camera....holiday brain is happening!! Tee Hee!!
Here we go.....

closer to Ocean Grove the weather improved
squishing in to photo with DH and Eileen a work colleague..just before we started...woops , had the cursor in the wrong place and the photos have swapped.....
walking...walking......

we made the finish in 1 hour 50mins!!!! Yay!!!!
Happy holidays!
We had a great display of fireworks near the house on new Years Eve
and we have had some wonderful weather
not so good today, but hopefully the sun will return!
