Here and there

We have had a busy time the last few days and not a lot of sewing has happened. We had settlement on the new (to us) house on Friday, so on Saturday morning we moved some things in, just a car load for me, I lost count of how many times I walked up and down the stairs both here and there.
this is where we are going to.
Then Saturday afternoon we drove to Queenscliff ad got the ferry to Sorrento, big experience for the Supervisor, he did not like the stairs so we had to take him on the lift!!!
The  we drove to Neerena (2hrs)and found our friends at their holiday place.
They have 5 acres in beautiful dairy country, it reminds me of NZ.
Jenny and I did some geocaching in the evening
first cache at the local cricket ground

second on the side of the road...fantastic cache holder!!

just because!!

the view from the house in the morning

I love these ducks by the pond, which was full of frogs!!

We went for a walk along the Great Southern Rail Trail, we did a return trip of about 6km, punctuated with finding geocaches!!!

The supervisor was ok on the ferry home, just not sure about what was going on!!
I didn't get a lot of sewing done but some bits and pieces
a little applique on a block for the Seachange Quilters raffle quilt for next years show

a little stitchery, sorry this one has gone sideways!!

and the start of a scarf for KOGO.
I am off to return my library books and then off for a sewing day at Bellarine Quilters.
Happy sewing.
