Flowers, Fresh Air and just a little bit of sewing

Home again from our little one week break away.
We wondered down to the south coast of NSW to a little township called Currarong.
What a delightful little sea side village. It has been almost 30 years since I have been there and apart from some building renovations happening on some of the old style fishing cabins not a lot has changed.
 We drove down through the Southern Highlands and stopped as Mossvale for lunch and I just love taking pictures of flowers and couldn't resist the Tulips....they have almost faded but were still quilt colourful....going to try my hand at growing my own next year.

Almost every colour you could wish for.

Onto Currarong and the last weekend of the school holidays which was also the long weekend holiday was in full swing...people everywhere!
Fortunately once Monday afternoon came around everyone was off home except us....the little village was deserted almost except for a few locals.
So ensured some lovely long beach walks and bush walks around the Beecroft Headland.
The coast here in the Jervis Bay area is rugged and beautiful, whilst it's a wonderful place for the kids to swim amongst the rocks and creek.
On one of our walks we happened upon this tunnel that if you walk in here,

you will come out through there....

and this is the magnificent view on the other side.

Very windy on this day so didn't get too close to the edge.

I did find time to do a little sewing...working on another project pattern for next year....

and  take a drive to Nowra to Jukejema Quilting Barn, said hi to Kim (the owner), bought some lovely Anni Downs fabric to make some early Christmas presents...(hoping to find time)! and also caught up with Vicki from Amberwood Designs who was teaching a class there.

Now it's back to reality and the computer.
