Who’s on First?

A popular stop for workers to get coffee in Bendigo and I’m sure they must get asked numerous times a day who makes the best coffee?

I stopped to post some letters, say G’day to the fellow leaning on his shovel ๐Ÿ™‚ and took a selfie of my hands courtesy of my side mirror ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Fathers Day to fathers everywhere!

Forgotten

It’s always sad to see untended graves. The cemeteries in larger towns seem to be mown and looked after by local councilsย while smaller ones in outlying areas are forgotten. . .

Nessie

I was intrigued to see reports on Sunrise this morning about a traveller who believes he saw the Loch Ness Monster recently.

Elijah and Eilidh passed by Loch Ness a couple of weeks ago but Nessie must have been hiding ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But . . . they did bring me back this knitting book and now I can knit my own Nessie ๐Ÿ™‚

Perhaps I’ll sit it by our dam and name it the Loch James Monster ๐Ÿ™‚

What has it seen? Who has it seen? What’s inside?

A Taste of Scotland

Elijah and Eilidh brought back a box of delicious Scottish shortbread for Rod. So cute . . . so yummy!

The Scottie Dog shape brought back a wonderful memory for me. When I was a little girl I was given a child-size baking set which included a Scottie Dog biscuit cutter. I still have it among my treasures. I’ll have to dig it out and make some little biscuits ๐Ÿ™‚

Hush

I loved the peace andย serenity of the Lerderderg State park but the strange quiet in our house is hard to get used to.

Elijah and Eilidh are back home and yesterday we met at Bacchus Marsh so they could take Bella home. They had to get back for some visitors so Rod and I enjoyed a picnic lunch at the beautiful nearby park. Despite the cool, cloudy weather there were lots of walkers and fellow picnickers. We’ll definitely go back, perhaps meet up for a barbeque and walk with Elijah and Eilihd ๐Ÿ™‚

But this morning our house seems very quiet without Bella ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Just in Case

I stopped for a break in a small country town on the drive home from Gawler and noticed this old tank parked in a yard beside the rest stop . . . I guess that little town is prepared for anything ๐Ÿ™‚
