I have blistered feet and am a bit sore. I have never had blisters on the soles of my feet before! But, I did walk for over 4 Km. That is the first time in 22 months that I have made it that far. Up until now about 700 metres has been the best I could manage. I think that blistered feet are a small price to pay. It was beautiful walking through the Melaluka forest, if a little dry.
When I reached the beach on the other side of the island there was a strong North Easterly blowing. ( Strong for here, everything is relative.)
Some of the Stone Kerlews are raising chicks.
I saw the two that live out the front of our house put on a turn when Larry the lizard walked out under the sprinkler. They must have eggs somewhere.
This was also the first "Artisans Collective's" exhibition. They have about 40 members and the exhibition was a great success.
It was held at 'Mudlo' which is a local residence. They have a beautiful drive up to the house.
As night fell the paper barks were lit up by spot lights and they waved in the breeze against a dark blue sky.
There are lots of places to sit in this beautiful garden. (Although I know there are lots of pythons in the bush.)
There was quite a range of art available, from Metal Sculpture to Oil paintings. This beautiful knitted shawl sold quickly.
And I have to say that the beadwork pieces were my favourite. (Most of these also sold.)
We also have some very talented professional musicians who live on the island. The music took one away.
Walking home I saw that lots of gardens had their Iris in bloom.
Now I must get back to stitching. I have some ideas for brooches.
