We seem to have jumped rapidly from Winter to Summer here with temps in the 30s. But there are quite a few signs to let us know it really is still Spring.
Our ornamental pears are in full blossom and the bees are loving it.
Even when driving around the countryside there is colour everywhere from the crops.
We headed up the coast earlier this week to a spot of whale watching. We took a cruise out of Eden and were not disappointed. The weather was perfect and the humpback whales were ready to put on a show.
A couple of whales decided we were worth investigating and swam around and under us for half an hour.
Love the photo of this one swimming under the boat with its belly faced upward.
We soon found another whale that wanted to display its skills breaching. It was magnificent and the noise when it landed on the water surface was loud.
We were out on the water for 3 hours and had whales in sight for nearly all that time.
When it was time to go we even had one wave us off.
We are very lucky to have these magnificent creatures swimming down the east coast for the next few months.
I have been doing some stitching, although not a lot.
The third snowman for the yearly set is done.
And I am working on a felt table runner. One end is close to finished.
It is a big sporting weekend here with 2 major football grand finals and some holiday weekends.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
