Weekend at the coast

The last few weeks have been busy and I hadn't blogged about a lovely weekend at the coast recently. Each year a group of us head to the coast, Denham's beach in fact, for a delightful retreat. We enjoy each other's company, good food and have a very relaxing time doing whatever we like! There were 11 of us this time.
We started the weekend with fish and chips in Batemans Bay. This was the view from the restaurant.

 This big stingray was a bit exciting to see!
 We stay in a lovely house and this is the view from the verandah.
 Some people swam (a bit too chilly for me), walked, played games, chatted and did jigsaws.
 A few of us enjoyed reading too. This book sounds a bit miserable but is a wonderful read.
 I started to crochet this scarf. I bought the thread last year at a craft show and am lovely making this. It is quite a bit longer now so will have to show you my progress later on.
 There was also some lovely show and tell at our last class before the holidays. Sally had finished her gorgeous bag.

 She has also finished stitching this project from Urban stitches.
Best get organised as Fiona will be here soon and we need to get ready for Stitching on the Lake again!
