Lovely weekend away

We had such a lovely weekend away at the coast. It was so special to share lots of laughs, food and chat with this great group of ladies. We stayed in a house north of the Bay at Longbeach. We went for a few walks! I know that is hard to believe but I did go! It was fairly chilly on the weekend so it was quite warming to walk. The view from the back of the house and along the walk was lovely.
Here are some of the girls on the walk with Batehaven, I think, in the background. Brought back lovely memories of living in this wonderful part of the world.
This fruit was interesting. We couldn't figure out what it was.

Another highlight of the weekend was the food! It was delicious and we all ate too much! Here is the fruit at breakfast beautifully arranged on a fish plate.

Caroline made us her delicious french toast using her yummy chooks' eggs.
Some of the ladies love puzzles and managed to complete this 1000 piece puzzle! It was very tricky! A few of the hardy girls went for a swim!!!! 
It was a really restful time for everyone. Lots of chat, reading, some stitching, eating and sharing. It is a bit of a shock to be home and have to think about the "chores"!

Your weekend sounds like heaven on earth to me! One day I'll get away on a stitcher's weekend...when I can persuade my hubby to go on a fishing trip elsewhere!
Loved that fruit platter - very clever. And French Toast is one of my favourites too - yum!
