Beach time

We live at the beach all the time now. It's pretty good.

Here we are one day last week when we went to Back Beach. It was cold and windy, but sunny.
We had a bracing romp in the fresh, fresh air and the cool, cool water.

And a quick stop at the local co-op on the way home as well.
Nice smelly fish for tea!

Gardening fun

We've been having fun in the garden. First, Neil took out the old orange tree stump. It was huge, like an iceberg.
(I'm happy to report that Neil's right foot survived his dubious hatchet technique!)
 With the stump out of the way, it was time to build some raised garden beds. They started out like this.
Then this.
 3 cubic metres of topsoil are coming tomorrow... that's going to be a BIG pile of dirt to be shifted! Good thing dogs don't have opposable thumbs - we won't have to shovel.
Boxes filled and the start of the Airedale netting in place.
Gracie surveys her world every morning at dawn from this vantage point...even in the rain.

 Yep, garden's secure and no kangaroos in sight.
 She sits really close to the edge.
Who me?
