This morning in Victor

I had a blood test this morning which means being in at 8 am with no breakfast. I do this about every 3 months.
John wanted the mail and I needed some things from the shops, some of which didnt open until 9 am so I went down to the beach near the Hindmarsh River opening to the sea and sat and sketched these groins which are rotting away. Had a walk and got a damp and sandy bottom. It was quite cool but very pleasant, the odd person walking a dog who obviously thought I was mad sitting with sketch and painting stuff on my knee.
Well I have made a Christmas (boiled fruit) cake and done some washing and am progressing with Millies first Christmas ornament, which is taking more time than I thought.
With awful fires on Kangaroo Island I am wondering what it will be like when we get over there next week.

I haven't heard the word 'groins' used in this way. My ignorance. No sketching for me at present as I'm vaccuuming like mad - now that's something to see - and helping family get together in Brisbane when there are plane delays from Fiji and apartment keys to pick up etc.

Could well have spelt them incorrectly Wendy but that is what we have always called them.
