Summer and Kangaroo Island to me mean sun, sea and agapanthus.
There are white and blue ones in the garden framing the view of the sea and this year they are magnificent. So a painting had to be done, there is also a lovely little blue and white chinese vase which sets them off well.
Lots of photos have been taken and the odd scrappy sketch but we have been pretty busy, wandering the Island, friends in for drinks ( which went on for hours!).
Today we went to the raptor display, getting up close and personal to kestrels and falcons and a wedge tail eagle as well as some beautiful owls (who are not raptors).
Lunch in a pleasant spot and a walk along a pristine beach, a few shells collected and home to recover!
It is Johns birthday so we are out to the pub tonight. We rang Sarah in New Zealand to wish her a happy Birthday, sounds as if they have been having a lovely time and I facebooked Fenella, the three generations of birthdays on the same day can sometimes be interesting.
Well off to lead a bit more of this hard life!
