Some random photos that I took to use in the blog...

However, for whatever reason the photos weren't used. On our recent 1 night stay on the Gold Coast, DH and I went to Fingal in northern NSW, to have a look around. I had never been there before! We walked along a track which lead up a hill to a headland. And that is where Fingal lighthouse is. I noticed that it's quite small compared to other lighthouses that I've seen. Small it may be, but it has been  very effective.

The other lot of photos are some that were taken by DH with his phone, whilst on his New Farm walk last Saturday...he found these interesting sculptures near Brisbane's Powerhouse complex.

The grille on the front suggests that it is the FX model which came before the famous FJ. 

Here's a very fetching Mrs Sheep?

Today I've been working on a knitting project as well as a sewing one...more information in a future post :-).

We do live in a beautiful, vibrant city, with idyllic beaches and countryside in every direction - we are indeed fortunate!

Hello Maria,

Thanks for sharing your photo's. That sheep is amazing. I bet she gets photographed all the time.

Have a great weekend.

Great photographs as always Maria. I made a double-take when I saw the photo of Mrs Sheep. That's where I go for my walk along the river at Teneriffe. Then I read that this photograph was taken by your husband when you were at the blogging workshop. That explains it all. Mrs Sheep is so cute. I remember the first time I noticed it when it first went up, couldn't resist lingering and it always cheers me up to see her there near the old wool stores.
