Yesterday I decided I needed an 'inspiration' day. I think the pot holders started it. When R called at lunch time to suggest a bike ride down the Mornington Peninsula followed by a walk along the beach all my good intentions of doing a full day of sewing went out the window.
It was the perfect day for getting outside - warm, not too sunny, a nice breeze. There are lots of fun things about being a bikie chick for the afternoon - getting to wear a leather jacket and shiny red motorcycle helmet, cruising down country roads at speeds too fast to mention, and feeling the wind rushing past you. The not so fun things - helmet hair, and riding past piles and piles of hard rubbish on the return trip and knowing you can't stop to pick anything up. Though I did entertain the idea of balancing a vintage suitcase on my lap.
Our destination for the afternoon was Bushranger's Bay - this is the view from the walking track before you descend down the stairs to the beach.
The ocean was so blue! And the water was freezing - I had contemplated going for a bit of a swim but as soon as the first wave washed over my feet that idea disappeared.
I always have to take a picture of my feet. It's become a strange habit of mine.
Today things are back to normal - a big pile of cushion covers are waiting for zips to be sewn in. Some tote bags need handles. And there is a trip to the post office later this afternoon.
Happy weekend xx
