|Port Lincoln marina|
From here I also went swimming with sea lions. The day I booked was cancelled due to bad weather but luckily I was able to go the next morning. The sea lions were very curious and as soon as we dropped anchor near their beach the teenage seals came out to play. The captain of the ship kindly lent me her underwater camera and I managed to take these shots.
As you can see they came very close and touched me with their whiskers (known as vibrissae).
We stayed in a beautiful stone cottage.
|Hermitage Garden Cottage|
There was a trilingual library and a perfect chair where I could sit and sew.
Port Lincoln also had a beautiful patchwork shop - The Patchwork Pear.
On the trip I mostly worked on hand piecing hexies for GiG. I don't like the glue method so I thought I'd try and just use paper clips - they look great but totally unworkable when it came to sewing them together :D
I ended up tacking the fabric down without going through the papers.
Since I've been home I've done a bit more catching up on the Gossip BOM.
Along the way there were some interesting rock formations...
Next instalment - the actual Nullabor!
