Weekend away was cancelled!


The weather was quite bad with very strong winds starting last night that the football game for Chris this morning was cancelled so we let the kids watch a program on TV that ends a bit late but we know they can sleep in, no need to hurry to leave for the mainland. When we got
to the ferry at 10:30AM, the ferry can't sail for a couple of hours because of high water so went back home. We went back 1:30PM but still too high and doesnt really know when it will be resumed. Expected was about at 4PM, then for us will be very late, as we have to travel 2hours after the ferry ride and will be at our destination at around 7PM. So we decided to cancel the outing and will make another appointment next time.




We drove back to our village and had a look at the harbour and WHEW! Now i've seen it for real, last it happened was November last year and only saw pictures of it, now we've taken it ourselves. This doesn't happened very often, it does depends on the weather and the direction of the wind when its really bad.





Grace doesn't want to join me and Chris for the picture and busy calling her friends.





Since our outing was cancelled we decided to go out to dinner to one of our favorite restaurant.

Thank you all so much for all the wonderful comments with the needlecase.

I can say, it was very difficult to part with them all. But so happy the recipients like it.
