Update re my Mum, an even bigger thank you and Weekend away in Olinda - Part 3
An even bigger thank you goes out to all my blogging friends for the kind prayers and good wishes you are sending to my mother and father. It is still a worrying time for us, as the coughing and hacking which accompanies pneumonia is putting a greater strain on her heart. So, all we can do is continue to pray and hope for a good recovery. I do so appreciate the support of my stitchy friends at this time.
I am stitching but not up to taking pics, so I thought that I would show you some more of our Olinda weekend away - it seems an oasis free from worry, now.
This is Miss Marples, a gorgeous teahouse all done up as if it were in St Mary Mead. Miss Marple herself and Agatha Christie would be proud.
Sunset from the balcony of our apartment:
The legend of the wishing tree began around 1900.
This area was heavily wooded and a 4 year old boy, Billy Langton became lost.
His father searched everywhere and finally came to this spot. He wished he could find his son and as he looked through the circle in the tree he saw young Billy squatting beside the creek.
Local legend says if you wish hard enough and look through the magic circle your wish will come true!
This lady was brave enough to pick up this kookaburra who was trapped inside when he flew in to steal people's food!
Here he is again, no worse for wear:
Well, that is all for now. Take care all my dear blogging friends,
