An oasis in the desert?
This first morning in Roma, I woke up to beautiful blue skies (unlike grey, wintry Melbourne) and some plump chested birds on a wire.
Just to give you a sense of how far we have travelled. Melbourne is way down south and Roma is where the red dot is - over 2000km, but only a fraction of our vast continent!
As I was up early with the birds, I stitched some more on my ornie, my little red figure is taking shape.
Once everyone was up and at 'em, we went to a Bush Nursery, Moorelands Bush Nursery (about 30 mins drive away) for a late breakfast. It was like an oasis in the desert. Lovely plants, quirky tin animals and delicious, inexpensive food.
My gorgeous DIL.
Then later in the afternoon, we went for a walk around the Railway Dam - so pretty!
Some more progress on my Christmas Ornie in the evening, now there is a little doggie, whilst we played some board games (Sushi GoGo and Munchkin Zombies - don't ask! lol!) and later watched The Shining (still scary after all of these years!)
... and then this morning I woke to this beautiful sunrise and to the laughter of a Kookaburra!
Okay, off on more adventures - talk to you all tomorrow.
