Quite a lovely day and I was really thrilled to see a mother swan and her 3 cygnets feeding on the side of a busy road. Many vehicles flying bye not noticing. Me I turned around but as I pulled up closer to the little family mum shepherded her babies into the water to hide behind some reeds. .
Simple pleasures and delights
I watched them for a brief while but mum was quite disturbed so I left. I worked Friday and had to cancel Saturday as I had made arrangements to meet friends at Salamanca Markets. So another day wondering about looking at many things, and buying little. Enjoying friends company and meeting some new people.
Today was our little community village market day which I am one of the organisers of. We began life as a local produce market, but are now encompassing local craft and artisians. Today we had lots of lovely plants, and some vegies, fresh free range eggs, home made cards, cakes, biscuits, homemade bread, goats cheese, pork pies, ginger bread, preserves of all kinds, jams, vinegerettes, flowers, knitted beanies. I love my four hours a fortnight there meeting lots of people both locals and tourists. I also love having choice of so many yummy things. Tonights meal is a ploughmand, a bit of this and that. Pork pie, pickels , I made, and relish I made, goats cheese, some of my quince jelly, olives, more cheeses, delicous.
As I was leaving to go to the markets I noticed the yachts were out. First race of the season a leisurely sail down from Hobart yesterday , and then they race back to Hobart today.
As you can see they were moving fast, lots of wind today.
The weather has again deteriorated and the fire is lit as the wind blows, snug and warm glass of red wine at my side. ahhh I have such a wonderful life, I am so content.
