There are compensations to all the travelling on occassions. We were treated to a rather spectacular sunset as we waited for the boat yesterday. The sea had that cold turquoise hue & it was decidedly nippy as we strolled round the shoreline from the car park.
I had my hands full having detoured on our way into Coorparoo to acquire vegetable seedlings ~ a little venture that made us a tad late & not helped as we zoomed onto the school premises to find the construction work was still in effect & there was no seeable parking! Don't you hate that?!
So today was quiet. No home group today so we rounded up the troops & spent a couple of hours watching the island cricketers whack sixes all around the pitch. No not Dino actually. He snavelled his highest score ever in sneaky little singles & left his partner to the big hitting. Lucky too. The big hitter was dropped 5 times! Whew. Exciting stuff.
We have a lovely pitch. OK it's full of bindies & green ants but the view is totally worth a couple of hours of cricket. Big Ficus edge the grass for some lovely shadey spots & the pitch overlooks the channel between us & the mainland. Wouldn't be the first time [nor the last] a stray pod of dolphins has generated more excitement than the game itself. Compensations! ☺
