Nature at Easter

MaryEd and I woke up Easter morning and went to a dawn service. We were able to watch the sun rise over the water while a cruise ship was pulling into the town. Smaller fishing boats were buzzing around. 

We had a short drive to Oyster Bay and ate at a very child-friendly restaurant. There was a whole room for coloring, playing with toys, and just having space to be around and not stuck at a table.

Here's the 4 of us at one of the two national parks we visited with full tummies.

Being part of nature and walking along the shoreline was very calming. Windy, but calm.

It was so picturesque, absolutely beautiful. Here are 3 of us pausing with the view behind.

Unlike the other shorelines we've seen in SA, this one was quite hilly and jagged. These are some of the highest cliffs around these parts.

Port Lincoln at Easter

One of the most amazing parts of our trip was visiting with Ken Martin, the artist of this statue. The muscle tension on this animal was so real.

As a port town, there were lots of boats. Here's a shot of the harbor. You have to get up at the crack of dawn to see any action. Fish bite early.

We frequented this restaurant as it had an outdoor eatery area, was right on the waterfront, and across the street from a park with a Nev-sized playground.

Here's Nev in the park. He tried to walk all the way back to the car, but got tired and plopped down.

Nevlin gives a few looks that I used to give, well still give. The squint is a favorite, as well as the "I probably shouldn't really be doing this, but what the heck, maybe I won't get caught & it isn't too bad.

Easter Break with Meme & Gpa

 Nev got to spend his second Easter with lots of eggs, baskets, and family. Here he is with his cheeky grin, hanging with the chicks and cracking some guts and eggs.

We road tripped to Port Lincoln, on the Eyre Peninsula. This is the world's 3rd deepest port!

As per our hotel egg dying trends from year's past, we boiled these babies in the microwave. Everyone had a go with one of the 3 spoons.

The came out pretty good considering what we had to work with. Here they are in all their glory.

Nevlin didn't have a bathtub so we put him in a plastic tub. Sometimes you just make things work. He still enjoyed his cups.

We took an evening off and sat at the waterside. All of the pubs / bars that were in close proximity to our hotel were closed. We sipped a beer and mug of wine watching a bird flap in the surf.

Fit for a Nevvie


Perfect fit for a Nevvie.

Book 'em Danno

Out in the city, when the town had turned dark, people had gone home and the streets turned silent.

Out came the burglars. Perhaps two or three. They robbed three places on Hutt Street before breaking into my business' window, the one just by me.

Anyways, Cameron's business was robbed the other day. Cameron was the first onto the scene. They tore open a historic window from 1839 (poor thing) and broke into locked cabinets, taking computers a plenty.

Cameron called the Police who arrived within minutes. When does that ever happen when there's no emergency? They fingerprinted all over and got a few good ones. Who knows what will happen but I think they really want these guys.

Needless to say, really disruptive at work.
