When I got back from America I noticed the lovely new wine rack that Murray & his Dad made from some wood scraps in a few hours over Easter - lovely! It's actually some nice Australian Hardwood....not sure of the name...it weighs a ton! It's the first production from Wood & Son Ltd.
We had a nice Saturday - walked along the beach and enjoyed the WARM weather and Murray enjoyed the warm water- people were actually sunbathing - the sun was that hot - in autumn - fantastic!!!
Helen came over for M&M turkey tacos (yummm) and we got stuck into Lost 4 - the dvd set has been sitting here for awhile - although EVERY episode ends with us saying ???WHAT??? - I love it - great great show!
Today we decided we'd walk down along the beach again, enjoy the sun and surf, then head up the Northern beaches for a fish burger.
We went to Newport Beach especially for this cracker - fish on a bun with coleslaw & seafood sauce.
Oh My Gosh - it was amazing!
Afterward we decided to FINALLY go check out Manly Dam - the dam is HUGE - I'd say it's more like Manly Lake
Lots of tiny lily pads - lovely (until I spoke to the guy fishing from the dam & he told us he catches huge eels in there - ewwww no swimming for me!)
They DO have a waterskiing ramp though.... take note!
We will definitely be back to picnic up some time - lovely part of Manly that SO many people had told us about - I'm really glad we checked it out:)
Tonight Murray oiled our Teak table and chairs - they look SO nice now!! Table top took him all of three minutes, the 8 chairs with all their little slats and nooks......took forever!
