Cute gifts

Romantic evenings - this little lamp was made from a pattern bought at Quilters' Store, Salisbury - add a wine glass & an LED tea light & you have the lamp.

Last day on Norfolk

 Friends at the Convict Night - good fun.
 We all had a really great night.
 HofM was hauled up in front of the Commandant for being a 'big mouth' - we were all soooooo surprised!
Then, all too soon it was time to leave.

Still on Norfolk

 Had to leave this candle snuffer on the shelf!
 Just love the buttress root system on these trees.
 "Strictly Chocolate" had wonderful shakes.
 Some big bugs over there.
View from Captain Cook Lookout.

Winners on Norfolk

 HofM with friend - they won on the day - we now have a new bread knife!
 They were blown away when they won the Visitor's Team award - couldn't keep the grins off their faces.  It was totally unexpected.
The Governor's Cup award - their names will be added to the list for 2018.

 The colours of these leaves were amazing.
 The views are all amazing.
 Bloody Bridge was built by convicts - lots of stories why it's called 'Bloody' Bridge.
