They weren't kidding when Spring had arrived. Melbourne gave us lots of sunshine and warmer temperatures over the weekend and this was such a refreshing sight! However, along with sunshine, rain is also forecasted for the entire week. Urgh. Spring rain!
On Saturday, we went to get supplies for my new projects. I had decided that I would make the majority of my Christmas presents this year. So I went to the material shop and got materials for myself, my nephew and niece and my sister. When I saw this feather material, I knew I had to make it into a top. I'm going to take that material and make the top from a Japanese sewing book I bought last year.
On Sunday, with a high of 19C, we decided to have a little road trip to Mornington Peninsula.
We took our trusty Subaru and headed south to the coast. It was a short drive, around an hour or so and we got to the coast. Aaron and I love spending time around rockpools and looking at what's living in this awesome tidal pools.
|A closed up anemone. It looks so awesome.|
|The rocks covered in slippery refreshingly green seaweed.|
|We put the closed anemones in a rockpool|
|And watched it open up.|
|Warmer weather is perfect for orange shorts!|
|A gorgeous starfish with crazy patterns and colours|
Then for lunch, we headed to Stillwaters at the Crittenden vineyard for a three course meal.
|Half a dozen oysters each|
|Utterly delicious aged beef with lentils, celeriac mash and shallots.|
|My dessert of honeycomb, strawberries, meringue and chocolate mouse.|
|Aaron's chocolate torte with pistachio ice cream.|
What a gorgeous weekend!
