We have been up to Tweed Heads for a few days to visit Mike's dad and to soak up a little warm weather.
One of the things I had forgotten was that the Jacarandas would be in bloom. The one pictured is in the back garden of a house near my father-in-law's house and as the plane takes off over that area we can see this tree from the air. So beautiful.
The pictures in the collage are of Greenmount Beach at Coolangatta (Queensland) which is by far my favourite place to have a swim. The water was 21degrees which is a lot warmer than down here: the locals thought I was mad to want to go in at that temperature but it is so lovely with the surf crashing around.
Later in the evening we had heavy rain and lots of thunder: further north the storm was much worse with quite a lot of damage I think.
We are home again with our warm socks on and the central heating warming us up.
I have been doing a lot of stitching so will show you the results in the next day or so.
