Making more progress

Another visit to the coast this weekend to check on progress. The roof is on and the windows are in, so it is starting to look more like a real house. We can get a good sense of the proportions now too – its very different looking at something as a drawing then seeing it in 3-D – that type of spatial thinking has never been my strong point. The first shot is from the street side, and the second is from the beach side.
Lengthy discussions with electrician and plumber on power points, switches, siting of the shower heads and the mechanics of wall hung toilets. I was quite exhausted at the end of the day!
Karl couldn’t resist setting up his telescope to check out the view – saw lots of humpbacks frolicking off on the horizon – the juveniles are still very far out, still a few weeks before the mums and calves start migrating close in to shore – then you can easily see them, and what a delight they are.
Just after we got home I got a call from daughter number 2 to look after Lincoln for an hour or so while she and Dad went to the gym, so I took the opportunity to take a snap – now three months old, and being baptised next weekend – should look angelic in the family heirloom christening gown.

I managed a little stitching on my octagon quilt blocks – must find out what the name of that pattern is.

  1. The castle is starting to look good Hilary and I can really appreciate why you are going down there with a view like that.My how Lincoln has grown–and I can see a slight resemblance to you (but don't tell anyone that I said that).
