Wooli in Winter









The view from the house where my brother's family is holidaying in Wooli is spectacular. There is even a lighthouse on the islands 14km away on the horizon (North Solitary Island Lighthouse). They can see whales swimming by from the kitchen sink! Last night my brother smoked some of the fish they had caught on his homemade smoker.

Today we visited and had a wonderful time together. The cousins even spotted some whales to point out to our children. Then they went down to the beach for some beach cricket - and turning Gracie into a mermaid!

A beautiful winter's day

That’s exactly right Diane, cool nights, cold mornings but beautiful in the midday sun.

Beautiful views and lovely mermaid on the beach. Your winter is like our normal summer. We don't have normal summer days at this moment, it's almost 100 degr.F., very unusual.

Your daughter has the perfect hair for a mermaid! It was such a glorious winter's day yesterday - but it did get a bit chilly watching the boys play soccer later in the afternoon! I am going to the "Airing of the Quilts" today at Alstonville.
