Snorkelling at Hideaway Island.
Confession: I didn’t know how to sew.
Mark had to thread the machine and put thread on the bobbin. But I was rather impressed with my first effort! We made a cushion cover for an outdoor cane chair we picked up the side of the road during the council collection in Australia. The piece I’m hold I did all by myself – yep. Mark finished the cover only because I was sorting out dinner!
Organic raspberries at the Port Vila markets.
Tomatoes are in season! Next are mangoes!
The rain was so heavy I wondered whether it would ever stop. There was so much rain one of my papaya trees snapped in half leaving me with lots of green papaya for my green papaya salad recipe.
Apologies for the quality of the photos above, but I was luckier than a butterfly landing on me that I managed to get these shots. Every now and then we’ll hear a strong and loud swooosh and thud into the water. If we’re lucky we’ve looked up in time to see a school of jumping fish! Yesterday I was taking photos of the sunset with my 70-200mm lens which I normally don’t have on my camera and swoooosh… I starting clicking frantically in the direction of the noise hoping I’d have at least one respectable photo.
Growing up on the east coast of Australia I was forced to wake up before dawn if I ever wanted to see the sun over water. I’ve always wanted to see the sun set over water, which before moving to Vanuatu I had seen only a handful of times. But now, I’m blessed to see at least one spectacular sunset every week from my house.
Nature can’t help showing off…
