Yesterday was a rough old day - both on the water and for us. The wharf area at Eden is called Snug Cove. I have always loved that name as it's conjures up such safety for the local fishing fleet.  However yesterday afternoon it wasn't very snug at all. The wind was whipping around so much I could barely stand still to take these photos.

I decided we all needed a little treat for lunch so I went about bought local fresh fish, calamari and chips.  I took these photos while I was waiting for the fish to cook.  The fish shop is about 30 steps from where they unload the fish. That's lovely and local food isn't it.

Beautiful Two-fold Bay was filled with white caps and the local fishing fleet was being rocked about.  I didn't stand outside too long.  But long enough to find a pop of sunshiney yellow...not in the sky but this dinghy.

My plans for mum have changed. No good news in the brain CT Scan yesterday. Instead of the nursing home in Eden that she was going to spend a few weeks in, I'm taking her to RPA Hospital in Sydney for more tests.  We're driving back together today so I'm hoping the wind has died down and the weather is ok for us.



  1. Even on a windy, cold day Eden looks beautiful xT

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your mum!
    As for Eden, your posts are still making me jealous as ever!

    Hi Fiona, Just caught up on your blog. So sorry to hear your Mum is so unwell, hope you both get some answers from the tests. Also get your daughter to sit on a couple of sheets of newspaper, I know it sounds strange but it really does work with stopping car sickness, we used it when our kids were young and had fantastic results.
    Take Care.. xo

  6. Your mum is in good hands with you. Hope the tests reveal all is well.

  7. So sorry to hear about your Mum pet. I am thinking of you.
    A-M xx
