The weather was fine,
We had a magical time,
With cakes, coffee tea,
So perfect for me,
Hiding just out reach,
The mountains behind the beach,
They will be memories I will cherish,
And the stories I don't need to embellish,
A day filled with wonder,
In gorgeous down under,
Thank you once more
For a glorious day on the shore!!!!!!


What a wonderfully, whimsical tale you have told! Thank you for having me!

This blog used to be called Lilly Cottage and within its archives you will find many many posts about my gorgeous little cottage shop that was at Old Petrie Town. I had a shop there with my friend Laura for over four years though had to close it due to my nasty MS. Now I am sea changing, creating and loving life at a slightly slower pace ( I said slightly). Enjoy my blog. Kiss Noises Linda
