Before and after – garden transformation

This is a before and after on a much larger scale than my footpath chairs – it is our back garden!

When we moved into our home the previous owners had done their best to ‘neaten’ up the rear garden to present for sale. As a friend kindly pointed out, we were so lucky to have our very own brick extremely oddly sized helipad!

Deciding what to do…

We knew we wanted a deck, so that was locked-in. We had no choice but to remove the square grass, even though I had successfully resurrected it, because Jack (our 4 legged companion) had turned it into a lunar landscape (whilst safely stowing several bones). We also demolished 2 of the 3 brick planter boxes to make way for the deck.

I love an old bike… located in a cafe with a quirky style

During our recent holiday we went exploring (a day trip planned by my sister).

She had been recommended a hidden little gem called Cafe Espace. It is off the coats of Gippsland in Eastern Victoria, waterfront dining situated on Raymond Island with stunning views overlooking Mcmillan Strait to the Paynesville township. So, five of us set off in the car, took the ferry across (in the car) about 100m to arrive on Raymond Island. Map of Location

The word island has a habit of conjuring up a mental image of blue skies and sunshine, white sand, palm trees, crystal clear water lapping at the shoreline – there was none of that.

But Raymomd island was unique in it’s own way.
