Another sunset, books & fire

Another sunset over Yanchep, taken on the way to book club. All of us have different opinions on ‘The Shadow of the Wind’. Once again a very good & stimulating evening!

This afternoon a fire caused quite a bit of concern. According to the news it is still burning this evening. Thank goodness the wind has dropped.

Full Moon Easter

Finished reading ‘The Clan of the Cave Bea’r by Jean M Auel a couple of days ago. I must be one of ‘the others’ as my eyes became wet at the end. Am looking forward to the next volume ‘The Valley of the Horses’.

Then I read ‘The Notebook’ by Nicholas Sparks & finished it an hour ago. Very beautiful & heart rending love story. Sniff, sniff – glasses off , blow nose, not to be read without a tissue box handy (or a handkerchief that will have to be washed).

Now to the weather, warming up again, water temp 22ยบ this morning, chilly wind. Full moon on Good Friday.

Busy last week getting ready for visitors, printing out canvas for the exhibition at blender & thinking about what to do for the Wanneroo Art Award.

Weather fine, water is still warm, looks like it could be a good Easter.

Have just finished reading ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, very interesting read to say the least, 521 pages of twists & turns!

My collection of ‘stuff’ just gets bigger!!

Have just finished reading ‘True Believer’ by Nicholas Sparks, very enjoyable. Now reading 'Clan of the Cave Bear’ by Jean M Auel. Fascinating story of life in the Ice Age, all 587 pages! Off to meet Liz Byrski on the 28th March would like her to sign my ‘Remember Me’ Christmas present.

The weather: bit warm but bearable with cooler nights. Good swimming weather. Sea breeze just kicked in - nice.
