10 Minutes From Home

Hi Everyone, not a lot to report I had a very quiet weekend, so tonight showing a few photo's I took before Christmas on My way home after playing bowls . at Corowa. Today Tuesday we played pennant at Wangaratta our rink got up by 1 shot but lost over all, I was glad to see the end of the game today it was rather hot the temperture got to 34c= about93f on the rink, play is stopped once temp reaches 36c..When I got home I went for a dip in the pool to cool off, then cooked my dinner after dinner was our turn to water the garden . were allowed to water between 8pm and 10pm tuesday and saturday .. In the morning I hope to spend a couple hours in the garden before it gets to hot. For anyone who wants to see a few more photo's of Yarrawonga. look here from earlier post Thats all folk ..

The red Gums showing the water level dropping N.S.W side of the lake
some bird life on the lake
Pelican very close to shore.
Pelican heading away from shore
water level is well down in this part of the lake New.SouthWales Side

more bird life on the lake
Back in Victoria a few minutes from home at sunset
the water so calm you can see the reflection of the Pelicans
I love the colours of the sun setting and the reflection of the trees in the water
sunsetting over Lake Mulwala
the end to a perfect day

Dear Jan ~~ Great photos of the lake and with the sun setting. Lovely.
You sure get around with the Bowls
and you must get tired especially when it's hot. Glad they cancel at 36C. It was 37 here today, but luckily for me I spent most of the day indoors. Take care, Love, Merle.

Those are nice pictures, Jen. It is soooo calm, just inviting me to bring my kayak.

Thank you for the nice comment, Adi does eat ice cream every night before her bedtime. Just after we finish ours.
We don't let her eat chocolate though. Chocolate if very bad for dogs, most of them.

are you having drought conditions again?? I remember hearing about the rain that came that you needed so badly.

It's beautiful, nonetheless

Jen,

These photos are GREAT! I loved every one of them! The pelican , if that's what it is- is just perfect- with his mirrored reflection. And also the sunsetting- with the sun still showing above the lake!

Thanks,


Junie

Hi Jen, love those sunset photos, they're magnificent. Great photos of the pelicans, too.

Gee you can still water your gardens? We can't at all, unless we have rainwater tanks. Big fines if we use town water. That's what level six restrictions are...no outside watering at all.

Hi Jeanette, love the photos ... it is a beautiful part of the world where you live ... sigh !!
Hope you are well, and keeping out of mischief.
I just mentioned on Gwen's blog that I really enjoyed catching up last September at Merles, and hope we can do it again sometime.
Take care, stay cool ... Meow
