Greetings From Bonnie Doon

Hello Everyone,

Just a quickie from me ... I'm relaxing at Bonnie Doon, and I have limited internet access !!

We have been here since Sunday, and it has pretty much rained on and off every day. The sun was out for a few hours yesterday (Tuesday), which was lovely. It doesn't really bother me that it is cold and wet ... goodness knows, we need the water !! Lake Eildon has come up a couple of percentage points just these past few days ... it is back up to around 12%.

I have been doing some reading, watching TV & DVD's, and not a lot else. Chicky has a friend up here, and they are having a ball, despite the weather (they are creating a lot of laundry, though ... they seem to keep finding mud !!) ... thank goodness I have a washing machine here !!

Went for a little drive today, took a few photos ... the one above caught my eye for some reason ... will share more when I'm back home again and back on my broadband internet connection !

Anyway, hope your week is going well.

Hugs to you all.

Will come visiting when I get home again.

Take care,

Aren't you having winter there? goodness sakes, you're a great sport!

Val said...

Charming photo, Meow. I'll bet it's so relaxing there if the weather keeps you indoors. The laundry situation is a bit of a downer though!

I'm glad you're getting some rain and that the lake has a bit more water in it.

Make the most of the relaxing days, because you won't have then back in the "real" world...lol!

Good to hear from you, Meow. Hugs

Hi Connie ~~ Great to hear from you at Bonnie Doon. Glad you are enjoying and relaxing while there, apart from laundry. Glad some water is going into Eildon. We have had a wet week here too, which is good.
Enjoy the rest of your stay my friend, Love, Merle.

Alice said...

Glad you're having a relaxing time. Good to hear that Eildon has risen a tiny bit, but oh my gosh, it has such a long way to do, doesn't it? Hopefully, it will be a really good snow season the Spring thaw will boost water levels.
