tumby - day 11

This morning's alarm clock was delayed until 9am to give the kids a chance to catch up from last night's  Jimmie Barnes concert and the late night.

So  by 9.45 the kids were at their last day of Family Mission. I headed out to the Sandbar on the low tide of just .10 of a metre. This meant a lot of the sandbar was out of water and looking rather lovely. I wanted to photograph it from a different angle, so I headed out to the far side and shot the Sandbar looking back to Tumby and the shacks on Elfrieda Drive.

I got back in time to whiz down the street to pick up some fresh bread rolls for lunch and picked up the kids from the Mission Bus. Just as well they weren't on their scooters today as their hands were full of the craft things made during the week.

Lunch. Chill. Quick visit to the Library before heading to VacSwim. Today was the last day for that too. Sean passed his level 2 and Annie her level 5.

We came back here for the kids to shower off and change before we headed over to a friend's home on the marina where the kids dropped nets for Blue Swimmer Crabs. They ended up with a surprising 2 for the fridge. It was a very leisurely afternoon watching the kids have fun.

I checked on my emails and found that I had won a Qantas $1000 voucher courtesy of Canon!!!! Mega Wahooooo. And awesome timing. Kym and I are in the throes of planning to take the kids to New Zealand in the 2013 snow skiing season and the voucher will be perfect for that.

Calamari tea with Kym's catch from this morning while the kids were at Mission. I headed out to see if there was any sunset potential  Since we've been here there has been very little cloud in the sky to fire up for sunrise or sunset. Tonight was a gentle sunset.
