No 4- fruit and nut biscotti

What to do with uk in-laws No 4- fruit and nut biscotti. Now as per the last post we have a great deck out the back. You reach it via our dining room which has antique french doors leading out. The garden and birds always seem to beckon. I think we'll have to enjoy some biscotti and coffee on the back deck for afternoon tea! Yum xx Corrina.

No 3-le jardin

What to show the in-laws from the uk. No 3- le jardin
My garden is fragrant and flowerful, I love it at this time of year. It needs some tenderloving care but it still pays me in lavender and roses and birdlife. The front is rambling and cottage style, the back has a series of garden rooms, secret garden, fruit trees, potager, chookyard... We love sitting on the back deck for alfresco eating while visited by black cocatoos, rosellas, bowerbirds, finches... and the best is brekky on the deck- stop and breathe and plan the rest of the day. Perhaps which beach to go to or a trip to some boutiques for retail therapy and a cappuccino. Yep, its a must we have to share our space here- here is where we are, how we live, what we enjoy, kids laughing, birds singing, chooks running around xx Corrina.

What to show the in-laws No 2

Whales spend most of the next few months in Jervis Bay, feeding their babies and putting on a spectacular show for locals and tourists. This image was taken a couple of years ago on a very choppy sea with unpredictable whales it was hard to get a great shot but it gives you a little idea. Whale and dolphin watch cruises run regularly and you are sure to see some gorgeous wildlife and natural beauty while out on the ocean. This shot is one of a baby whale "breaching" we were given a lovely display of mother and babies at play! We are very blessed to live here. xx Corrina.
