Yesterday as we walked along the pebble beach at Findhorn there wasn't much sun. But, the blue of the sky was stunning. There was a weather front coming in from the west that you can see to the left of the photo, it seemed to be chasing the smaller, whispier clouds away. I couldn't resist taking a few snaps.

I already have the same amount again, so hopefully I will have enough for a jar of jam! I will post some pictures of my jam making tomorrow.
We have also had a couple of productive hours in the veggie plot this afternoon. It was time to pick the last of the beans and peas, and dig up the plants to make some room for new ones.
I have grown 'Tumbling Tom's' in my hanging baskets and they have done fantastically well. Again I love hunting for them everyday by twirling round the baskets. I have found a recipe for green tomato chutney, and I'm secretly hoping that some of them don't ripen to give it a go! Well wish me luck on my jam making journey.

We had lunch at Sea Dogs on Rose street (above). The food was amazing, fresh seafood cooked to perfection, and at a bargain price. I had the bacon and thyme mussels, yum!! The china was eclectic and mis-matched, as was the furniture, making a unique dining experience, I recommend visiting as soon as you can!
Today was spent wandering around the zoo, feeling like kids again. My other half has taken so many photos with our new camera, I'll post some soon. My favourites are the koalas and all the colourful birds, I really feel inspired by the colours to try and create a bold piece of work, pens at the ready. Watch this space.
