From the Other side

A couple of months ago myself and two other friends did the climb to Barrenjoey Lighthouse and today being the lovely day that it was hubs and I decided to go for a drive to West Head which is directly opposite the lighthouse across Pittwater.


I was very impressed with our effort on the day that we did the walk to the lighthouse but I was even more impressed today when looking across to the headland as to just how steep the climb actually was.  

The drive out to West Head from the main road is about 15 kms and many pretty wildflowers can be seen along the way especially at this time of the year.


The views are stunning from the headland.  Looking north towards Lion Island with the Central Coast behind it.

Looking south from the lookout down towards Newport.  

Time to head on home and into the sewing room to sew up the black and white log cabin blocks.


Now that 9 rainbow blocks  are complete it is time to have a play  and get them into order.  The layout will be 3 blocks across by  3 blocks down which will end up a lap size quilt when finished.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Well done you for completing that exhausting walk/climb. Pittwater and the views to the Central Coast are gorgeous. The black and white blocks are fabulous. They will make a lovely quilt.
