Weekend in Rye
Peceli and I went over to the Mornington Peninsular - via the Queenscliff to Sorrento Ferry, to stay the weekend to help with a Fijian/Australian wedding in the Rye back beach area. John and Rachel. There was little time for sketching, so I only did a few quick pictures - a couple are here - where we stayed at Dadirri. There was a delightful garden outside the flat and like all the neighbours and most of the land there between Rye and Rye Back Beach and St Andrews Beach, there were tea trees. A fire hazard, but some people like to live among nature or barely altered nature. When the boys put down a lovo (Fijian underground oven) which requires about one hour of huge flames, in Rachel's front yard amidst the tea trees, I was a bit concerned as the day was about 35 degrees, but they did get a permit from the Fire Department and the guys watched the early stage of the lovo carefully.
