Hello November...but where did October go?

Hi everyone, well it's November and also Melbourne Cup Day so good luck to those of you that have backed "a winner"! It is bad though when I think what happened to October...what did I achieve ...definitly not much in the craft department...haha!

We have been spending alot of time on our house and especially our pool area since that is where we will be spending the majority of the time from now on! We have hit the 40+ degree weather now but Kimani our Aussie Bulldog doesn't mind all that much because that means she gets to spend the afternoons inside in the air conditioning!

I have been working on a few things though and one is our trip north and I have done a scrapbook page on our stop over in Exmouth. Exmouth is a beautiful place on the coast of Western Australia - beautiful marine life with the Ningaloo Reef which is famous for the Whale Sharks. Now we were there at the end of January which is actually their off season. The town was pretty much deserted and therefore limiting in terms of where to stay, eat etc. This however did prove also to be an advantage because we had an entire beach to ourselves as you can see in the photos and Kimani had so much fun in the water. BUT this night was also the worst of the trip because in our whole trip this is the one place that didn't allow us to have a cabin because we had Kimani (even with her staying outside) so we had to tent it in 40+ degree weather and 30 degree's overnight...no sleep was had and we left as soon as we could the next morning! But I do want to go back because it is great there and not overly far from where we are living now. We will be going in peak time though which is winter so we can go swimming with the whale sharks !!

I love the centre photo as it reminds me of one of those photos you see in tropical oasis tourism shots and you think the water could never be so blue or clear or so calm (or so deserted) but it actually can...haha! And to add to how special the day was...this is a dog that doesnt normally like the water!
