Southern scenery

 Last weekend we went out to a lovely little cafe for lunch to celebrate a friends birthday ........... followed by a drive home around the Southern Scenic Route on the south coast. 
The ash cloud that was causing havoc for travellers in New Zealand and parts of Australia made for the most stunning sunset that night.  This photo makes it look pink, but the sky was the most amazing orangey pink colour, like I've never seen it before, simply beautiful.
I have done some stitching and sewing over the last week, and hopefully the sun will come out later today or tomorrow and I can try and get some pics to share.  I hope you're having a great week....................till next time.................happy stitching..........Nicky
