Ben wanted to look at a block of land at Silverton, a couple of hours South from where we live. So I decided since we are going that far why don’t we go 5 minutes further and show the kids where I use to go for a holiday when I was a child. We had been this way twice but only to hop on a ferry to Kangaroo Island. Cape Jervis isn’t as popular as Victor Harbor, but in my opinion its just as beautiful. Things have changed since I was a child, but only slightly. There were windmills above Morgans Beach and a few more houses going in the new housing estate, but not much else had change. It was still a little fishing town. The kids absolutely loved Morgan’s beach which was in high tide.
Those steep sweeping sand hills were a lot of fun to play on. It felt nice to show them something that I had wonderful memories about and to see them appreciate the same things that I appreciated when I was a child. I felt really inspired by the trip. The light was lovely, the scenery awesome.
I took photos upon photos (something which I hadn’t done in a while) and have since felt compelled to paint the awesome sights that I saw. Hence the painting in my last post Lady Bay and the water colour painting of Morgan’s Beach Below. Did we buy the block?… no not this time.
