Down memory lane

 

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.

About Vulnerability of the heart

I am a wife, a mother, and a treasured child of God. My Christian faith is my source of strength. I’ve fallen into the depths of despair and been carried out of it in the loving arms of God. By His grace I have been healed. God has taken me on an incredible journey. I have experienced the painful things of this world and discovered in them God’s love and faithfulness. I believe in a merciful God who has never left me. He is forever faithful.
