My Time With Kris

My trip to visit Kris in Yorketown was so much fun and very relaxing. Its so good to have quality time with old friends. Just being in each other's company and having a laugh. I must say Kris spoilt and pampered me a bit. She did some alterations to a few of my clothes yay, but I think Friday night was the ultimate in spoiling. Kris had planned to cook me dinner on Friday night. She knows I love her meatloaf and roast vegies but before she put dinner on she ran me a bath, infused the bath water with some relaxing Radox and lavender bubble bath, lit some incense and told me to go and relax while she cooked dinner. As I was soaking, surrounded by bubbles, Kris brought me in a cup of coffee. I don't have a bath at home. We only have a shower and Kris knows I miss my bath time. While I was away I had such a sense of freedom, I made an appointment at the hairdresser and had my hair cut short. I will post a pic as soon as I can get someone to take a photo.

Kris' little cottage.

In the garden down the side.

Out the back.

Here's Kris sewing.
There are salt pans scattered around the area and in certain light they are pink.
Not sure if the photo captures that.

Main street of Yorketown.

Main street.

The old hotel in which we had a nice lunch of roast beef and roast vegetables.
The other hotel across the street.

Can't go anywhere without a visit to the cemetery.
Reading the headstones gives me a sense of the history of the place.

On the way home I saw this kangaroo sculpture.
Its companion the emu had been stolen by some pranksters.
It has been found and is waiting installation.

What a wonderful friend! I thought the salt pans are very pink! Not much vegetation in town? Another superb artist date!
