....back from the Sea

My soul is full of longing for the secrets of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Quotes

10 days flew by and I'm home again from a lovely holiday with good friends in Plettenberg Bay. We spent some time in the Tsitsikamma forest and Nature Reserve.

There is an amazing tree in the Plaatbos Nature reserve that is a magical part of this enchanted forest, tall and strong with a kindly face it silently watches all who pass.

There are Rain Spiders who spin leaves into their huge webs that hang from the branches, the spider clinging to the underside protectively waiting for the young to hatch



 
...and how beautiful is the ocean at the Storms River mouth, it inspired the colours for the ColourSpun Cotton Club
 
 
 
Have a Happy Day :)

  2. Stumbled on your blog by searching for a 'knitting bear'...
    The sea is also quite near my home and I love to go to the beach and walk and breath and feel the pulse!
    Thank you for your pattern. I have just the right yarn to try knit the bear.
    Take care! ;-)

  3. Hi La-Isa,

    I do love the sea and it's always a treat to visit as I live inland. Hope you enjoy the bear knitting and send a pic when you're done.

    :)
