I also watched a quilt top being quilted on her Gammill. It is a wonderful shop so if you are ever up that way it is well worth a visit. Here's a picture of Sarah's shop below on the right.

On Wednesday, Chris, Ken and I headed to Eagle Hawk Neck to join an Adventure boat tour down to Tasman Island. It was a bit windy with waves between 21/2 to 31/2 metres as we got closer to our destination. It was well worth the trip though as we saw 300 metre high cliffs with caves below eroded by the sea. We were lucky enough to see dolphins, seabirds and albatross. Also saw a couple of seal colonies on the rocks. It was amazing to hear the history of Tasman Island and how they managed to get people, supplies, livestock onto the island so that the light house could be manned. The boat ride back through the waves was exciting.
Lastly we attended the wedding of our niece Kate and her now hubby Joe. The day was not the best and was the coldest of our stay. I'm sure the bridal party were freezing in their summery outfits. The wedding was held at Peppermint Bay and we caught the ferry down along with most of the other guests.
