We've been talking with Ellery about the seasons. He knows winter is coming - and rejoices in exclaiming it whenever there's mention of rugging up. We've been donning our woollens. Leaving the beach early as the dark and cold descend. And warming up with cups of tea. (He likes chamomile.)
It gets surprisingly cool here. Exposed to full coastal blows as we are. In a house built for Queensland summers.
We saw the first whales of the season this week, making their winter journey north to warmer waters. I can hardly believe it's our third whale season here! Our first season, he was newborn. On the tail end of the last season, he saw them for the first time. And now, as a soon-to-be two-year-old, perhaps he'll start laying down memories of these amazing creatures.
Thanks to everyone who commented on last week's portrait - I'm a bit blown away by the attention! (We are relieved that the night terrors have been short-lived, thus far.)
