|Another cheater - taken two years ago :)|
This is how I started my day ...
|The view from the Seat of Knowledge|
|The lagoon from a distance.|
Before I got my coffee and went to the Seat of Knowledge, I took a detour to my lagoon to check out the bird life during the earlier hours of the morning.

Unfortunately, the birdlife wasn't interested in showing off today, so I didn't get any good shots from there.
Adoring Husband had invited me out for lunch, so after I posted my photos onto flickr, we got dressed and drove to Goodies Restaurant at Toogoom, which is about fifteen minutes from here and right on the waterfront.
I purposely left my camera at home, because sometimes I force myself to take a short break from my obsession, however, the tide was high and the view from the restaurant was so inviting and I found myself feeling very disappointed that I couldn't take a few snaps.
Our meal was lovely and we ran into one of the girls who works at our local pub. She was there celebrating somebody's birthday and came to our table for a chat. Our table was in the outdoor area under the trees and there was a cool breeze blowing. Very very pleasant.
We were there for about ninety minutes before we made our way home.
Not long after we arrived, Mrs Bucket pulled into the driveway and came in for a visit. She stayed for about an hour and we heard all about her Christmas and Boxing Day. She was happy... but then she is always happy :o)
So, all in all, it's been a very nice day. Adoring Husband plays golf tomorrow, but we have made plans for a day together on Friday, to take photos and go to the movies. I'm looking forward to that!
