It’s a New Year! Welcome to 2017.
What I did on my Holidays
I have spent my Christmas Break in the company of my extended family by the beach. It’s been a bit of fun. We had a Boxing Day Sail, but no Boxing Day Sales were attended. I’m sure I missed out on a bargain or two, but it has been enjoyable recharging the batteries of the soul at the end of a busy year.
Our first few days after Christmas were warm and sunny: around 35ºC( 95º F). This was great for getting out and about, and enjoying the weather. Early morning sunrise walks with awesome light – just the place to take some minifigures for a photo shoot. You may have seen some on the Rambling Brick Instagram Feed.
While the first few days after Christmas were great for outside activities, the third was a little different. The day started grey. There was no sunrise, and a light drizzle. No good light. Photo opportunities were seriously curtailed. The rain got a little heavier and I made an executive decision: I would build all the LEGO sets that I received for Christmas.
This is not as hard as it seems. I received only one LEGO® set for Christmas: the Creator Expert Volkswagen Beetle (10252).
