Now that the Quidditch Calendar is all out and about...

I did the Woollongong Warriors for December, deciding that it was about time the Southern Hemisphere had something summery to look at for the Xmas month; instead of the usual snowy scene. ;~)

And what could be more Aussie than surf and sunshine?

a couple of close-ups...

Hubby suggested I put the shadow of a shark in the wave, but I thought that would just confuse things. Heh. And, in case you were wondering, that's the Southern Cross on their shirts. :~D

This is wonderful! I love the colours and the waves and the whole happy summer at the beach vibe. Also, I spent the first twenty years of my life in Wollongong*, which is right by the sea. I can SO see this happening at my local beach when the Muggles aren't looking. :-)

* JKR got the spelling wrong: while it's pronounced 'wool-on-gong' it's most definitely spelt 'Wollongong'.

Yeah, it was a choice between the Thunderalla Thunderers or the Wollongong Warriors, and I chose the Warriors because of their proximity to the sea. ;~D

Don't be. JK Rowling was the one that misspelt it in the first place. Take a look at your copy of Quidditch Through The Ages. :D

Rachel, (who grew up in and lives in Wollongong and is pleased to see that your artwork really captures the essence and the spirit of the small coastal town).

The misspelling wasn't your fault - blame JKR! She got it wrong in Quidditch Through the Ages. *g*
