the holiday thus far…
One and half hours flying, arrived to a cool breeze but sunshine. Trying to take photos inbetween my phone dying.
The apartment is gorgeous. I will post the photos on my return as I can’t download them onto my IPad. Ascending 17 steps, the wooden studio perches amongst the gum trees. We settled in, then went for a walk down to the local beach of golden sands and blue surf. It’s a little chilly, but it’s sunnier than Melbourne.
Went into the local town, bought some supplies…yes wine. 🙂
Then back to change and go out for tea, cheese and garlic bread and a seafood platter, consisting of mud crab, oysters, fish, calamari, crab, scallops, salad and chips..it was yum.
Back to the studio and a glass of complimentary port that was left for us, as well as a bottle of champagne and chocolates….romantic.
We had two visitors though, possums, Mr. S said don’t feed them they’ll keep returning. I ignored him and got out some bread, which they took from my hand.
Back inside I watched a bit of a TV and promptly after that we both fell asleep. I will keep away any gruesome details if we don’t fall asleep. 🙂
Awoke this morning with the calls of the local bird life, hot shower above the spa which I will be trying tonight, dressed and out to the golfing range.
As I write this, I sit in the buggy, driving around the course whilst Mr. S is not having his best game, the bunkers are looking very attractive to him this morning it seems…
Home front, mumma penguin is being moved into a Rehab facility today, as she hated the Hospital. I don’t think she knows what has happened to her, breaking her arm, as she told Pop that we have abandoned her and according to my brother, Pop didn’t sleep well last night because of it.
I cannot change the situation, though I am thinking of her and Pop constantly, but this is time for me and Mr. S (though I do feel guilty writing that).
So that is the holiday so far, I’m better off writing as I go, otherwise the post when I return home will be too long to read.
Trust, that I am not spending all my time on my IPad, but enjoying and trying to relax as much as possible on this little get a way.
