Slightly at risk of assuming anyone is actually reading, I nevertheless have to quickly apologies for not posting on Friday. We went away so I just did not get time to post.
And away was fantastic. Slightly stressful getting there, but once on site, we saw both Brad and Angelina and David and Samantha on the first evening, sufficient to agree to rendevous for the following morning's breakfast meet up.
Then it was down the beach for the whole day, ending with a BBQ until the lights went out. We did not see a repeat of last year's wave phosphorescence, but that was the only imperfection on an otherwise fantastic day. We took our wetsuits (once the preserve of the beach bum surf dude, now also used by the middle classes to extend their bathing calendar) and had fantastic fun in the water and on the beach. We took the mackerel rods, but even they were taking it easy and we did not have even a snifter.
The following day, we repeated the process, and left around 5pm for a pretty easy drive home.
The 'van is now on the drive ready for preparation for Riverside Lakes and then the big European tour. It will be cleaned, all surplus items (dressing gowns, blankets, slipper socks etc) will be removed, and it will also get a service, when, hopefully, the fridge can be fixed to work on electric again, having failed us on this trip. We were able to run it on gas, so all was well, but on a hookup site electric is "free" so we would prefer that it did work on electricity.
Now I have a normal and rather full week of work, it feeling like a whole holiday ago that I was last at work. And that just about defines the perfect weekend.
Have a good week, speak later.
