Enjoying the amazing weather. No rain, wind or tears. Sunny blue blue blue skies, green water and soft grey pebbly beach. The water is calm as are tempers.
Reading Sherri S Tepper books — first Grass and now The Margarets. Complex and interesting characters — science fiction but concentrating on the people and the environment rather than on technology — I like that.
Listening to the crazy noisy bird life — Cockatoos and Galas.
Observing the people — fellow campers are an interesting mixed bunch of people. Grey nomads, young couples in love with tiny tents and a hippy van, lots of people traveling with dogs, one couple have 3 dogs and a parrot in a cage — the woman as the most amazing long silvery grey hair. Another couple travelling with their 21 year old son and hoping he will find some happiness (and maybe a job and a girlfriend) along the way — they sold their house and plan to spend 10 years on the road. A family of 5 in a swiss army style caravan (lots of gadgets and nifty nooks that fold out and fold back again). Another homeschooling family with 3 kids and a giant vintage caravan.
Giving in to my craving for black jelly beans.
Finishing up this post while the family wait for me to go for an afternoon swim.
Enjoying spending quality and quantity time with the kids.
