    A day of rest in the sunshine

    August 23, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    No driving today - we spent the whole day chilling and enjoying the lovely 21 degree sunshine. We started the morning with a visit from local farmer, Steve with two of his Australian Drought and Clydesdale horses that he still uses to work his farm. We promised to visit his farm tomorrow to watch a demonstration of his horses in action.

    I made pancakes with fresh fruit for brunch, which we ate outside, savouring the view and the warmth of the sun. We sat outside for a while and I fell asleep laying back in my chair, lulled by the sun on my face and listening to the happy galahs chirping in the trees.

    Gadi took his kayak out on the lake, the first time using it since before winter. When he returned he took Cadbury out for a short ride.

    We ended the afternoon with happy hour with our neighbours again, chatting away before we spent about an hour searching for Gadi’s keys (this happens quite frequently) as the sun faded away and eventually we cooked dinner on the Weber and moved inside for the night.

    We are going to stay here another night tomorrow, which will give us time to see the horses in action and relax again in the afternoon by the lake. We are in no rush and are happy to keep our plans flexible and make it up as we go.

    3 musings for today:

    1. Eating is definitely more pleasurable when you are sitting outside with a stunning view in the warm sunshine

    2. Napping in the sun is the best

    3. I need help to find a system for Gadi’s keys (and his glasses and wallet) so we don’t regularly go through a panic to find them!
