    • Day 136


      February 12, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 24 °C

      Whaaaaat! No way we are half way through already, but yup apparently so.
      Got up at 5.45 to meet Andrew outside the front of the house. We were the advanced surfing party. Zoomed down to Margaret river with Steven. Spied the beach then waited for Andrew's friend to arrive whilst having a courage pie and coke.
      Went round to south point to start the surf. It was pretty big with some big rips. I decided to watch the others for a bit to see how they got on. After 45 mins of watching with Steve, with only 1 wave caught between them, I decided to go round the corner to the smaller, more crowded but more consistent looking wave.
      Had a fun little surf.
      We then went along to another beach and met up with Hannah and Heather who had driven down a bit later.
      Massive dumpy surf here. I got the boogy board and got a few. Then Andrew and I went in with the hand planes. Couldn't really commit to the big ones as it would have been face crunch into the sand.
      Thunder was rolling in, so we retired to the accommodation via Coles for food. Amazing place with a pool and huge open space. Andrew, Hannah and I cooked up a lovely salad.
      G and Td up we were all knackered. Final challenge of getting the boys to bed. Then bedtime for the rest of us.

      Boys and girls days

      February 15, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Ladies went off to the spa at about 10.30, the boys piled in the truck and headed to a natural spa. A massive pool which gets a flushing of gushing bubbling water from waves cascading over the rocks. All the boys had a dip. Then we chased crabs with Archie and Chester for 30 mins.
      Off for lunch to the Caves road Black Brewing Co for a fantastic lamb ribs and pork belly. Tssssk. Ohh sir.
      Had a small play in the playground where Andrew and I spun round on a spinny thing and felt very very sick.
      Stopped into Gralyn Estate to taste some chocolate and wines (mainly fortified).
      Then we went to Yallingup Maze. I teamed up with Archie, Andrew had Chester. Archie and I cruised to an initial lead of 2 towers. Then none of us could find our way to the third tower. Teaming up we managed to navigate through to the end, whilst losing Chester only the once.
      We all fancied ice cream so went to the excellent Simmos Ice Creamery. Soooo yummy, and a small play in the playground.
      Told the ladies to get some shopping on the way back. Whilst the lads played games at home.
      Another great evening of food and wine.

      Friends, Food and Games

      December 15, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

      We stopped in at a friend's house (John, Anna and their kids Heathe and Finn) for a visit and coffee in Secret Harbour.

      Then we went to spend the night at Rob and Jules Meier's house. They are expecting a little baby soon! Rob made amazing homemade pizza and we played a game called Unstable Unicorns. Super fun night.Read more
