Where I stayed
What I did
Wonderful coastline, fringing coral reefs, lovely people and kangaroos
We turn up at 12 for an immensely kind invitation to join everyone for a BBQ lunch
We relax immediately. Charlie & Clare and their friends Jane and Martin are laid back, interesting and lovely people. All the kids immediately hit it off. I immediately wonder how I can get a job here and then remember I am no longer 20 and have other responsibilities. How annoying.
One delicious BBQ later and T and I wander down to the sea (a grand total distance of a whole 20 meters) and spend a lovely afternoon drifting down the beach on the current doing a bit of snorkelling.
Not much else to report other than a wonderful afternoon reading and snoozing. Kids all eat together at 6 while the adults have canapés and watch the sun go down. Some tired behaviour from Annabel puts paid to the kids watching a movie on the iPad at bedtime, instead they read and John insists on writing some more in his journal. I discover, the next morning, that he's written a whole tract - entirely on his own. It wasn't entirely decipherable but nevertheless its a very sweet indication that the kids are really appreciating what they are seeing here.
Dinner was perfect. Lovely company, delicious wine, great food. We retire for the night - blissfully happy.
