Tiddles is unfortunately not any better this morning and in fact probably a bit worse. We are concerned about her, and decide that enough is enough. After several calls to the insurance company we take her to urgent care to be checked out. Three hours later they have given her a thorough check and concluded that she just has a really nasty virus that she is struggling to kick. They give her an anti- sickness tablet, and some oral rehydration solution. We leave much more settled, and happy that we have been doing all the right things for her. She has been amazing through her ordeal, still smiling and happy 90% of the time. The grown ups have however reached the end of their tethers.
So after a very dull morning we set off for the lake side beach just at the bottom of our campsite for the afternoon
Showers on the way back to the van. Dylan is hilarious as he MUST shower all by himself and now he wants to hold it so he can shower all the bottles too. This could have disastrous future consequences.
Dylan's new word for the day is "mysterious".
Yummy dinner together in the van and then a swift (and dry) bedtime for Taya. Sleep tight little lady. Dylan and Rich do yet more laundry, spy a rabbit with really big ears, and buy some drinks from the shop. Dylan is full of beans tonight from their adventure. He really seems to enjoy the simple things.
Really nice evening temperature, so we sat out looking at the stars over the lake with a glass of Pinot (in a beaker!). Emma spies a shooting star and takes her chance to make lots of wishes.
