Last week I had the week off work and spent some time away at a beach house. In short I wish I had organised the house for longer as we’d no sooner settled in, and we had to leave.
The view above was only a block away from where we stayed. When the tide goes it out it really goes out which makes for lots of space to walk around on. Monty had a great time rolling in the wet sand and sniffing too much at the seaweed. She’s rolled in seaweed before and as you can imagine it makes her stink but fortunately she didn’t do it this time.
For all JJ’s problems at school, he’s pretty good with me and we had a great time together. Mum and dad dropped in for a visit and took us out to dinner at the nearby tavern and I also caught up with an old school friend who lives nearby.
There’s a great path along the top of the beach along the coast and we nearly walked to nearby Moonta Bay and wore Monty out so that she didn’t mind so much having to spend time outside only at the house. And JJ ran around the house with Monty chasing him at other times.
We also spent a couple of days with some good friends afterwards so all in all it was a very relaxing week..
I caught up on sleep I’d missed out on in the last few weeks which was fantastic.
Usually the first thing I do when I’ve finished one holiday is to plan the next so I’m hoping to take all of the summer school holidays off – all six weeks of it. Fingers crossed that gets approved. Don’t know exactly what I’ll be doing but I’m sure I’ll think of something.
