Yesterday we drove back to the coast, and checked into our "cabin in a campground", right on the beach. The ocean is about 50 metres from our door. We got lots of groceries, so we're not going anywhere in the car.
I've had a great day so far. Got up about 6:30. Had a coffee and cereal. Went for a beautiful 10 km run along the coastal running/cycling path that goes right past our door (sub 58 minutes). Came back, and went to the pool to swim with the kids. Had lunch, then had a nice nap. Got up, went to the beach with Ursula and the kids. Just got back to the cabin. It's 3 pm. Enjoying my first beer of the day, and writing this blog post. So far; so good.
We're here for 5 nights, so we're not in a hurry to do anything. There are lots of fun touristy things to do here, and the Margaret River wineries are only a few kilometres away. I got a little sunburnt on Tuesday, so I have to be careful on the beach. That's my biggest challenge this week.
Hope all is well with all of you. Yesterday I learned that one of my host moms from Holland passed away last week after a 6 month fight with cancer. Sad she's gone, but glad we got to see her and her husband at their farm in September. Life lesson: enjoy the time you have with loved ones.
