I have to tell you – it’s great having amazing friends whom you can just relax with. No pressure, no pretense, no forced conversations. There was no shortage of hot days – it is summer, after all! – or a little exercise. Exercise. You know, that thing that’s good for the soul, and . . . well, you know. 😉 And the food? Yes, that was really good too!
I had no problem following Rosie’s advice and taking a nap myself shortly after arriving at Lisa’s. It was just the thing to store up some energy for the evening walk Lisa, Willie, Rosie and I enjoyed in the woods.
I’m not following a regular exercise regime at the moment so after that walk I slept really well and was ready to go the next morning when we went for a stroll around the neighbourhood!
One of these days, miss Rose, one of these days! Rosie-girl is a very enthusiastic walker with little patience for the dawdling of amateur photographers. Lisa did a good job of getting her to stay put – more or less – for a couple of minutes. 🙂
Lisa kept surprising me with short outings. One was in the early morning when we drove to Herolds Bay.
It’s an interesting little town with curious notices posted near the beach. I’m not sure if these are intended or not – presumably not.
Heading back home we stopped a few times along the road to take pictures. I was in zoom-mode (a bit obsessed, I think) so you should really check out the much more interesting photos that Lisa took. There was a black farm dog in the field below and I really thought I got a good shot of it – but I didn’t. Next time I want to take my own prop (a.k.a. Rosie!) with and try again!
This was not the last of Lisa’s surprises. She took me on a short “mystery trip” up the side of the mountain onto Montagu Pass.
The next day we needed a break, and I had to rest up for my return trip home.
It was another great visit! We had more laughs, more sharing of knowledge, lovely naps, not so healthy yoghurt shakes . . .
Thank you Lisa, Rosie and Willie for having me come visit and unwind again!
