We have been having a pretty lazy time, partly because Sunday was a little inclement, and on Monday Len wanted to watch his American football so he wouldn’t get too far behind. That was OK with me. After all, Monday is wash-day isn’t it? (And, it did leave me time for some reading as well).
So, what have we done?
We’ve played several rounds of mini-golf here at the resort, and have not improved our scores. Our excuse is that the overnight rainfalls have made the surface wet, upsetting our finely tuned knowledge of the course!
We’ve eaten at old favourites – Little Fish (French-style) Cafe at Innes Lake Vineyards and Rivermark Cafe on the Hastings – and a new one, Sea Salt Cafe on the marina. This latter was with my old school-mate, Jennie, and her husband, Chris. We hadn’t seen each other since leaving school – but reconnected via Facebook a few years ago. It was truly lovely. We reminisced about what great school days we had. Neither of us remember any nastiness in our cohort (or, at least, amongst the forty or so that formed our main circle).
We’ve walked out to the Settlement Point Ferry, along the Hastings River. Just 3 kms or so of very flat walking but one of the things we do when we are here.
We’ve had a laugh or two – such as at the sign on what I believe is a retirement village. The sign started with “For the not so retiring” and ended with “Do you have a home-care package?” I’m still wondering what the combination of those two in one sign was trying to say?
And, I had a nice little chat with the groundsman here who is building a vegetable and herb garden for use by guests! That’s impressive for a time-share resort I think. I photographed the little herb garden, but in the veggie garden he has peas, cucumber, capsicum, carrots, onions, lettuce and a couple of other veggies under way. He also has strawberries growing, and plans next to plant passionfruit, watermelon and bananas.
And some pics (of course)
