Chilling out at the Island
Had a fabulous weekend of R&R down at Phillip Island the past couple of days. The weather is finally warming up, and Saturday was a lovely day to be out and about, despite the wind. On Sunday, mindful of my trailwalker ambition, we embarked upon a longer walk than is perhaps customary for us down there. Instead of stopping in Cowes for coffee, as we had the previous day, we kept going past all the way to Silverleaves, where we enjoyed a lovely turkey bagel lunch, with coffee and apple & rhubarb crumble. Decadent. And then we walked home. It was an hour each way at a moderate pace -- purposeful without being spanking, a little faster than leisurely. It was the first time ever I didn't take my computer down to the beach with me, and it was lovely to walk, talk, chill out and watch a little netball and Anne of Green Gables on TV.
