Getting up early to go walk in the gorge and see the amazing views before the day got hot.
Going out for a nice dinner to celebrate the last day of our holiday.
Talking about ‘don’t do nothing’.

Kangaroos! In our campsite! And a whole heap of them hopped past including a tiny baby one. So exciting.
Swimming in the pool. It is so hot here now we’re not in the wind.
A podcast on bliss. The presenters were just having such a good time.

The clouds. And the sunset.
The aquarium. The turtles were so cute and the sharks were cool. The rays were funny and the guides were so informative.
My period started. Just like that. No migraine. No days and days of waiting and waking up in the morning expecting it start halfway to the toilet.

Seeing the dolphins swim right up to us at Monkey Mia. The newborn was the best. So playful and energetic.
Spending the whole day relaxing in the sun and reading.
Seeing a turtle poke his head up a few metres from us in the sea.

Playing in the pool with the kids.
Going on John’s boat.
Speaking to mum and dad on the phone.

Seeing a wild kangaroo from the bus, I think. And an emu.
Arriving at my aunt and uncles house and setting them and the kids for the first time in three years.
Their house! Oh my god, it’s amazing.

Lying on the most beautiful beach with only one other family on it.
When he squirted sun tan lotion all down my shorts and on the floor.
Mr Bean on the ferry.
