|Ahhh- paradise. The nights are cooler here and the bugs are few and far between Actually, it didn't feel like paradise when Paddy woke up before 5am, but we have forgotten all about that now.
We walked down to Cable beach at about 7am and gazed at 22km of white sand and turquoise waters. I was a little concerned about the jelly fish that were washed up on the sand, but have since been reassured that those big brown ugly ones don't sting- thank god for that. It was so awesome to be at a beach again.
The rest of this morning was spent just hanging around the pool and reminding ourselves that we would be staying here for a week, no need to do anything in a hurry. Mick was on a bit of a short fuse after such a long day in the car yesterday, but a couple of Nanna naps, and he was as good as new.
We popped into Town for a little look around before we excitedly took our 4WD onto the beach for the very first time. It was late afternoon, the beach was a mix of 4WD's and camels. The weather was perfect,the car fridge had cold beers in it, and the water temperature was 26 degrees. We couldn't have asked for more. We got out some nibbles, kicked a ball around, and India and I went for a swim. We watched another beautiful sunset and vowed to come back and do it again every afternoon that we are here.
Back at base camp, it was BBQ and salad for dinner. Paddy was so exhausted, that he took himself into our bed and went to sleep before 7pm. This was the first time this entire holiday that we didn't have to fight to get him to sleep- woohoo! India and Mick fell asleep in their chairs around the dinner table, and I'm on my way to sleep now. Looking forward to many more days like this.
Doctors appointment tomorrow morning to check on the baby- just the monthly check up I would be having a home.
