Make Hay While the Sun Shines

The roster gods have finally smiled upon me and I have had some weekends off this summer.  I know better than to waste them.

This weekend we went to Roseville, Blairgowrie with our friends.  Jason and I camped on the soccer pitch to stay away from crying babies and barking dogs.  Jenn asked me how I slept, I gleefully stretched and told her, "I had the sleep of a childless woman."

We swam in the beautiful rock hole and walked in the paths through the dunes.

We walked along the wild backbeach at Rye.

We ate pie at Johnny Ripe, on a hill overlooking their orchard.

Jason found nautical ephemera at the antique shop.

We swam at Rosebud, and lay on the beach reading.

We napped in our bedroom in the late afternoon sun.

And then we went to the Shadow Electric cinema at the convent and watched 'Hearts of Darkness'.  Hundreds of bats flew over the courtyard and then the movie started.

Yes this is how all the weekends should be.
