After a lovely dinner and then driving out to the middle of nowhere for a bush dance (much like a square dance) it was time for a bit of sleep and then the long ride home. I do work in between the weekends but the play is much more fun to write about. After my first taste of surfing I spent the next weekend with friends who live on the coast.
This weekend has been my first weekend at home (it does feel that way now) since I got here. Well not totally at home I did need to go down to the coast to pick up the surfboard that I had bought. Well I was down there I figured I may as well go for a walk by the sea. I went down to Kiama where an underwater hole in the rocks causes the water to go up like from a blowhole. It was pretty neat. Today started by joining a trail running group for a 12km jog through the woods. At the midpoint of the run there was a 30 foot boat in the middle of the woods. The story has it that a fellow afraid of loosing it in a divorce settlement hid it there and said that it had been stolen. I guess he was never able to go back for it. Now I must go and get things organised for next weekend. There is a Highland games here and apparently the village of 2000 becomes 20 000. Some of my friends are staying for the weekend so I am expecting a bit of fun to occur. I hope that everyone is doing well and enjoying life :0)
