The Motel

After two nights in a motel, I was ready to move temporarily into my next accommodation, with some good friends, Jon and Liz and their 4 kids. They were kind enough to offer me a place to stay for as long as I needed it, which has been great. The first afternoon I spent with them, Jon took me for a drive to look at a room which I could rent, which as it turns out I have. It’s not the cheapest room, but in a nice house and nice area and pretty close to everything I need, I move in tomorrow.

 

The first day I was there it was decided that we go for a BBQ at the beach that afternoon. I had been to that particular beach before a few years ago, but not this area. We didn’t get there early enough and ended up eating in the dark, but it still tasted great. After this we went for a short walk on the beach.

 

The next day I ventured out with a friend of mine and her son and we went to the same beach for lunch. I was able to see more of the beach on this occasion as we went for a quite a long walk. After this we went to the harbour, which ahs changed considerably from when I last went there years ago. One thing I remember from my childhood was a particular children’s playground which I used to play on. Amazingly it still stands, so I couldn’t resist having some pictures taken with these larger than life characters in the park, well some of them anyway.

Blacks Beach

 

It has rained everyday since I got here so far and apparently this is what it usually is like??? It is still warm though, but this rain reminds me of Holland, except it’s much heavier rain here.

 

On Sunday I was taken out to lunch with some company also friends at a sports club called Magpies, which had recently been renovated. The meal was great and so was the company, a good place which isn’t too far from where I will be living. It even has a children’s play area.

 

My first day at work was not that exciting, I was very nervous and didn’t quite know what to expect. I had been told that I would be working with another manager, but in the end it was me and two other young workers which worked for most of the day. This felt strange as I was meant to be in charge, but I didn’t know what I was doing???
