Today started out with a 1:30am phone call. Sharlee was the caller and she was all distraught because she heard a gushing noise and got out of bed to be met by wet carpet; quite a surprise. The hot water outlet to her vanity in the bedroom had come adrift and water was all through the place causing soppy carpets to worry about. Oh well, things are on the mend now but caused a day off work waiting for plumbers and carpet cleaners to turn up and fix the situation or start the ‘healing’ process.
That meant today has been a ‘tired’ sort of day. Up late and no early morning run. Just an ‘after breakfast’ stroll along the beautiful beach just over the sand hills. At one stage, there were 20 4WDs driving along the ‘highway’ from Beachport to Robe.
This evening, while having the second meal of the day (weight/shape adjustments are on the way), we saw an echidna walking down the track just across from our site. Friendly little fellow indeed and he didn’t even seem shy to have his photo taken.
The wind yesterday during the very hot 40 degrees was quite strong and kept us off the beach and near the site in case we needed to attend to anything going wrong. Otherwise, nothing much has changed; just a great quiet spot to enjoy a relaxing holiday.
