Feel the Serenity

In days full of sunshine and fresh air, Himself and I love to be out in it and absorbing the vitamin D. We miss it in the northern hemisphere winters.

We may have absorbed a little too much, and possibly gotten more burnt than intended, but at the time, it was totally worth it!

Being lucky enough to have the water and boats at our disposal led to us doing things that I hadn’t really known growing up.

And though I didn’t go water skiing myself, I had a lot of fun going out with the skiers in the morning and them allowing me to photograph and video their escapades!

They were even willing to take our new GoPro into the water with them for some action shots! (I’m still working on putting the films together.)

There were people to meet and places to explore. This private bach in the middle of a National Park was owned by a family friend, an amazing man of great character.

It was in the middle of some of the most beautiful landscape in the world.

Back at the house I enjoyed watching the tractors pulling in the boats out of the water and taking them to the houses up in the hills for the evenings.

As our days in this section of paradise were coming to a close, I could feel the tenseness of the last year unlocking and dropping from my shoulders.

Driving back through the centre of the island gave me a different view and new sights to see. Some of the rivers and rock beds reminded me of my childhood camping trips and wearing sneakers in creeks to save my toes from the yabbies!

But before we knew it we were a country away, and we were crossing a bridge that looked like a coat hanger!

  1. The sun and sand and waves look wonderful and relaxing! I’m glad you had the chance to disconnect and relax a bit, in the midst of all the festivities 🙂
