So I really did think I had a *great* idea for Matty and I to go on a last holiday before the baby comes! Too bad the weather didnt co-operate!! lol!
We drove up to Forster late sunday night so we start our holiday in our destination!! We stayed in a cabin in a cute Pirate Themed caravan park! Cheap too ($75 a night!). We woke up to rain, rain and more rain! So we went to look around the shops - I got a little something for you John and Sian for your housewarming!! In the afternoon, we went to the movies and saw "death at a funeral". For dinner, i went to coles and bought stuff for a BBQ whilst Matt took the surf ski out for an hour paddle. We cooked our BBQ in the rain - hahahah! That night we played Scategories and watched So You Think You Can Dance on teli (LOVE that show!!!). We went to sleep with the gorgeous sound of rain bucketing down on the tin roof - which I actually love, seeing as we live in an apartment and we rarely get to hear the rain unless its a huge storm.
The next day - after looking at the weather forecast on the teli and in the paper.. (rain all week) we decided to hit the road to a new destination, as Forster is GREAT.. but not when you cant go swimming at the beach or kayaking (unless your crazy like matty who went on a 2 hour paddle that morning when i was still asleep!!)
On thursday we went to Manly to go for a swim... but the beach was closed due to pollution, so we looked around the shops and I found a cafe that makes Gluten Free wraps!! I was SO excited!!! Then we planned on going for a swim at another beach but it started pouring again!! SO we went home... there was a blackout for a few hours!! Luckily the power came back on before dark!! phew!
Matty had to go back to work on friday so that was the end of our holidays!! We actually had a GREAT time together!! And I was happy to be able to go for a swim at the beach!! It was great just to spend time hanging out!!
Sorry, we didnt take any photos besides at the Reptile Park though!
On Friday night we went out for Kato's birthday!! It was a good fun night!!
Saturday, I worked at Pro Kayaks for a few hours, doing stocktake! It took forever!! But its done now!! And then we went to see Fools Gold at the movies...
On sunday morning I met up with Bec at 8:30am to go for a walk along the beach!! I was nice to get the blood pumping so early in the morning!! We saw a washed up sharks head on the beach, it was only small. I asked some fishermen what it was and they said its a "bronze whaler" or something. Then the fisherman said, "dont worry, he cant get you now". Too bad I was worried about his mum and dad still probably swimming in the waters nearby! hahaha! It was sad to see it washed up on the beach tho. Then I had to be a ProKayaks at 9:30am for an hour then I came home and cleaned... I believe they call it "nesting" HAHAHHAHA!!
I was surprised to see this photo in a Pregnancy Magazine I bought.. its what my baby is like now at 24 weeks! Already a little human!!
