Bank Holiday Excitement

Part of an email I received today from the Prof


"We are at Hamilton Island marina for the night. Having the most wonderful time, and seeing some amazing things.... Whales, turtles, coral, wonderful fish..... I have managed to snorkel"

It's bank holiday here in the UK
and I went to Sainsbury's and bought a £ 1.50 pair of flip flops.....

Hey ho

  2. Bank Holiday Monday here in Cornwall - and I've been sitting in the garden reading, along with a couple of hours of gardening. My beach days will return once the crowds have returned to their homes up-country. Good for the Prof, having a go at all those things.

  5. How many days since your last Scotch egg John? I think you deserve another for hanging in there.

    Still, it won't be long until you're winging your way to Oz!

    2. There's a med for that - GO!

    3. If you don't want to take meds, ginger tea or ginger sweeties have been a life saver for me; give them a go. Saw grey whales migrating along the California coast when out boating with friends several years ago - just the memory sends chills up my spine and brings tears to my eyes.

  24. Do go for the whale watching but get some meds. When the boat stops the waves will get to you, not sure you want to be green.
    Snorkeling is great fun, hope you try it.
    So soon you will be having fun together ! Vacations are lovely.

  26. My friend in NZ rang the other night to let me know they were 'just popping over to OZ for a jazz festival'! It's a wonder you couldn't hear the giant raspberry I blew down the phone to her down there in Wales!! G'night Mate. x
