We spent the morning walking around Bondi and visiting the farmers markets. I love getting all our fresh produce from the markets each week. I love that the fruit and vegetables haven’t been long from farm to table. I am also falling more in love with the eastern beaches. We sat on the rocks looking out for the whales. I wanted to climb down some ledges to get the best view but Greg wasn’t having any part of it. He stopped me and yelled “no Jodie, no you are not climbing down those rocks”. I love that he tries to keep me safe. I am waiting till the day I can take him on a family canyoning trip. Where we rock climb without any ropes, we abseil down holding a rope without a harness and we jump and slide into big rock pools. My family trips away were either camping in the snow and cross country skiing or canyoning and bushwalking. It used to frustrate me that we couldn’t have what I thought was a normal holiday was growing up. It wasn’t until I was twenty that I tried downhill skiing and snowboarding for the first time. I got a lift pass and that was a luxury, as I was used to having to traverse the slopes going up as well as down. I want to go on some more camping trips. I don’t know how Greg will feel about this but I am thinking we should give it a go. Maybe a few nights in a tent and a few nights in some other form of accommodation. A year ago we hired a campervan and went travelling from Brisbane to Sydney stopping at many beaches in between. This time around I am actually thinking a tent would be cool for the same trip. As long as we have a comfortable mattress and pillow, I am happy.
I love you Hamish. I always think of you when I look out into the ocean.
