It’s (Not) Beginning to Feel a Lot Like Christmas
24 December 2009
It’s Christmas Eve here on the Island though there is no way of telling it without having a calendar on the wall. It is a beautifully sunny day and we had a long and leisurely breakfast on the back deck, trying to avoid the ever present flies.
We decided to get all the checking and weighing done this morning again to give us time for frivolity this afternoon. We’re planning a dip in the rock pools at Whalers Bay, followed by some sparkling wine and lounging on the rocks.
