This long weekend has been kind to me. I originally planned to go to the Port Fairy Folk Festival, but I had a mini sort of personal crisis last week and in resolving it, I ended up deciding not to go and sold my ticket.
I still had my camping ticket though, so I drove down yesterday to say hi to Dad and Laura and Peter and Wendy and everyone else who are the loveliest people you will meet. We went out for dinner and I had an early night, enjoying being in a tent for the first time in ages.
I went for a swim in the ocean this morning. It was absolutely freezing, but we decided “invigorating” was a better descriptor.
I drove home via Macauthur and Hamilton, stopping in at Mt Eccles NP, where I went a whole bunch of times as a kid with my grandparents. That’s where the pictures are from (the only two pictures I took, because it’s me) - Lake Surprise and the cave that I started to go into but then got a little creeped out by myself. I also made friends with a nice wallaby, and popped in to see my grandma.
Oh, also! Friday night I went to Tom’s for a “xbox + pizza + beer” night, which I have not done in literally years. It was brilliant, and the perfect end to a long week at work.
What shall tomorrow hold?
The Goodbye Girl has been one of my favourite albums since 2005. It just Never gets old. 90s-00’s Aussie bands eva :)
The one band from my hometown I ever liked (and this album is definitely great).

Not that you can really see, but power went out so finishing the dishes by candle light.
Edit: also had a shower by candle light. Actually really calming, better than normal shower.
Also feels weird because my phone still has internet. Not even disconnected.
