Cool weekend trip

So we jumped in the car last Saturday, and headed off for 2 nights down here.
A bit of R&R (no sewing machine, but definitely cross stitch taken. But no time to do it!)


The first afternoon meant a huge walk around the lake and ocean.


and LOTS of swims in the pool.


jumping pillow (I tried it. It doesn't like back injuries like mine, unfortunately!)



but I ignored the back to go on this beauty! Flicker was pretty gentle on me.

I cut a striking figure as usual (not!) Some people look good on a horse; I'm not one of them! But the view....


ooh, yeah!


paddle boats the next day meant my legs didn't work for a while. I channeled The Biggest Loser doing this one....


and the car trip home was hard. 


but a brilliant time! Unfortunately it was at the beginnings of the holidays, so it has been forgotten for a while....

Looks like you had a great weekend. Might have to follow your lead and take my kidlets for a day trip - only an hour from us.

Sometimes a few days break can seem like a major holiday. Looks like you packed in a lot of fun!
