Andy and I both have November birthdays. One of our favourite ways to celebrate is to go away for a weekend. This is our present to each other. On the weekend we went to the Sunshine Coast for a couple of days. The ferry leaves from Horseshoe Bay.
We arrived at the cottage at about 5:30pm, so it was already dark. We brought flashlights, and made our way down 84 stairs to this lovely little place by the sea. Most of the houses in the area are up the hill, and you walk down to the water. This one is special. When you sit in the little living room or look out of the bedroom windows upstairs, all you see is water.
The cottage has no internet and no cable TV. I was able to tune in local news on the tiny TV set to get civic election results Sunday morning, and we watched a couple of movies that I borrowed from the library at home: Seven Year Itch and Gods and Monsters. Both very good.
We brought home granola from Wheatberries Bakery, to mail to Fiona in New Jersey. We also brought home a great feeling of relaxation and memories of a very sweet time together.
question: do you have a place you like to go to?
mompoet - happy birthday to us!
