Happy Thanksgiving! We are so missing the celebration of harvest this year! When we try to explain the concept of “harvest” to Aussies they just look confused. “Frost?” they say. “Canning fruit for the winter?” they gasp. “Why would you do that?” So yeah, it is not quite the same. We did have two very delicious dinners with fellow Canadians though, which we enjoyed in the 32 degree heat.
I don’t think I need to write an essay this time, I will just post a few photos from our latest adventures. Bees, bikes, head shaving, hiking in the Royal National Park, etc. Oh, I will mention diving though. For my birthday we finally made it under the ocean! This turned out to be a bit of a mixed bag unfortunately. Anxiety in the open water, a killer migraine and a sore ankle left me not feeling great after the first day of our PADI dive course. So, much to my own disappointment, I decided not to finish the course. Boo unfinished goals! Boo body limitations!But yay for trying something new I suppose. We knew this was going to be a stretch, and it was. Curtis is the best though, and we did see some cool wildlife…5 metres under the surface. It was a great way to bring on 29. Mostly.
Also, if you’re curious, here’s a few of my favourite songs from my Thanksgiving Canadiana mix. Canadian music, you warm my heart!
