We're slowly easing back into the real world after an unforgettable week of camping in paradise. I really feel like my batteries are re-charged after spending the time with good friends and my lovely family, and doing very little. Just the important things, like reading, doodling, a tiny bit of knitting, flying kites and building sand castles.

Our first job when we got home was to harvest all the bounty from our garden: strawberries, red cabbage, apple cucumbers, green beans, beetroot, potatoes, carrots, lettuce and one lemon. Every vegetable on our plate for tonight's dinner came from our garden. That is indeed a good start to the year, don't you think?

A belated happy new year to you and your people from me and mine!

Thanks Julie; the trip was great and we were truly lucky to be a able to stay in such a beautiful place (it's a privately-owned little beach).
The veges are delicious, Craig is such a good gardener!
