Skipped the soccer games, ran away from our usual weekend stuff.
We headed north and east.
To the coast.
We breathed ocean air and it ruffled our hair (and our stale thoughts).
We watched some proud new GPs receive their fellowships (and the children laughed at us in our "Hogwarts" academic gowns).
We ate delicious local seafood and went hunting for fairy penguins (in the dark).
We looked for baby lambs, blossom trees and new vineyards (and then put the DVD on when the road got too long).
It wasn't long but it was long enough (to jolt us out of routine and bring us together again).
I'm very grateful for our little break (and to live in this beautiful state).
Linking up (most) weeks with Bron and the grateful gang here
