Day 860 a lazy morning by the sea, lovely drive home then lounging in the garden, hard life eh?? ☀️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿☀️

Wow I slept like a log last night, almost 12 hours! Out for the count. I think I racked up about 15k steps yesterday so musta needed it!

She who never breaks the rules is actually willingly rule breaking today…. Check me. 😂 I say that and you’ll realise it’s like hardly the biggest rule in the world to be broken…. We’re meant to be off the campsite by 10am. It’s 12.22pm and I’m still sitting here!!!

Now… to be fair, I did ask the man…. Love that my idea of breaking the rules is to ask if it’s ok to break it first 🤣

There’s a lovely breeze here taking off the worst of the heat and I’m right out on the edge of the grass banking looking over her sea as I crochet … I’m like some 80 year old in her element!

I had this strange desire to sit and watch the tide come right in. It’s not a very pretty beach here when the tide is out. Very rocky, stony and it look more like debris than anything else… however when the tide is in, it’s beautiful. I wanted to see how high up it actually came and watch it start going back out again. Where do these ideas come come?!?

This is what it looked like first thing over morning coffee.

Craig said it was overcast at home and he’s working this morning so where’s the rush?!?

This solitude is addictive. The more I grow in confidence the more I just want silence. I realise that’s not particularly healthy and need to strike a happy balance. I have spoken to Craig loads while I’ve been away so it’s not as if we’ve not been in touch.

I just got everything that I wanted from this trip.

I’m right next to the sea and there isn’t another soul anywhere near me. This is the quietest campsite ever. Lots of folk in their static vans seem to be indoors.

There’s no one else on the grass at all. It’s just perfect. The tide is up high and looking pretty!

There are some high level clouds today. It’s very hot but the cool breeze of the sea is just perfect.

I caught both the P&O and Stena Line ferries racing each other into Cairnryan. I had no idea how busy that port was having never been to Northern Ireland. Stena Line runs 5 ferries a day to Belfast, it takes 2 hours and 15 minutes and P&O run 6 to Larne which only takes 2 hours.

It’s on 10X zoom so not the best!

Every time I look round there’s another ferry driving or leaving, or so it seems!

I packed Abbie up and swept everything out, aired the bedding, it’s amazing what a difference sunshine can make. I literally just have to take the bags out when I get home.

The sun just went behind a cloud for the first time in days!

This is my wee spot for the morning and I sat here until 12.30 when the need for a wee gets me moving!

And this…… just hit the mark when my friend Carol-Ann shared this today!

I am so proud of how far I have come and how much I am able to enjoy life now. For anyone feeling really low temper that the good days will come back. You just have to take one day at a time, be present in the current moment and appreciate all that you have as simple as it may seem.

I may have gone a bit crazy with this lamppost….. 😂

Normal day time, once with sunset, after sunset and with sunrise in it! Obsessed much?! Maybe need to get back to gates??! 😂

So I left my little peace of heaven at 1pm and had a lovely drive with my newly found aircon working all the way home. Also love the fact I’ve had her since June 2020 and only now realise the aircon actually does work….. 🙄😆

Took 2 hours as there was a 5 car pile up on the A78. Looked really bad considering it was just before a roundabout when folk should have been slowing down.

Craig had bought some Forum Ice-cream from Kilmarnock yesterday! The Avery clan will all be jealous!! The Forum Café makes the best vanilla ice-cream, it tastes like condensed milk. I had a huge bowl of that and now I’m sitting outside in scorching hot 25°C heat without my lovely sea breeze…. It’s intense as we are sooooo not used to this.

It’s lovely to be home, (the dogs went crazy) and I’ve had the best weekend and it’s only Saturday afternoon!

The ducks don’t always line up like they did this weekend but everything went in my favour…. Even these swans…

Sometimes I think I’m funny…… 😂😂

Stay safe everyone ☀️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿☀️
