If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.
– Eckhart Tolle
+ started by watching the secret life of walter mitty. one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time
+ early morning coffee and ringawera hot cross buns in bed
+ then a surprise birthday breakfast for a friend at charlie farleys
+ before collecting C&D from the ferry… who’ve come to stay in our caravan for the long weekend
+ lunch in the sun at mudbrick bistro
+ easy dinner and conversation
+ Saturday morning picnic on our bed, discussing yurts and recipes for crickets
+ a walk to the Ostend market
+ then a visit to a pop-up shop
+ picking up N&M from the ferry
+ platter-style lunch and an afternoon of talking and laughing on the deck
+ an hilarious, and highly explosive, experiment involving a soda stream and a bottle of chardonnay
+ dancing to sola rosa
+ faux flamenco with D and a challenge to learn it properly before the next time we meet
+ sunday morning lie in
+ reubens for breakfast with home-made sauerkraut
+ staring out at the rain
+ companionable silences
+ the hum of the dryer, the fridge, the oven
+ and an emulsion lift demonstration for C
+ lying in the sun on the deck watching the clouds float by
+ before retreating inside when the rain started again
+ D showing me how to separate honey from wax
+ marinating oyster mushrooms
+ trying a recipe from kinfolk table
+ chicken tacos (loving Nic’s tacos) for dinner
+ then all four of us piling on the sofa to watch a movie
+ brunch at the oyster inn before dropping C&D at the ferry
+ slow-cooked lamb for dinner

We did! And I am looking forward to having you here (we both are).
i LOVE that Tolle quote! yay for first guests and the good times (and good eats) that ensued!
I have had that quote sitting in front of me for a while. This seemed like the perfect place to showcase it. Thankful for all of it xox
Love this! Amazing to see how much that island lights you up :)
Walter Mitty is in my top 10 xx
It’s not without its fair share of frustrations, although yes, we are very happy here
Love it. Love. it.
Your photos capture the spirit of your weekend.
