It was so relaxing! Pat has been working so hard lately, pretty much seven days a week, and he really needed to stop. So we did! It was so liberating to realise that we didn't have to be anywhere by a certain time, that we could just potter about and take as long over anything and everything as we wanted.
I even made the decision not to take dozens of photographs. This is because usually I am so involved in taking pics and fiddling with my camera that I forget to just be there, actually look at what is around me, and enjoy the place. We walked around the town, amongst all those pretty little buildings, and I could appreciate them there and then, rather than trying to take good shots that I could look at later to remember what I'd seen. Better to actually see it while you are there! (And there is a BIG difference between looking and seeing!)
And as you can see from this picture, the rest did us both good - we look so mellow, don't we?
Incidentally, I've worked out how to upload photos onto Blogger again, but it takes forever - I read three chapters of a book while waiting for these to upload. Maybe its my laptop, or just our rural broadband speed, but its a whole lot of hard work....
