Blogging from the coast


We're 2 days into our holiday. Believe it or not, when we realised that there was broadband available in our holiday apartment, the boy went into Harvey Normans and bought a MacBook. Otherwise my holiday blog posts would be handwritten on paper and you'd all be spared them...

The weather's great, the beach and the shops (dress shops!) are only a few minutes walk away in opposite directions, and TLM is loving the heated pool just outside our door.

I took TLM on a ride on the miniature railway this morning and it's really pretty cool; there are three trains all going in different directions - over and under bridges, through tunnels and overlooking the well-used paddling pool. Actually, I might've enjoyed the ride more than she did.

You look suffused with joy on the train.

I'm not surprised you've got broadband access. When we stay at Kamp Krusty, which is in the middle of nowhere and, well pretty Krusty, they have wireless broadband there as well.

donnasoowho: Yeah, I was the one going "woohoo!" at every corner.I'm a bit out of touch with what's available at holiday places. I can still remember staying at a youth hostel where there was an Internet-enabled computer - and marvelling at the possibility of sending info home without resorting to postcards.

no milk: hey - those grownups riding on the train aren't just there to stopping the littlies from falling off y'know!

nigel: ta - we're having a lovely time and TLM is now progressing to doggie paddle.
