We arrived back from our amazing holiday on Lord Howe Island on Saturday. No phone, no television and walking everywhere - intended bike riding was out of the question this time! There is a 25 km/hour speed limit and nobody locks anything - a bit hard to get used to at first, but what a way to live! The weather was balmy one day, raining the next - it means we had some pleasant walks and I managed to read four books (I think that is a record for me).
It is really difficult to come back down to earth now after a week of three wonderful meals (and afternoon tea) every day at Pine Trees Resort. At home I have one daughter cooking me meals - at least until my wrist is a bit more capable - but the images of the holiday linger. It's great to be home, but...........!
I will return to Lord Howe Island before too long - of that I'm sure - and next time I'll be bike ready!
