Was very nice. Saturday the weather was not so great so we stuck around the house and did some reading and attended a lecture with Sue on Hanoverian horse breeding. I probably understood 2 sentences the entire hour but was happy I went bc there was the most amazing carrot cake. Pretty much horse people are their own type of breed. All they talk about is horses and I just kept shoveling carrot cake in my mouth so no one would start talking to me bc my knowledge of horse breeding is a stallion is a male and a mare is a female.
That afternoon Sue and Mike had friends over for a "Barbie". Ps. they don't call shrimp, shrimp but prawns. So, when I made the joke of "throw another shrimp on the barbie" they got very defensive and quickly corrected me that they don't even call it that, but they do say Barbie
Sunday was a bit of an adventure. They had a horse show that Jack a roo was competing in for the first time. He was the only contestant in his class so he won first prize. I opted to head to the beach. It was a bit of a trek but I was determined to see the Indian Ocean. I first biked for about 7 miles, then caught a train and then another train and walked a 1/2 mile to the beach. Once I got there I immediately passed out. The beach town was adorable, a lot of young people. It had a strip with all outdoor restaurants and surf shops. The houses around them were very charming and looked pretty expensive but an awesome place to live. There were lots of surfers but everytime I heard a kid scream I was just waiting for someone to yell "shark"! I put my feet in Overall the adventure was a good one, the trains were easy to figure out and were extremely nice, but comapred to NYC subways anything is. Lets just say the floor of the train station was cleaner than the floor of my old apartment complex.
It is Monday and I am off to work! Enjoy the last of your weekend! xo.
