It's A Good Thing This Is Virtual!!

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Just had to get a quick Blog here to let you all know that I finally caught up with the Group and I am at the Campsite with everyone. Joan, Thanks for the Coffee!! It really DID hit the spot!! AND, thanks for rescuing my Towel that I left at Conspicuous Beach!! With all of the 'Side Trips' that I made, I got nearly 20,000 Steps today.
I got up early thinking that I would be able to keep up with the Group for once and then I had to make a "Quick" run to the Store for Sunscreen. On the way back I ran across a bunch of Lizards that I couldn't resist watching. I think they were Shakespearean Geckos and while I usually don't like any kind of Lizards, these were Adorable!

I did see your Pink Hats in the Distance and I tried to catch up, but I kept getting distracted. I did stop and look at the Elephant Rocks and they are AMAZING!! They really did resemble a Herd of Elephants.

And I after seeing MillieMouse's Pictures I am SURE that I saw A small flock of Fairy Penguins! They really were adorable and I do understand Gail wanting to take one Home, LOL!!

When I finally got to the Campsite, Gail had Stew ready for everyone. With the Coffee that Joan gave me earlier, I think I might make it!! One of the things that I was worried about when I started this Trek was the Food. I am not much of a Cook, even when I have all the "Modern Conveniences" and a Grocery Store on the corner. But you Girls have really helped me out with showing me how to cook Oatmeal on and Pancakes on a Campfire (Thanks, Ann!!) and with sharing what you make. And then there are all the Fabulous Local Places that Ann found for us to enjoy eating. I am pretty sure that I embarrassed everyone with the Desserts at the Teahouse the other night. I had never had Lamb before and it was AWESOME. Then I couldn't make up my mind which Dessert to have, so I had BOTH -- The Sticky date Pudding AND the Chocolate Pudding with Warm Berries and Ice Cream!! Of course, I did share the Sticky Date Pudding with Gail!
Hey, did someone mention S'Mores!? Can I get one? I brought extra Marshmallows!!

    I haven't been commenting a lot... (I had computer issues for a loooong time here)... but just wanted to let you know I've been reading along on the trip and drooling with ... um... envy is an ugly word, isn't it? But so glad you have / are having this incredible experience!

    Oh yeah it was a day to stop and look at the views! I was late getting in too so don't feel bad! And the Little/fairy penguins were too adorable to not stop and watch! It looks like your Geckos were having a fight. I'd have stopped to watch that myself! emoticon blog!
