ONWARD AND UPWARD ~ Virtual Trek in Australia

Sunday, May 12, 2013

In this virtual jaunt we have some lovely accommodations. I'm writing my blog from what I call a sunny veranda, a tall cool glass of mint tea by my side, (with an umbrella of course and a sprig of fresh mint for garnish), and reclining with my laptop propped up.

Varied were our excursions today consisting of a leisurely walk through Perth, strolling on the beach, swimming and sunbathing with the sea lions, not to mention swimming with the dolphins and visiting the penguins. Don't tell anyone but I did sneak a sardine or two in. A most appreciative penguin slid right in a gobbled it up before the others took notice. I'm not too certain about the snorkeling, I saw mostly sea weed but there is always next time. Oh the secrets those dolphins shared. Oh what's that? No, no, I can't say a word, I was sworn to secrecy; certainly can't break a confidence like that.

With all this virtual activity, I actually accomplished my warm up, stretch, got in 500 steps today, made lunch, and cleaned dishes.

Spark on!

    Thank you all for your encouraging comments on my Trek blog. Yes, DeAnne, it's a great vacation in virtual cyber. We have a lot of fun and only spend virtual $$$. Really easy on the pocket book! I'm learning to use imagination in a virtual world. The others on board are making it easy for me. =)

Thanks Gail and IKacey, you all make it easy. Looking forward to getting to know everyone.
