We got up on Sunday morning, finished all our packing, and then hit the road. Once we arrived at our destination, we unpacked, and spent some time just taking in the view from our balcony. The view from the top was incredible! We then headed out to pick up a couple of supplies from the shop. When we returned to the residence, my mum started to cook some dinner, and we went to the pool. Considering it was over 100 degrees, it is no surprise that we jumped right in!
Monday, we got up and Penny boarded over to a local coffee shop. Once we had got some caffeine in our system, we then headed back to the house. After spending some time in the pool, it rained in the evening. Now, the rain wasn't unpleasant but it wasn't exactly the weather we had hoped for. There was lightning and thunder, which wasn't good as wildfire season was already bad! So, to keep ourselves entertained we headed over to the local Walmart. My Dad had the fun idea that we should get a Go Pro camera. So he did. We purchased the Go Pro Hero3. I also purchased some DVD's (maybe I will post about them later). We spent the rest of the day setting the camera up and playing with it.
Thursday we headed back to the beach. We spent the day doing pretty much the same as we did on the Tuesday. I went for another Kayak session with my Dad, but since the wind had picked up this day, it wasn't as far.

Friday and Saturday were spent by the pool. By this time we were all starting to get tired from being active all the time. If we hadn't been swimming, we had been kayaking. If we weren't kayaking, we were walking around exploring. I managed to finish two book by this point and started my third. We also spent the evenings laughing and watching Burn Notice on Netflix. The apartment also had an Xbox so my brother and I raced some cars. I even won a couple of times with my Ferrari. Let's just say I don't do rematches... I quit when I'm ahead!

I had such a great week and I am sad that it is over and that it's time to go back to "real" life. However, I have a lot to be thankful for and a lot to look forward to including a my birthday, a weekend getaway, Ed Sheeran in concert, and the start of a new college life.
Thanks for stopping by!
