Bridport 2011

We have just come back from a beach camping holiday. Three weeks by the sea in the northern Tassie town of Bridport. We started the tradition a few years ago in order to catch up with the Bradbury family. Our theory is the further north we go the warmer it will be. I am not sure if that was the case this year, the fair weather days were scattered a little too infrequently. Regardless, we have come home wishing the holiday had not ended so soon.

Deeanne Bradbury and I have been friends for about sixteen years, we met in Brisbane and it probably made it easier for our family to move to Tassie because Dee lived here. We spent hours walking, talking and staying up late to talk some more. We have been discussing some of the same topics for the last sixteen years and it is interesting to see how our perspectives change with the additional insight that age and experience gifts. I do not think we had enough time to discuss all our thoughts and experiences for the year, but we parted with a promise to catch up soon. I hope this is the case.

Thanks for the company, I love good friends.
