Today started out in a very positive way: blue sky and sunshine after a night of wind and rain. Honey and yogurt for breakfast and our usual morning beach walk with plans to bike into town later for bread and an ATM run. But that was not to be. We connected almost too well with our new next door neighbors, Katie and Derek from Australia and New Zealand, respectively. They’ve lived in London for about 4 years and decided on a six month trip by Campervan through Europe before heading back to Australia where her sister lives.
I think it was about 10 am when Katie offered gin and tonic or vodka and orange juice. I don’t remember how many gin and tonics I had but Klaus, from Berlin, joined the party and beer was involved. It’s now 8:40 pm and I think I lost a day. I think we ended up in their camper. I know we had a good time.

We talked a lot about movies and shared a few. They must have 100 movies on their computer! Klaus gave us a tour of his really cool new VW with electronic pop top and went off on his motorbike to get more beer. He came back with a case. Even with limited English, Klaus was a part of the group and we all had a great time. Like I said, I have no idea how much I drank. We ate crackers for dinner.
Time for bed. You can’t expect me to really remember what happened today can you?
