Despite the appalling election result on Saturday night, we managed to have an enjoyable weekend down South.
In fact, we anaesthetised ourselves very effectively on Saturday night with plenty of booze, so by the time the awful, but tragically inevitable results were announced, we were blissfully non compos mentis.
Anyway, I don't want to bring you all down by banging on by how depressing the results are, so let's leave that and look at some pics:

The weather was warm, but not quite warm enough to lose the layers.
We all went to the beach, but only the young and brave went swimming:
M made the most delicious Victoria Sandwich cake All By Herself! She decorated it with fresh cream and strawberries. It was demolished very swiftly.
A very civilised breakfast:
As mentioned above, we allowed ourselves a number of drinks on Saturday night, and cooked a Greek feast of Souvlaki, Stuffed Peppers and Salads. There are no pictures of the feast, unfortunately, as I had drifted into the land of the inebriated by then.
Instead, here's a rather blurry pic of the living room, which will give you an idea of the general atmosphere
The following day, in order to 'blow the cobwebs away' (so to speak) we went on a walk along the coast.
Australia takes its civic duties very seriously.
As you can see, almost everything is either forbidden or very dangerous and not advised!!
Don't worry. We managed to survive the weekend despite the terrible dangers awaiting us at every corner.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
If you're Australian, I hope you're not too utterly horrified by the thought of our new Prime Minister....
