We went from reading our books on the couch, to reading books on the beach. And that's pretty much all we did, mix in some delicious food, cribbage, and crosswords, while we were at Pearl Beach. Gillian and Michael were generous (again!) and offered their house for us to use as our trip winds down. It turned out to be the perfect break we needed.
No more time was needed planning our next destination (it's HOME!) and we weren't driving so all we had to do was sit back and enjoy. It felt like a vacation and was much enjoyed.
