Saturday 1st September 2012

First of all it's fathers day back in oz, Happy Fathers Day Dad, wish I could be there with you. :-(
I love you heaps. xxx And happy fathers day to all the other dad's out there too.
I managed to skype Dad and the rest of the family tonight, was great seeing them all and catching up, although it makes me sad, I miss them all so much. Love u guys. xxx

Well today we went into town, in Toms truck, as they call it here it's actually a ute, but don't tell these Americans that...lol
We had to get a lot of supplies including a lot of cleaning products, am going through them at an alarming rate.
  
We went into Middletown, sounds like something out of Lord of the Rings...lol
We took a drive through the main street what a place so many cute old buildings, I will have to take my camera next time and get some pics, I'll put them up on Facebook.
After driving for what seemed like hours we finally managed to get what we needed, I tell you it is so much easier back in Australia at least they have proper shopping centers, here you have to drive miles to find anything.
 We went searching for some figs, we had them the other night at Wendy's place wrapped in prosciutto, and they were so nice.
So the search was on several stores later no luck, then we remembered that the Amish, people who live here have a stall every Saturday on the side of the road, there is a very big community of them, the other day we saw a family mum, dad and three kids, on a wagon being drawn by two horses...it's crazy.
So anyway we stopped at there stall and they did not have any but told us to go down the end of the road as their daughters farm is down there and she will give us some.
Well what an experience, man it was like stepping onto the set of little house on the prairie, I swear to god.
They had a little house in the middle of fields and about 7 or 8 kids running around all dressed like the olden days, and all working in and around the place.
Crazy, crazy stuff, but you know they were all happy and so friendly, and you got a real sense of peace, was just amazing.
So finally made it back to the boat with our figs, and it was so hot we did nothing much for the rest of the day.
All my plans for carrying on cleaning went out the window and we just rested.

Well tomorrow is another day.
