The three keywords that would describe my long weekend is RELAX, CHILL and ENJOY.
When its warm in Australia and the sun is out, we would usually spend a whole day out at the beach with family and/or friends. Who wouldn’t?
So, basically I spent the whole day at Balmoral Beach in Sydney – one of the best spots that is not tainted by tourists XD. You actually get room to BREATHE and STRETCH your body out! Although there aren’t too many shops around, there are cafes and restaurants to eat at while admiring the view.
I was basically sleeping and chilling on the sand but did have some occasional dips in the ocean. When I do go in the water, I love to the play with the waves and just float on my back as I look up at the blue sky.
Honestly, time flies by so fast when you are the beach. Only four hours have passed and I did absolutely nothing productive! (Unless you count sleeping and playing the water productive 😅). Also, catching up with friends does make the time go faster as well. I did spend some time reading a book but that did not stop me from taking short naps at every change I can get. I can’t even rest like this at home because I am always distracted with work and dramas.
But after 7 hours since chilling at the beach, our stomachs could not take it any longer. So we packed up and left straightaway for food. Unfortunately the damn toilets and bathroom were under construction 😦 Could not even find a tap to wash the sand off. I was glad I had some wet tissues and it worked well to clean everywhere!
Hair is still hard to maintain because of the salt water but does not look to bad – thank goodness! I could feel this weird burning sensation on the back of my thighs though. Oh shit! I got a sun burn. Even my face is red and because I was wearing my sunnies the whole day, the areas around my eyes are still pale which contrasts to the redness. Luckily it is still sunny so I’m safe to wear them till I get home without looking crazy.
