She is currently reading Isablle Allende's book Maya's Notebook. She has another Isabelle Allende book coming up with her Canadian book group so this is a good introduction to Allende.
I am reading Pat Conroy's Beach Music still but it is dragging still. I think I will probably give it up and move to something lighter. I am finding it too hard to concentrate with days currently filled with activities of company. It isn't often we get company down here in Tasmania as we are so far from everyone in North America so we tend to overdo it when someone does visit. I'll be catching up with books in March.
Today we took a Seaplane trip from the waterfront of Hobart up the east coast of Tasmania to Wine Glass Bay in the Coles Bay area. Lonely Planet has named these beaches as the number one beaches in the world. Can't get much better than that.
The plane landed at the beach and we hopped out of the plane, walked to the beach, had some morning tea and biscuits and then back in the plane for the return trip. It was very misty out and the shoreline was absolutely stunning. I have put a few photos here.
We still have a couple more day trips to do before our sister/sister-in-law returns home. I hope we last that long as we are all exhausting ourselves with fun.
