We started the day with a trip to the dentist! Very eventful, but the drive was pretty. We then went to Cardinham Woods, where we adventured in the rain until we were cold and damp. At this little cafe, I got a white chocolate raspberry cake and made Craig take photos of Rachael and I. We ventured on, and explored the shore, climbed up a big tower of rocks for a great view of the ocean. By the time we got back to the car, we were all soaking wet, makeup in shambles, but it was such a great time. Finally, we went and visited Rachael’s family and I was so thankful to be able to meet everyone.
*** August 15-17, 2017 :
For the next few days I relaxed at Rachael’s house and watched all of Black Mirror (great show, highly recommend) and just enjoyed my time with two of the loveliest people on the planet. On the 17th, I left and caught a train to London and met up with my friend Omar. It was wonderful to see him! Unfortunately, I was exhausted from my day of train travel, and wound up just having a movie marathon day with him, chatting about life and enjoying each other’s company. I leave on the 18th at 5am for the airport to go to Brussels! ***
