Even during the busiest times of the year, down time is necessary. I always know when it is needed, depending on the various levels of grumpiness that comes home, from the paddock.
Sometimes, the men of the farm, work it out for themselves, other times, they need a woman to suggest it’s time to head for the beach. (That can entail careful handling of the situation – if the men think you’re trying to STOP them from working (heaven forbid!) it can cause conflict. Usually a big one!)
This was one of the times, the men worked it out for themselves.
Nobody seemed to mind there was a howling easterly blowing (which can make a beach visit very uncomfortable) or it was really cold.
The kids love to be able to ‘fight’
There is always a winner.
I am NO fisherwoman. In fact, I can’t see any fun in standing in front of the waves, holding a fishing line. I’m more of a ‘lets-check-out-what’s-happening-here’ type of girl.
My family say that anytime I step onto Thomas River, the wild life that look out. I’ll shoot anything. *raises eyebrows* I actually think they’re all pretty safe, since I’m shooting with a Canon!
