Kim was excited to give Curtis his birthday present, so she did that when we woke up.
The present was a bunch of snacks from all the other countries we have lived in or will live in, so the UK, New Zealand and Norway.
Curtis loved this gift so much and is looking forward to tucking into the snacks with Kim.
We woke up around 10:00 and got ourselves ready.
We then headed down to a cafe we had walked past yesterday and got ourselves some breakfast.
Kim got herself a croissant with tomato and goats cheese along with an iced caramel latte. Curtis got a breakfast wrap and a flat white.
We headed back to the hotel to eat our breakfast and then finished getting ready to go out for the day.
We drove for about 10 minutes to get to the Train Wreck, which is exactly what it sounds like! This is a train wreck from the 1950s which has been used a graffiti spot for artists as well as a trick/jump spot for mountain bikers!
We walked through a forest and across a cool suspension bridge to get to the wreck and a beautiful river to boot!
We got some great photos in and around the Train Wreck and learned a little about what happened and what they are used for now.
We left the wreck and took another drive to Rainbow Park.
We didn’t spent too long here, but we walked around for a bit and took in the peacefulness of the park and the beautiful (smokey) view.
We went out for a dinner at 17:00 to a restaurant not far from us.
This is the first time we have been in a proper restaurant for dinner together since COVID-19 hit the world, so it was a little strange but we were outside and very distanced.
We got some wine to share and then for food Kim got duck breast whilst Curtis got some venison!
For dessert, Curtis got a lemon tart and Kim got a chocolate fondant!
This arrived with a candle and ‘happy birthday’ on it from the staff at the hotel for Curtis’ birthday, which was very kind!
We finished our food and then headed back to the hotel. It turned out that we had been our for about 8 hours, though it didn’t feel like it!
When we got back, we watched The Social Dilemma and then played some Connect 4, which was included with Curtis’ birthday present.
This Time Last Year!
