Thankful Thursday

I'm sitting on the deck of a friend's holiday home at Mount Maunganui  listening to the waves along the Marine Parade after a day playing croquet.   It's coming on for 11pm.  The weather today was warm and sunny and, frankly, pretty idyllic.   Yesterday I walked along the beach for an hour as it went dark.  The water was lovely and warm.  Tonight I did the same.  Wonderful.

Before I came away the weather forecast was for 4 days of rain and showers and so far we've been lucky and the playing conditions have been perfect.

My knee that will soon need replacing is giving me trouble but I am conscious that it is a minor inconvenience in my life compared with the trials and tribulations and injuries suffered both mental and physical by many Christchurch residents.
I am thankful for the luxury of good weather and companionship and for the fact that my injuries are so small and insignificant compared with those of so many people.

  1. Walking along a beach sounds lovely... Here they keep promising sunshine and milder weather but that seems to get postponed one day at a time. I guess the sun decided to stay in the southern hemisphere! Hope the tournament is going well for you.
