Even though it was only a day tip – I wish it were more than just a day – to Rye, I can’t begin to explain how wonderful the day was overall.
The Peninsula Hot Springs, as you now know, was amazing, but there was something so special about spending valuable time with my closest friends two hours away from home. I mean, nearly all of us are in University and we obviously have our own lives so it’s most definitely not every day that we get to do this; having this moment with them and sharing these memories with them made me feel appreciative of what I have and who I have in my life because honestly – cue the sentimentality – my friends mean the world to me, and their company is more than special to me, too.
After the Hot Springs we went to the beach nearby and had lunch. We spent the day building sand castles, attempting cartwheels on the beach and of course, for me, taking picturesque photographs of the beach and eating ice cream. And despite it being autumn, the day was superb. There was hardly a cloud in the sky.
But, as I mentioned in my previous post, this wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Indy and her turning twenty. So, let’s raise a glass to Indy!
