With little man at school, they played hookey
and went for lunch, indulging in a five course tasting menu
at The Wild Garlic,
the rustic restaurant owned by Masterchef winner Mat Follas.
A much appreciated Christmas present!
To counteract her indulgence fuelled guilt,
they headed for the nearby coast.
To stretch their legs and clear her wine fuzzed head!
She swapped shiny shoes (her new year sale bargain) for boots ...
... and donned oldest Levis under her dress.
From Eype Bay, they puffed up the muddied hill to nearby West Bay
The path moving further inland each year after numerous landslides
Heading back towards the beach.
Clambering over slimy, briny rocks on to the shore.
Landslips have rent rock ...
... tumbled to the shore.
The landscape they knew now unrecognisable.
Lava lines and mudslides.
Thick grey clay, upended trees.
Crashing waves and fallen land converging.
A rivulet of earth dances down the cliff nearby.
They laugh a laugh of fear.
Their pace quickens, adrenaline fuelled.
Little house, living on a knife edge ...
