My man and I were in the car headed for 'somewhere' yesterday - destination unclear, unplanned, unknown. Not that it mattered. It was Sunday, 'our day' for enjoying each other's company out of the everyday routine of work, creating, eating, TV and sleeping.
I was feeling lighter already after only a few minutes in to our drive because there's something about the feeling of adventure I really love. Equally is my love for quiet time and simple pleasures at home where I feel peace in the ordinary moments too. As we travelled along, my man did a great job of pointing out exits and turns we could take to reach certain destinations, all the while staying on the motorway. We were headed south and it felt refreshing, truthfully we hadn't had time like this for a while.
He keeps asking me where I want to go and what do I want to do. I suggest lunch on the Gold Coast, at Southport. We get there and he drives straight past where I say I want to go. I'm all "what are you doing? Where are we going?" until it quickly dawns on me he's had a plan all along. (Just like I'd asked him or said a couple of times already!) _
We pull into the car park at Sea World (😃😃😃) and I start asking lots of questions like a kid at Christmas. I'm so happy to be there, letting the surprise sink in and can't help grinning from ear to ear.
Once we're inside and have lunch, we wander along gradually making our way to see the Dolphin Presentation. Seeing the stingrays was interesting (watching kids feeding them was MORE interesting), seeing the penguins swim & jump was fun - BUT - watching the dolphins was complete JOY for me. They were everything I remembered from a family holiday over 20 years ago. I actually felt the tears well up a few times while my heart got reacquainted with the joy of being out and about with my Love immersed in the moments full of play right in front of us. It was such a beautiful experience to be part of and affirmed my growing desires for doing or experiencing everything that brings me real pleasure. I hope this serves you x
