Journal Entry:
Got up and Sofie had already gone out to take care of some Christmas shopping. I puttered around the house until she got back. We walked into the city center, then caught a ferry to Watsons Bay. Had a huge lunch which sort of went against the day's healthy motif, but what can you do? We spent a little over two hours walking back around the harbor's edge through the Nielson Park, Vaulcluse, and Rose Bay. From there Sof was getting blisters, and frankly I'd walked enough so we caught a taxi back to the house. Hung out a bit then went to meet Chris and David, a work friend of his at the nearby Paddington Inn pub for a few pints and diner. Continuing our good behavior, Sof and I made plans to swim early tomorrow moring.
