Time to Leave

Apologies galore for the absolutely shocking lack of posts here at Graham's landing. I could use lots of excuses- but ultimately it all comes down to the last few days of a mad term. Not just any term, but the final term in a year...and the final year of three here in Borneo. 
There's been smiles.
There's been tears.
Lots of good times 
and lots of goodbyes..
but now I feel I'm finally done. 
Time for a little 'staycation' in the place I've called home for the last three years. Time to be a tourist in my hometown and do a bit of relaxing before the real holidays and my final departure.
After the last couple of weeks of mayhem, I spent a day lazing at the beach my favourite place here in Sabah, Gaya Island. For those eagle eyed amongst you will know that this is the place on my header photograph..My own Graham's landing. It's a lovely, very quiet little place, somewhere to just sit and chill and do a bit of snorkling.
 We would always have the beach to ourselves, sit in the shade of the tree and just chill- Bliss!
Not so yesterday- others have obviously discovered the island too and a group of about 40 kids and adults joined us. 
Our peace might have been shattered by the joyous shouts of the children in then water, but they were having lots of fun. We were even serenaded by a group of guys strumming along to their guitar whilst sitting in the tree above us.
It might not have been the kind of day we expected, but still we all enjoyed it in our own little ways...and maybe it was just yet another sign to tell us that it's time to move on.

    1. Thanks, a week or so here then off to Oz. very excited:)

  3. Hope you enjoy your last bit of time there, it must be so hard to have to make this move, but I hope you'll enjoy it.

    1. I have a month of holidays before coming back to the UK so making the most of it. I think the hardest part is the uncertainty of knowing what I'll be doing when I get back...but then I'll cross that bridge when I come to it:)


If you'd like to make a comment I'd love to hear from you. Thanks :)
