My parents and I will be spending the next week at Bridport, a small sunny beach town on Tasmania's north-east coast. It is a very relaxing place. There's a beautifully long and undeveloped beach that's 30 minutes walk from where we'll be staying. There are also vineyards in the area. We'll probably have lunch at one of those for my Mum's birthday, which is next week. The place where we'll be staying does have a phone line, but it may be a very old setup and impossible to connect to my iBook. We'll see. Even if I can get onto the web, I may prefer to be unplugged for a little time.
