So, this isn't very important... but it makes me smile. Two of my favorite Prestatyn-dwellers, Nic and Jordan, like to call me 'Chan Chan'. When I saw my ferry ticket, I laughed because it made me think of them!
The start of the Portrush Raft Race.
The teams all had different themes. I was rather fond of these guys. Hardcore Irish, right?
A pirate raft that definitely took a long time to finish. I think they might have capsized.
Styrofoam rafts. Clever, but dysfunctional.
A bunch of the rafts rounding the cliff.
And the finish!
That's pretty much it. I know, not too exciting, but it's something. I'm mighty proud of myself for remembering to take some pictures. Ha.
So, that's the purpose of this post, but you know what? I kinda want to talk. So I will!
About a week ago we moved to Kennewick, Washington. Oh my gosh, I love Kennewick. Absolutely love it. It's sunny all the time (I thought it would rain), it's a pretty small city, and the people are really friendly. I think I love it so much because it reminds me of Benbrook, TX, where I grew up. The whole moving experience sucked a bit (especially since it coincided with my birthday), but it wasn't too bad. We didn't have any furniture other than air mattresses, an army cot, and 5 camp chairs for 4 days or so, no internet for a little over a week, and no TV for a little over a week. I didn't mind the internet and TV, but I really miss having a bed. Even now I'm sleeping on the couch because I don't have a bedroom and my brother couldn't set up his waterbed due to the lease, so he gets my old bed. Another incentive to get back to Wales! Ha.
Ok, so I guess I didn't want to talk too much since that's all I had to say. Hope y'all are doing well!
By the way, I am obsessed with Mumford & Sons. Their new album comes out September 24th. I'm just a little bit beyond psyched.
