Cabin fever

Bicheno is cut off from the rest of the world. Or rather, the world is cut off from Bicheno. After a morning of getting soaked to the bones working around the tourist park in driving rain, we discover all roads out of here are flooded.
Cecile's yoga class is cancelled.
David is suffering from acute cabin fever.
How many times can one play Bach's Bouree on the guitar before risking :
a - a divorce
b - wearing the guitar around one's neck
c - being assaulted by fellow caravaners in the tourist park.
Our on-site van definitely feels smaller today, it must be shrinking in the rain. And the distance to the toilet/shower block is stretching in the downpour.
It's okay! We will survive, and we have ample supplies of the traditional remedy for cabin fever : rum (to be had, in our case, as a hot toddy, with lemon juice and lovely Tasmanian leather wood honey).

  1. Hi David and Cecile. Mother nature is the "BOSS" at the moment all around the world.

    Regards, Paul.
