It was Tuesday, we were supposed to be on the beach, but it RAINED, so we had to find something to do.
As luck would have it, and it just always does when you travel, lovely Helen from the best shop ever, with amazing clothes and brilliant sun shades (as per photos), Bryon Beach life, took it upon herself to send me such an amazing list of things to do. One of said things was a circus training workshop with Circus Arts Australia, for the girls. That sounded excellent, and perfect for just another Tuesday, so booked it was. Rashly, I also booked myself in. For the flying trapeze. I mean WTF? Why did I decide to do that, I thought, as I climbed the rickety ladder to impending doom at the top. Leaning forward into the abyss (yes, harnessed but abyss nonetheless) to grab the trapeze was not an easy feat. But miraculously, a leap of faith, a fair few screeches and closed eyes, and magic ensued! And now we are all hooked! We now wish to run away with the circus, immediately.
