Negative expectations are a quick route to dead-end thinking.
John C. Maxwell
I had a young friend who had had a very difficult life growing up. He told me that the best way to approach life was to always expect the worst and then he wouldn't be disappointed. Considering his childhood and teenage years I can understand his thinking, but it seemed impossible to change his outlook. By the time he was 30 my friend had 2 children he didn't see any more; a failed marriage and a number of failed relationships; and a failed suicide attempt. Circumstances have meant that we have lost touch, but I often think about him and wonder if he has been able to overcome his negative expectations of life, and if so, has he achieved a happier and more fulfilling existence.
P:-) and I spent the last 3 days at Sanctuary Point on St Georges basin. We took our caravan and had a great site under a couple of very big eucalyptus trees. There was no one else camping near us.. It was a very small and friendly caravan park which suited us better than the larger resort style parks we often stay in.

We lived in the lap of luxury with a TV........

and a mozzie zapper.

On the first day we went on a walk around the headland. First there was beach strewn with sea-grass which had washed up on the sand.......
Then the path headed up across the headland...........

where we spotted some native flannel flowers.

Flannel flowers like to grow in scrubby heathland. We continued along our path and headed back down to the water where we came across some men with remote controlled yachts, competing against each other as they maneuvered their yachts around miniature buoys.
On the walk back along the road we found a coffee shop which made lovely coffee.
