My New Toy!

A week or so ago, I was thrilled to get a package from Australia.

It was from Fruitcake.  

She sent me a Aussie flag thong pool floatie thing. 

Today we used it for the first time.

I think it's one of the most comfortable rafts I've ever been on.

It's funny because I didn't expect that.

I thought it was just a cool novelty thing that would be great for photo ops. 

But the little toe thingie is like a pillow, and it's REALLY nice.

I had a lovely time with it and will hopefully use it again tomorrow.

Jack rode on it a little bit, and he also had fun with our Aussie towel in the wind.

Thanks for the photos!

The weather is getting cooler here, so I'm jealous of your nice weather for making a splash.

I'm not surprised the toe thingie makes a good pillow - thongs are ALWAYS comfortable.
Unless the weather demands socks.

Thanks for the gift!! I love it so much.

I disagree with you about thongs though. My toes usually end up getting a little blister thing...if I wear the thongs for a long walk.

Maybe Australians have special toes....

^^ I think we must, because no other nation seems able to rival our loge for thongs. My Irish fiancé can't stand wearing his for too long whereas I am part of the Facebook group 'real Australian's sprint in thongs'. They feel like the most natural extension of my foot and are always my footwear of choice!

Kate Sparkles,

My hypothesis is that the B vitamins in Vegemite builds up strong skin around the toe area.

That leads to more comfort while wearing thongs.
