Homeward Bound



























Today we are leaving the beach and heading home.  Despite the rain we've done so many wonderful things together as a family.  We've played scrabble and chess, we've been to a seaside carnival, we've cooked, we've read, we've talked, we've slept, we've walked, we've fished and made sandcastles but most of all we've shared happy times together.  I am looking forward to heading home and preparing myself for the exciting year ahead.

PS.  It would be remiss of me not to mention our Queensland neighbours who are experiencing the most horrendous floods and turmoil.  We can help them by giving a donation to the Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal online HERE

It looks and sounds like you've enjoyed the type of Chrismas holiday that will be treasured as warm memories for a long time to come.

I especially liked the photos of the gorgeous beach umbrellas that you've shared, a stylish necessity at this time of the year - although you're right in pointing out that other kinds of umbrellas are probably more suitable at the moment!

Safe travels home,

Sounds like a wonderful respite from everyday life that you have had! I am a huge scrabble fan and family get togethers are synonomous with mean rounds of scrabble and monopoly and now Jeopardy since we can play it online! Nothing like those quality times with our loved ones. The pictures reflected the visit very effectively. Safe travels home....
