We have enjoyed a few glorious days, just right for swimming and surfing. It was good timing for our Canberra family who spent the last three nights with us.
We had plenty of beach time, with kite flying and boogie boarding included. Then there were all those games like Monopoly and Munchkin! Food is always a highlight of our times together, and somehow music and dancing gets woven in by the younger members. Our neighbours came over for pizza night and entertainment!
The excitement of the summer holidays will simmer along, but next time we see our Canberra family will be when the Paris Whitelaws are visiting with their new son in March. Much excitement for everyone then!

life is a ‘b**ch’ here too only dark skies, torrents, gales & floods. Lovely warm contrast you have especially the family jamming. The new member has much to look forward to! p.s. I like the new avatar ? oystercatcher
yes it is, a sooty oystercatcher, they frequent the beach here, with pied oystercatchers … such lovely birds … glad you like it … the background sand was a little too dark so i lightened it and i think it is ok now …. sorry your weather is so poor 😦 at least you are not freezing like so much of North America … we will be in London in early June, hoping for warmth by then! PS the baby will be sure to be musical, with his mother a violinist and all the musicality on offer from our side 😀
Kite flying and boogie boarding followed by Monopoly – where’s my invite 🙂 It all sounds wonderful x
and the sourdough pancakes (Stuart’s new discovery using his home-grown starter) were delicious … and so much easier on the digestive system! Pop in when you are passing Claire, I am sure that will happen one day 🙂
Looks like everyone ate well and had fun.
a satisfactory outcome, the weather definitely helped!
It looks like a perfect break for Canberra folk and a lovely family get together, with great food and entertainment 🙂
Oh, how warm it all looks! Thank you for warming me up on this chilly day. 🙂
Fabulous summer pics, Christine. Enjoy the warmth. 🙂
that beach looks so inviting! temps are above freezing again in my corner of the planet. there was only snow for a few days before Christmas. but it is raining, raining, raining. and coolish. your beach is a very welcome reprieve 🙂
We are so lucky to have the sun, surf and sand over here. Enjoy your family.
