except when you are at the beach and you couldn't care less what was happening to the rest of the world!! only joking :) i missed my little blog and those who read it. (blogging has become a welcomed release for me)
the week away was absolutely wonderful, just what two tired teachers needed. our morning routine consisted of a visit to the waves then on to the beach pool and a wash off at the water fountains. after our midday rest we headed to the park and down to the calm beach and a visit to the rock pools once the tide had gone out. we didn't waste a minute, the only thing i didn't do was take a lot of photos. but you get the idea from the ones below.
this is 'bullcock beach'. it is like a quiet inlet style beach where the waves lull gently to the shore. the current can get quite strong but if you go at the right time it is just great. i am glad we came here early in the week because it helped Claudia get over her fear of the crashing waves.
another shot at 'bullcock beach'. i love candid shots when no one knows you are taking the photo. they sat here for the longest time just letting the waves wash over them.
this shot is of 'kings beach' it is known for its big surf and this is where my eldest, lili loves to be. she would stay in the surf all day if she was allowed. Chelsea (my niece) came for a visit and a play in the surf.
claudia does own clothes but earlier she had done a poo in her knickers (which had to be thrown away, that's how bad the situation was!) and we had to wash her butt off in the salty water. she got lots of attention from passers by... if only they knew what mick and i had just dealt with, they wouldn't be gushing about her cuteness!!! *_*
well it is back to reality and the mad rush to finish Christmas shopping and clean my house ready for the festivities to begin. oh and i have to catch up on all YOUR blogs. my birdies will be flying away tomorrow. Maxine is off to live in Sweden and Selena is off to Canada. i am sure they will be very happy.
i leave you with one last photo to prove that i was indeed on holidays and that i did wear my togs and did put my feet in water (actually i sat in it too!)
i hate photos of me especially self portraits but we had to do it to for memories sake. god, i look every bit of my 37 years!!
take care xxrosey
