random holiday shots

It has been a week since we returned from out beach holiday and I am only just now getting around to posting!
Trying to get back into a routine and getting the kids organised and back into schoolwork while VCH works on a house project in his last couple of weeks off.

So I thought I would share some random shots from our holiday.
 Crabs caught and eaten - yum!

 Fish caught by B5- not so many fish this year, but we did manage a lovely fish meal in the 2nd week.

 Rough surf and lots of clouds and showers throughout the first week
 Buried driftwood to make trees again.
B5 thought it would be a great lookout

 Or perhaps he could be a bird?

 The Girl of course had to have a turn too!


 Spotting a ship out to sea.

 Sand art- VCH specialty.

B4 thought he might do a portrait of DAD

 Clearer skies but those clouds were still hanging around.

 On an adventure to some nearby beaches on my birthday.
(NB to self- don't smile big you can see wrinkles)

 A family of coastal emus spotted on a headland on adventure.
Five kids and their dad.
Here is an article that pictures a family of emus in the same area back in October- wonder if they are the  same ones?

We arrived back on The Girl's 6th birthday.
I wasn't feeling well, after eating some stuff I shouldn't have, and for the first time ever I didn't make the birthday cake.
B1 grabbed a mudcake from Woollies on his way home from work.

So now we are back and I have some finds and projects to share with you- soon I promise!


  1. Great to hear a little of your holiday adventures. Looking forward to hearing more of your finds and projects.

  2. Just beautiful !!! Love all the pictures.. YOUR family is so beautiful .. love that ocean sister...LOVE LOVE LOVE IT ...........Hugs and blessings..........Sherry @ The Rusty Pearl

  3. it looks like a gorgeous, natural place. i've heard of it but haven't been there.
    the photo of the emus is fantastic!

  4. Looks like great fun was had by all! x

  5. I was wondering where you were! Looks like a wonderful, relaxing family holiday, and what a lovely shot of you with the kids.....we all know how hard that is to herd them all together for a photo, especially with a larger number of them! xx

  6. I'm sure she wouldn't have known the difference. Or though with your cooking perhaps she did.

    Family holidays are certainly the best of times too.

  7. Looks like you guys had a fabulous time! Sorry to hear you got sick :(
