More Sun and Sand and a little bit of surf, anybody…?

Further to my last post, here are some more pics from our last family holiday! No kids this time – just the sand, a little bit of surf and some other stuff!

When the crowds disappear, the expanse of beach seems endless.

And one for my girls, who are massive One Direction fans….;-)

Sun, Sand & Family Fun

It’s so cold in Sydney at the moment… Winter has really hit with a vengeance! So I’m hoping that these pics let you picture warm sea breezes, sun and summer to take the edge off the cold – even though they are black and white!!

So just a few pics tonight of my three girls on our family trip to the Gold Coast, Queensland enjoying some quality ‘sister time’ at the beach.

Caitlin wanted to run with her big sisters, but was a little reserved with all that water!

So much sand, and sooo much fun!

This beautiful country – the first instalment

Well, I have been very slack with blogging of late. With the death of my father-in-law, young children, running a business and household and setting up a new website for the business, one has not been left much time for anything else!

In some of my past blogs, I have mentioned we recently (not recently anymore!) took a trip to country NSW. I won’t say much more and will let the images speak for themselves throughout the instalments, but this country of ours is one beautiful country and we are blessed to live in it.


Weekly Photo Challenge: (Refuge)

Aside from my own photographic challenge of posting an image a week by interpreting a random dictionary word into an image (which I have not done from last week as we were away!), I will be attempting to participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge run by The DailyPost at as well!

This week’s word – Refuge.

A little while ago, my family and I went to a wildlife park in Sydney which has an awesome array of native Australian animals – Featherdale Wildlife Park.

For the international readers out there, this is a Wombat. Click here to read more about one of Australia’s cutest little marsupials!

It – not sure if it was a he or a she! –  was seeking refuge from the heat of the day in a hollow log. Lucky for me ‘it’ couldn’t get comfortable, so I got to capture both ends!

The front end!
The back-end!
