putting up the tent
it seems like a distant memory now and yet we've been back less than 24 hours.
it was a fantastic spot to camp - especially in summer
there was a pool for the kids and a fantastic playground - so they were never bored!
we caught up with friends on our first night - it was cold and blowy but we managed to have fish and chips at the beach and have a play in the water - well, the kids played whilst we adults stayed as warm as possible.
we saw the beach in so many guises - it's hard to capture it's true beauty but there was rain in the distance by the hills and yet the water in front of us was beautifully blue.
we had a little paddle but it was a bit cold and we weren't really prepared for swimming.
our campsite - louis took this photo in the early evening after dinner. that's david and me sitting to the left - relaxed after dinner.
we took a stroll up this path one evening, to go kangaroo spotting. we saw at least three kangaroos - one baby too.
can you see it? i know it's a bit dark but there is definately a kangaroo there and he is staring right at you!
our campsite was just across the road from the aldinga conservation park which you had to go through to get to the beach. it was a leisurely 15 minute stroll, marred only by the flies. we found this tree branch that had obviously come down and had started growing where it lay - amazing really.
ahhh - camp food - fried sandwiches made with homegrown tomatoes - nothing better after a long walk!
early morning - still waking
a breakfast of french toast - mmmmmm
the boys didn't realise they liked french toast!
day three - our last day :(
we packed up camp and headed for the beach. the kids were very excited to be able to drive onto the beach!
that's us in there - the waves were great for body surfing and jumping (note to self, must take boogy boards next time).
and here we are, tired but exhilarated! it was so much fun in there.
the holiday was great - it used to be a bit of a hassel having to pack everything to go camping, but the more you do it, the better you get at it - so it becomes second nature.
everytime we go away, i swear i am going to do it again sooner - it's great for the soul.
