The boys head back to school next week, so we thought we’d take the opportunity to head down the coast to Mollymook for the Australia Day long weekend for our last hurrah of the Summer holidays.
I was expecting it to be really busy with 80% of the rest of Canberra doing the same as us, but it really wasn’t bad at all. A pleasant surprise.
With the economy the way it is, we decided to take my little car rather than the family truckster, and save some money on petrol. I was sceptical at first…my little car (his name is Jeff) is …shall we say… very compact 🙂 and I didn’t know how he would cope being loaded up and asked to drive up steep winding mountain roads. But I was pleasantly surprised, Jeff was a trooper! He did so well!
In typical Australia Day fashion, the temperaure spiked in the high 30s and we sweltered on the beach, but the boys had an absolute blast body surfing and building sand forts. (we thought Shel had broken his thumb on Thursday, we were grateful that it was only a sprain and that he was able to surf and swim and have fun at the beach 🙂 )
How beautiful is the colour of the sky?? It was so nice to just sit and unwind and not have to do anything. I didn’t even have to cook! It was wonderful!
Did you do anything special this Australia Day?
