Winter’s Day at the Beach

August 13, 2013 § Leave a comment














We try regularly to have “Family Days” – where we all squeeze into the 4wd and head off on an adventure. They don’t happen as often as I would like, simply due to the logistics of getting swimmers, towels, food, car activities, and other paraphernalia ready for seven people. Sometimes it is just too overwhelming. And some weekends we just need to hang out at home after a week of busy-ness.

But in the recent Winter school holidays we made it up to Palm Beach on a Friday and almost had the beach to ourselves. I’d found a mini cricket bat in the garage and the boys and Sol had much fun playing  beach cricket. Robin kept crawling towards the waves. Zara entered her nature-spirit zone and just pranced around talking to the ocean. Lily tried to play cricket and be like the boys. I played cricket, then fed Robin and read a book. Sometimes, breastfeeding provides the excuse to do little things like that which are just for me.
