our family life, our way

Snapshots of a few days away

on September 27, 2014

We headed back to our old stomping ground for a few days so we could catch up with friends and family and because the kids miss their friends too. We stayed in a 100 year old beach house that we have booked before, with plenty of room for us to spread out and be comfortable. Mr 18 stayed here in Scone due to work commitments, which was handy as it meant we didn’t have to get the mail held or organise for the dog to be fed and it meant there was someone actually staying here in the house.

Some photos of our time away:

1. Memorial wall at Kiama, they had just finished it and removed the barriers when we took this pic.

15. Opa’s ground. Ray’s Dad. Been gone 10 years this Dec.


16. Opa’s plaque. The next four plots along were names that we recognised. I photographed them too but haven’t put them on here as they are not my family.

That is just a fraction of our time away. We were busy living it, not so much taking photos of it. And what a fabulous and relaxing time it was.
