Holiday Snaps...

Well, we're finally back from our seaside holiday. Thank you so much to everyone who left a message and sent good wishes for Henry's speedy recovery - it was a very scary couple of days. I think the sea air must have done him some good though as he was given a clean bill-of-health by the doctor when we got back a couple of days ago.

School holidays feel very long this year (this is only our second year so only 14 years to go!) but it has given us a chance to have two beach getaways so far - to Phillip Island over Christmas (where we saw the pelicans above) and then after the hospital stay to Barwon Heads where we spent a week with my two younger sisters and their families.

The time spent with my sisters was wonderful beyond words. We haven't had a beach holiday together since we were kids and of course life has taken us in very different directions since then. Rachel has made a permanent seachange while Angela has been living in San Francisco for many years now. For the past few years we've only seen Angela in the context of funerals and bedside vigils so it was lovely to be able to spend some stress-free time with her and her young family. In fact seeing all the little ones together was one of the best things about the holiday...


  1. Welcome back Caz. It sounds (and looks) like you had the best holiday ever....

  2. Welcome back from your holiday - I love your snaps! :)
    It's wonderful to have some time to come together with loved ones.

    Pelicans are one of my favourite type of birds.

  3. I'm so glad you had a good time, Caz! And I love that pelican picture - gorgeous!

  4. Thanks guys. We did have a lovely time and it's reminded me how important it is to get away once in a while. We never go on holidays so I think one of my New Year's resolutions should be more mini-breaks!

    Glad you like the pelicans too!
