Creating family memories
I've set up my blog for posting from my mobile phone (not sure how good that will be) and I'll have my laptop - but you know how it is, I may post and I may not. It's going to be a little bit of a culture shock not to be posting every day but hubby is a little bit funny (and not the ha ha kind of funny) about electronics and blogging and the amount of time the boys and I 'waste'. Besides my focus will be on family time.
Fishing, boating, swimming, relaxing - yeah someone has to do it. I'm sure that I will have plenty of photos to share.
Here's a sample of where we will be going and what we will be doing over the next week, firstly we'll head south from Adelaide and down the coast...
Kingston - the first stop we will make is Kev's Tractor Collection (hubby has an obsession with tractors - well all machinery actually, so no escaping this place no matter how much I wish we could) But this should put hubby in a nice mellow mood for the remainder of the journey - it's the only place he really, really wants to visit.
Then in Mt Gambier we will visit the Blue Lake - yes, it really is meant to be as blue as the pictures show, something to do with calcium carbonate and warming of the layers - I'm sure I'll learn more when I visit. It's a lake located within several extinct volcanic craters.
and we'll visit the Princess Margaret Rose Caves
and we will visit everything in between and along the way. There's meant to be plenty of rock pools, caves, beaches, lakes and national parks, so I'm super excited. I'm almost tempted to phone the boss and say I might be a little longer on holidays. It's only me that has to be back for work on the 11th, the rest of the family will still be on holidays. Not too well planned that one
From Mt Gambier then we'll head north to the Riverland and Renmark and have a 'belated Christmas' with my family. Yes mum I'm coming, we're just taking the scenic, long route to get there.
So the next week is about family time, relaxation and the great outdoors. Three of my favourite things in the whole world. Hope you have a sensational start to the New Year and as Arnie famously once said 'I'll be back', just not sure when.
