Weekend at the beach

In March, for our wedding anniversary, we decided to go for an overnight at the beach to celebrate and to spend quality time together as a family before Garth went away for work again.

Even though we were barely there 24hrs, it was such a lovely trip. Setting up camp just on the edge of the sand so we could enjoy the scenery without having to leave our site (which was particularly lovely in the evening after the kids had gone to sleep, watching the lights reflecting on the water while grounding our feet in the sand with a glass of wine in hand).

Reminding me again of the importance of making time to get away from the ever growing list of jobs to do and just to sit and be with those that you love.

Exploring new places

Hollydeen 10 These delightful sunny winters days are the best. It’s the perfect reason to get out and about and make it extra special by exploring somewhere new that you’ve never been before.  Hollydeen 1 On Saturday we decided to take Garth’s mum, who was visiting, for a drive. It was far too beautiful weather to stay inside. We decided to go to Denman for breakfast at Tartuka, a cafe that serves yummy coffee and Italian food. Then we wandered up the street to visit the local markets and peruse the many craft and food stalls. Hollydeen 5 Hollydeen 2 Hollydene has been on our ‘must visit list’ for quite some time. Seeing as though we were enjoying the day and soaking up the sunshine we decided it was the perfect occasion to visit and try it out. It had such a great atmosphere filled with lots of happy chatter from other diners who were out enjoying their leisurely Saturday afternoon like ourselves. Looking out over the vineyards as we enjoyed our delicious meals I couldn’t help but notice the cute chairs scatted around the manicured lawns just begging to be sat on while enjoying a coffee, I think we might need to plan another visit soon and make that happen. Hollydeen 3 Hollydeen 7 Hollydeen 4 Hollydeen 8 Hollydeen 6 I am so grateful for the wonderful area that we live. It continues to amaze me the beautiful places that surrounds us.

Have you explored somewhere new recently? Did you enjoy the experience? Hollydeen 9I best go clean my camera lens right away! Clear blue skies can make the dirty specks really stand out!
