The Great Aussie Holiday

Well, I've just completed my first week back at work and I have to say it was a bit of a shock to the system.

I know I only had 2 weeks off work, but I tend to get into the spirit of a holiday pretty darn quickly, so coming back to reality is not always pleasant.

This is a part of our little caravan park. As you can see, it is perfectly positioned right near the beach.

I know camping out in a caravan is not unique to Australia, but does any other country have caravan parks so close to the water?

A couple of old salts chewing the fat.... Grampy (MONT) and the little one

Kids like nothing better than crabbing in the shallows....and boy, I can honestly say I've never seen so many little crabs in one bucket! They sure outdid themselves.

A couple of their finds

These guys are trying to avoid the spotlight and finding a new hiding place.

I did a total "relax" while we were away. While I cooked a couple of meals and made lunch a few times, I did not wash one single dish or pot.

Now that's a holiday!

Please note, no critters were harmed during this crabbing expedition and all critters were returned to the water


  1. That looked like a really good break. It's so nice to be by the water when you are camping.

  2. It makes me want to take off to the beach!

  3. What a perfect spot for a caravan park - looks lovely, no wonder you found it hard getting back into the swing of things this week at work. Glad you were able to relax and enjoy your 2 weeks. We went away last week for a few days and I too said it was so nice not to have to cook or worry about housework. Enjoy your weekend x

  4. It looks and sounds like you had a wonderful holiday - glad you got a chance to relax. It has been a long time since I went to a caravan park - I think we'll have to do it next summer. :D

  5. Oh, lovely! You look like you had a wonderful time!

  6. Sounds like the perfect holiday


I love to hear your thoughts.
