We escaped for a 5 day break at the beach.
Although there is Internet access at our friends' house, I decided to have a bit of a break from screens and see if I could go sort of 'off grid'
Of course, I didn't really go off grid at all....
But I did cook, eat and and drink a lot!
We went on lots of long walks and perved attractive beach houses. I love the one above.
I wish I could go and have a good look inside it....
D, aged 8, made this cake almost all by himself:
It was very delicious indeed!
J and G (the older boys in the house) enjoyed manly pursuits such as chopping wood and behaving like pyromaniacs.
I had to hide the axe (named 'the Pope') under the bed after a certain number of beers had been consumed, for OH&S purposes.
I'm pleased to say that there were no injuries.
Dinner was cooked over a home made Hibachi:
The fruits of the boys' chopping labour:
The fire and the hibachi:
I actually went swimming! The weather was a warm 27 degrees, so I braved the surf for about 1 minute!
The water was freezing!!
Sadly, we're now back home and I'm back at work. J and the kids are on hols for another 10 days and I am not a little jealous....
Hope you had a good weekend.
Any adventures or travels?
