Kidlette fun at Double Island Point

We're home from a wonderful 5 nights away camping up the beach at Double Island Point again.
It was amazing.  No electricity. No phone service.  Just great family times.
The kidlettes certainly weren't bored.  They were able to explore the area behind the camp.

You can do it Mum and Dad.  We run up it about 10 times a day so you can do it!
(..and yes it really is steep)

The view is pretty spectacular though.

There was lots and lots and lots of fun swimming and on the boogie boards...

...catching some waves...

...having fun with Dad...

...and getting a few blisters for the trouble... toast on the fire...

...and marshmallows of course...

...playing soccer with Dad....
...and throwing the frisbee around... certainly beats being at home watching tv.

 We also dug up quite a few pippi's which kept the kids occupied after I showed them how to find them.
There were a few quiet moments too.

All in all it was a fantastic 5 days away and I really, really, really didn't want to come home.

Rainy days.  Oh how blissful they were.  I love rain, especially at night lulling you to sleep as it falls on the tin roof.  Winter come soon...

Eggs of all descriptions.  Candied ones for my chocolate detesting girl.  Smashed to smithereens before I got the chance to look at them.

Chocolate for my boy.  Oh dear..the sugar hit.....  Breathe Mum.....

Croissants for breakfast.  A rare treat that starts the day off well.
Play time with the teenage boy next door.  We don't see him as much now as he got his licence a couple of months ago.  Getting dinner is a breeze when he's occupying the kidlettes with a game of hide and seek.  Spread over two houses and yards there's plenty of places to hide and have fun.
New friends made.  Two children have moved in across the road and are of about the same age as our two.  Lots more hide and seek and riding bikes and scooters.  It's lovely to see them play so well together.

Quiet craft time while it's raining and the kidlettes are watching movies/playing xbox.  These are moments to appreciate and enjoy.
...and having hubby  home for the rest of the school holidays.  Picnics and camping trips are planned. In fact we're off up the beach camping again tomorrow for 4 nights. Yay!
