Holidays (and my 100th POST!!!)

Holidays


The holiest of all holidays are those

Kept by ourselves in silence and apart;

The secret anniversaries of the heart,

When the full river of feeling overflows;-

The happy days unclouded to their close;

The sudden joys that out of darkness start

As flames from ashes; swift desres that dart

Like swallows singing down each wind that blows!

White as the gleam of a receding sail,

White as a cloud that floats and fades in air,

White as the whitest lily on the stream,

These tender memories are;- a Fairy Tale

Of some enchanted land we know not where,

But lovely as a landscape in a dream.

Longfellow









Yes, we have just had 2 wonderful days away visiting my family at the Sunshine Coast, and Stuart's family in Brisbane. Walks on the beach, a birthday lunch feast (wow, what food!!), an afternoon concert staring the children's Grandpa up in the mountains...........
Lots of hours driving, but what wonderful little travellers we have!


I love my family, I adore holidays....... and I'm oh so thankful our car made it there and home again. ;)

I am so glad you got the chance to getaway. Life always seems brighter when you leave everyday routine behind.

Glad you had a safe trip! I'm feeling homesick for the sunshine coasts beaches now! - I really miss the beach - especially now as the weather warms up a bit. Gorgous pictures!

If the car does break down there's always the option to pile everyone on the scooter. Make sure you get a photo if that ever happens!
