Well, it was a farmers week, which means 4 1/2 days, but we got away!
When Son was little and the Twins were babies we holidayed in Robe, a little sea side town in South Australia. It is a very pretty place, both in summer and winter, with lovely beaches and many sights to see.
We dreamed of owning our own block of land, possibly with a tent and then maybe an old caravan, working up to a shed with lavatory and shower.
As we peered in the Real Estate windows we spotted a little cottage at Boatswains Point, we had never heard of the place!
Captain Boggles Tiger Moth Flights booking office was next store so we popped in to quiz him. Stroking his magnificent moustache he waxed lyrical of flying over the hidden coves, secluded beaches and tiny village that was Boatswains Point. Then he mentioned the magic phrase , it was cheap!
That was us hooked, we went for a drive and found our rather grubby looking cottage, we were in love!
''It's bigger than a caravan'.
It's a five minute walk to the beach, long enough to warm up for a swim on the way there and warm up again on the way back after a swim. We love it!
We chose a very vibrant colour scheme to disguise the sand. The apple green is so refreshing and the cobalt blue helps brighten up the seriously dodgey fittings.
One day we will 'fix' it up .....until then we enjoy it as it is!
The beach is usually quiet, you may get the odd fishermen, but that's it. The water is cool as a rule so the children swim in wetsuits, this keeps them warmer and helps with buoyancy while snorkeling.
|Fab Four having fun!|
|Don't you love brothers!|
Son & Heir spent a lot of time snorkeling, there are lots of little fish and crabs close to the shore.
The twins swam, boogie boarded and generally larked about. I couldn't tell them apart in the water!
It was all too much for Little One, she slept in the shade of a friendly fisher mans boat.
|We had a ball! (he he)|
