Port Fairy

I got back from Bangkok just in time to join everyone on a holiday down at the beach. It’s the middle of winter here so this was more of a “look at the beach from the vantage point of a wood fire” kind of beach holiday.

The Beach House

We stayed in a great house just outside of Port Fairy, called Bluestone Bay. It comes highly recommended by the people at Where Is Sarah? It was huge, warm, had a great kitchen and totally comfy couches. But the best bit was the view:

The weather was lovely for most of the trip. After a few days of mild, sunny weather there was a bit of rain. Which obvs means….

Puddles!

Venturing further afield

One day we decided to go for a walk to the lighthouse, then we realised that the lighthouse was a few kms further than any kid was interested in. But we went for a wander anyway. The weather was great and the kids were happy to go climbing on mildly dangerous rocks along the coastline.

After a week of taking turns to babysit the twins inside the house (a great way to ensure an afternoon nap by the fire), Jess decided it was their turn to go for a walk along the beach.

Eventually it was time to leave Bluestone Bay.

Before we go home...we have to make at least one freezing sandcastle

The others headed back to Melbourne to resume work/school/regular life, while MJ and I headed in the opposite direction for another few days, but I’ll save those photos for tomorrow.

    I’m wondering what the website means by “European cooker”. I’ve never heard of one before. Is it one that speaks to you in French as it cooks your casserole and offers to play the complete works of J. S. Bach while recommending snorkling holidays amongst sun-drenched Greek islands with miles of golden beaches untouched by the callous hand of brute industrialism? Perhaps not.

    I seriously need a vacay. Unfortunately, it seems as if it will never happen. Heading straight back into my program, and have classes lined up for myself during the interims!!!
