Christmas holiday

I have just returned from 12 days away up at Tuncurry on the mid-north coast of NSW. Hubby was able to come away for only 5 days of this so K. and her Granny and I stayed on for the extra days, which included a visit from K's cousins for a couple of days.

We spent much time at the beach (as did everyone else in town), had lots of walk (most of them at the beach) and ate lots of yummy food.

But I'm glad to be home.

Now it's time to start getting things ready for K. to start school in a couple of weeks, to put together the second newsletter for the Blacktown Arts & Crafts Group, and to do lots of painting as there are a few shows coming up in Feb and March.

Here are some pics from the holiday (no painting pics or crafty pics as I had a little break from that too)...


Seen on our first early morning walk to collect fresh bread and the papers



A group of kids built this great sand castle, only for a little pest
to come along and knock it down in the few minutes they were away from it



One of the many and varied dogs we saw on our travels. K loves dogs
so we had to ask to pat every one we saw


 
Just a 'few' people at the Rock Pool


 
We had some great weather, mixed in with some overcast days - 
but that was okay as it gave us an excuse to laze around reading and playing


 
Even the bad weather days were  fine enough to be out walking and
collecting shells on the beach



I love these beach paths down to 9 Mile Beach, so did K!
