And for every child on the beach that day
stands a castle tall and proud ~ Sand Castles, Elvis Presley
What bliss to wake up to the sound of rain and be snug and warm in bed, home from holidays. It has been amazing weather these past few days - rain, wind and cold that even stopped me walking to school today. This rain, so long unseen, is definitely soothing to the soul. I can hear the garden, veges, neighbours and schoolfriends all heave a sigh of welcome relief.
For the most part of our holiday the weather was delicious - warm and sunny, yet not at all hot.
We spent most of our time playing on the beach digging and building, having sandcastles stomped upon and chasing a certain little offender up towards the dunes amidst cries of laughter and swirls of girly giggles upon her capture. Our new walker looked on with eager learning eyes and continued her dig, dig, digging and castle pushing!
In the afternoon, little Eee slept while we painted shells into sweet little critters. This was inspired both by Ess' Princess Poppy: Fun and Games - A Colouring and Activity Book and our friend Bella with her rock painting...
and more castles...
Goolwa Beach delighted us all, day by day.
See you tomorrow with a few more holiday pics as I slowly regain my composure for writing.
This weather does not combine at all well with the mountains of washing we brought home. I'm swamped in the chinese laundry our home now appears to be. :)
