holiday photos





hello!
thanku for the holiday wishes ~ it was great to get away!
we had a week at the beach and a week at my dad's place. the landscape pics are around dad + his wife's house and the beach is a particular place that i hadn't been for 20 years! i had been to the town quite a few times, but for some reason not the actual beach ~ my mother's ashes were scattered just here. it felt good to go there {i drove my dad's wife's 25 year old little car over the ranges}, but strangely, kind of like visiting other beaches! the surf was rough and unforgiving ~ the kind where you are either ankle deep or chest deep + being pulled in a few directions at once.

we also celebrated my birthday at the local pool {+ art gallery ~ another post!}. dad and i had a lot of fun on the water slide at the pool {i was re-living my primary school years!}. the boys had 1 go each on my lap . . . maybe they'll share my love of water slides next year :)

hoping that you had a fun easter!
i'm looking forward to catching up with some blog reading ~ 2 weeks away from the computer feels like 2 months!
:)
