So the drive over was a bit stressful I think mainly due to my son not listening to us when we asked him to be quiet or stop doing something. After our stop about halfway we made another two stops, one toilet and one food before we reached our destination, got out the car and breathed a big sigh of relief before opening a well-deserved bottle of beer.
Also the kids took off to explore and there was certainly plenty of room for them to play in.
The house in the photo below that has the white roof in the distance is where we were based.
We setup camp and organised where everyone would be sleeping. We had a camper trailer and presumed all the kids would be sleeping there with us but it turned out the boys got a caravan and the girls got the house (there were other kids there) and we got the camper trailer to ourselves. It just meant we got some more privacy and a few more minutes sleep in.
Before it got dark we set off to the sand dunes nearby with boogie boards in hand to slide down the hills.
The first hill to climb was the steepest and therefore the hardest requiring hands and feet to climb up.
But it was more smooth sailing after that.
And even though it was a bit cold, windy and even a bit of rain, it was just beautiful up there.
This is about the only photo of me that my camera took below. When I wasn’t taking photos I had it stuffed down my top because of the wind/sand factor. My camera probably needs a good clean now.
After the sand dunes we organised dinner and then it was time to sit around the fire and relax. The boys took themselves off to bed probably because they were really tired and because they had the caravan to themselves.
That left the adults sitting around the fire having a few drinks and a really good laugh. I love a campfire.
We had an even bigger fire the next night.
