I’ve never slept in a camper trailer before and apart from having to negotiate a smallish ladder it was a good experience even with the occasional rain during the night.
We were awoken the next morning by one of the kids banging on a drum – it was Anzac Day after all – but we lay in bed for a while even though we were awake. We could hear the kids running around and knew that they’d be having a great time.
Sunday was spent relaxing, and getting the ingredients together for a huge bonfire. The big boys went surfing and the rest of us went to the beach. It wasn’t really a swimming beach so even though I was wearing bathers I didn’t go in. Later on we also had another sand dunes session. It’s very good exercise and works wonders wearing the kids out.
I love the swirling smoke in the picture below not long after the bonfire was lit. Unfortunately all the marshmallows had been used up the night before.
I could just sit there and watch a bonfire for ages. It didn’t take long before we all moved in a bit closer after it died down a bit.
Before we knew it Monday morning rolled around and we had to pack up and drive home. Our lovely host took the kids off to the sand dunes again while we packed up – bless him.
Fortunately the drive home was much more pleasant and quiet as the kids were pretty exhausted. They even slept for a while which was just blissful for us.
Well we survived our first trip away and he’s joining myself and JJ for our trip to Bali in June which is very exciting.
