Me with the girls during our weeks break on Philip Island. Katarina, Annalina and Asta.
|My husband, Lewis, and the girls looking at a very large jellyfish down at the bay.|
They live just a 5 minute walk from Port Philip Bay. This was the view as we walked the dogs and the girls had a swim at 7pm. It was taken in the couple of weeks before the holiday makers arrived in their droves! Most of the year they have the pleasure of uncrowded beaches. It is quite beautiful and if you look across the bay you can see the tall buildings of Melbourne.

We enjoyed a day out at Sovereign Hill, a very old open air mining town that has been transformed into a museum. This is Anna (Annalina) prospecting for gold! Kat found 2 tiny specks and now has them in a little jar.
This is just one of the most beautiful Bird of Paradise flowers that are blooming in their front garden.
The four together for a rare 'civilised' photo! from l-r is Asta age 8, Anna age 11, Kat age 12 (13 in March) and Soren age 14.
One of the beautiful sunrises we enjoyed most mornings.
Asta decorating her chocolate gingerbread house.
I spent ages trying to get a group photo of them sitting in the hammock but the dogs kept wandering into the picture at the wrong time which highly amused the children!
|And finally, our lovely daughter, Esther and our equally lovely son in law, Carl.|
