Us, December

We have visitors in the shape of my Mum and Stepdad for Christmas.  They have arrived amidst a shocking bout of weather that has been the start of the Sydney summer.  Yesterday for Christmas the clouds cleared, the temperature rose to a heady 27 and we opened presents, had a quick lunch and then spent a fabulous couple of hours at the beach with friends.  The lagoon water at Long Reef was bath like in temperature and Finn & Isla had their goggles and put them to good use looking for fish and in fact any marine life!

We have also camped at Jervis Bay again which was fab fun - I am such a camping convert, I truly think it's the best way to see the real Australia and all of it's wonderful wildlife.  We can add to our 'spotted' list possums and lots of them now.  In fact they walked in and around our camping pitch!
