Loving the beach!

Hello,

We are mid-way through February and I’ve still not told you about January!! I had better get a move on, otherwise the month will be out!

January for me means a month of trips to the beach, to the country and preparing for going back to school. This January was no exception. I was snap-happy with so much texture, pattern and colour all about!

We went to Burleigh beach on the Gold Coast, a bit over an hour from Brisbane. The surfers were out, the kids with buckets and spades were building sandcastles and splashing in the waves!

Headland-Lilibet StanleyThe children liked exploring the rocks when the tide was low so they could look in all the rockpools and try to get around the headland.

I have so many more photos to share from my gallivanting around Queensland.

See you next time.

Lilibet.
