I'm b a a a c k!

Hello again....and apologies for being M. I. A.!
David, J and I decided to spontaneously jump on a flight to Queensland and try our hand at some R & R. Although we live in a holiday maker's paradise, downing tools in your own home is a feat we have NOT mastered, even when we have the best intentions!
Luckily, we have family who live on acreage in the magnificent Tallebudgera Valley. When we lived at Avoca Beach we loved their annual visit to us but this summer they generously provided us with everything we needed. Beautiful accommodation, stunningly pool, transportation and the very best inclusion; wonderful company for us all. (Including a same-age cousin for J to play with + sheep, dogs, chickens and peacocks to chase and bush to explore!) Heaven!

It's a hard day, drinking Coronas at 10 am on a pool float!
The 6 week age apart cousins re-bond first late night, watching...wrestling!? Eeek!

The big boy's daily ritual was of meeting the trawlers at 6 am and getting the freshest seafood for lunch and eating a 'breakfast' pie hot from the baker's first batch! (I sooo loved the sleep-ins!!!)
A tad of shopping was done - I wish this bronze by a local artist would fit in my luggage allowance of 10 kg!

Found some really inspiring multi media artwork too! Drool!
Getting a photo of J at Currumbin Bird Sanctuary to match ones Davo & I each have of us at a similar age.

Holidays mean real-estate stalking too! I love the part sand-blasted glass railing on this stunner at Flat Rock.

'Farm' inspiration! Could imagine ourselves here in a heart-beat!

Dining luxuriantly at another stunning locale!

What a view for breakfast!
We had such a great time away that we have already booked our return flights to celebrate my Sister-in-law's 50th birthday in six weeks time! 
Yee Ha!
