summer holidays are coming to an end but the days are only just heating up!

and here is the latest addition to the family.  after having to give up our pick up some time ago we are excited to have this 4×4 vehicle which has exceeded our expectations.

we are so happy to have a truck back to go exploring in, off road-ing, getting island inspired.

i am really not too sure who is happiest!

when thinking about capturing your family, consider the place you go to relax, the place you can be totally you.

thanks east coast

there may be a lot of sargassum seaweed around but i am convinced that it is helping the reef.  i have never seen so much animal and plant life on the reef.

and an epic game of monopoly was played.  i have never enjoyed monopoly, i hear you either love it or hate it.  but hearing these four play made me feel maybe i have not playing it right!  there was lots of action and laughter.
