Sand + Sunburn = Summer

Posted by MANDI at 9:35 PM
We took a day trip up to Moore River with a neighbour family, setting out early and arriving home a little over 12 hours later, and spent the day in the boat. And despite several applications of sunscreen, the wearing of hats and rashies and the shade tent being up we still managed to end the day with sand through everything and varying degrees sunburn.

Here are the kids, totally over-excited and ready to party at six thirty this morning. 

Well, to say in the boat would be exaggerating - we spent some time cruising up and down the river and a whole heap more time playing in the river, climbing huge sandhills, enjoying a picnic lunch and having lots of fun.

Moore River, or Guilderton as the town is really called, is about an hour and a half away - perfect for a weekend getaway but also doable for a day trip. It's a quiet little town on the coast and the river is separated from the ocean by a sizeable sand bar.

The river is lovely - clean, calm and with a nice low speed restriction for river traffic so it's perfect for a quiet day in the boat. I took heaps of photos but Blogger isn't letting me load them all so I've just put a few up. I'm a bit sad about that as I managed to get a whole bunch of really lovely pics of Offspring #1. Normally it's #2 hogging the camera and being pretty so I was really pleased to get some of my boy. I'll try to post them later in the week.

Great pics! I so hope we get a summer this year, too... At least we have no real winter, what a relief!

I love Moore River! I haven't been there for 5 years though. Really must go back soon.
