It was Australia Day on 26 January so we went away for a long weekend away.
Australia Day is the official National Day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson, New South Wales, and the raising of the Flag of Great Britain at Sydney Cove by Governor Arthur Phillip.
For this Australia Day we went to the central coast of Australia to a beautiful costal town named The Entrance. We had booked a holiday home with a pool as it is really hot these days in Sydney.
Altogether we had four families with 7 kids and we had a great time.
The first day we went to The Entrance town center had lunch and watched pelican being fed and stayed to let the kids play in the play area for a while.
From there we went to the holiday home in the evening and went straight to the pool which was so refreshing and kids love water too.
We spent a few hours swimming, playing water volley ball, chatting and drinking beer in the pool. Then it was dinner time so we cooked momo, had few drinks and played dumb charade. It has become our favorite game lately.
We stayed till late singing and dancing and finally decided to call it an night.
The next morning, we all woke up leisurely and decided that we would stay in for the day.
We had breakfast and went for a swim. It was a beautiful sunny day and we really enjoyed it.
One of our friends’ daughters had her birthday that weekend so we celebrated it with cakes and balloons which the kids loved. We feel so blessed to have so many nice people around.
We had BBQ for lunch and went back to the pool until it was dinner time. Dinner was once again so fun with so many people. We chatted, sang and danced.
The next morning, we left our beautiful holiday home and headed to Avoca beach.
The weather was great for a beach day. The sun was not too strong and the kids loved their time in beach building sand castles and playing in the water. We all enjoyed the last day of our holiday before driving back to Sydney.
Now I am eagerly waiting for our next holiday and getaway.
Have a great week everyone!
