January & February 2014

Hi all,
Well the year started off quiet, Dave & I even got to take a drive down south & Check out A few beaches. The weather was pretty yuk though so pictures aren't that great.

We saw these really unusual birds nests in a tree & there were dozens of them: 
Couldn't really see what kind of birds they were though.

Dave & I also decided to mulch our Garden Beds - Wow that turned out to be a huge job! We got a 6 cubic metre load delivered while Dave was home, then I had to get another one delivered after he went back to work - & do it by myself!!!! But the garden looked great when it was finished:)

 Australia Day weekend was next & I went down to Kurramine Beach Resort With a friend from work - Silvana & her twin daughters

We had a really good weekend, but when we got back home there was a Cyclone brewing off the Coast. We didn't get any damage but it was a King Tide as well & poor Etty Bay Beach got hit big time:
It made quite a mess
February Dave & I flew over to Perth to see the girls, it had been about 6 months since we saw them last.
we had a lovely lunch with Bec & dinner with Teigz & Aaron



Then we got to all catch up together for a picnic with precious little Ruby:
Ruby telling Poppy bubbles are more important then lunch!

I want Mummy!

 We took some photos of Mandurah:
Dawesville Cut

Marina Apartments

War Memorial

Sunset on the Foreshore

But of course the highlight of our trip was seeing little Ruby:

Cool dude in Nanna's sunnies

Beautiful Girl!

We also got the chance to catch up with our friends Jas, Jo, Jacob & Isabelle - can't believe I didn't take any photos while we were there :( But anyway their big news is that they have sold up & are moving back to Denver USA!!! - Guess we will just have to go visit them over there :)

Well that's all for now - nearly up to date. I think I will try to do this monthly to keep on top of it.
Cheers & Happy Travels




  1. Hey Shell ad Dave. Yep I know what it is like to be behind. Good to hear from you again. WE are in Sydney at the moment doing the family thing. We left the RetroLiner at Mudgee, and will be returning on Sunday to continue the adventure. I have the facility of Wifi at the moment so I will bring our blog up to date. Good to see you and Dave are looking well, and of course a handsome couple. Keep in touch you two. Cheers P & W xx
