Day Trippin’

Jetty BeachI have finally found my Christmas groove!  After the chaos of Christmas shopping last week, I loaded the kids in the car nice and early on Saturday morning and caught the 9:30am ferry to Bruny Island.  My sister’s and brother-in-law were camping at Jetty Beach on South Bruny which provided a perfect day trip.  Nick decided to stay at home and have a ‘sleep-in’ after his work drinks on Friday night.

I love day trips!  The anticipation of getting out of the house, packing up all your bits and bobs that you need for travelling with wee ones and selecting the perfect driving tunes.  My music genre has changed somewhat since I have two backseat drivers now and find Playschool and Frozen are often on high rotation!

We had a perfect drive to South Bruny, marvelling at the beautiful landscape and belting out a few nursery rhymes!  We got into camp, had a cuppa and then ventured to the superb beach where Pops and James played for hours.  A long walk and more cups of tea, I was back on the 5:30pm ferry with two sun-kissed, exhausted kids.  It was a perfect escape from the pre-Christmas craziness.

On Sunday we had lunch with Nick’s parents on their boat at Triworks – a quick trip from Hobart.  Nick and Poppy jumped in for a swim, we ate beautiful food and enjoyed the balmy conditions.  xx
