I am very fortunate to have a wonderful big sister Victoria who loves to have me visit her in the school holidays, She patiently tolerates the chaos i and my six year old twins Olivia and Angelica bring to her home. We were able to share a few days with her and her daughter Isabella at a lovely beach house at Bendalong on the south coast, beautiful weather and lovely beaches,we enjoyed eating alfresco in the lovely garden and visting Victorias friend Jeannie and her family, kids had lots of fun. We then stopped at Bowral for the day and had a walk down memory lane, ( it was home for me and my family for 11 years and i miss it still ) but life is long and there are many paths to walk. had a nice relaxing time at my sisters for a week before we returned back to Griffith. here are some photos of our time.
