Christmas 2009

We had a week and bit off work this Christmas, just the week between Christmas and New Years, more than enough time to recharge the batteries. Time was spent hanging with family and a few days at Beachport and Robe.

Kym had a few drinks

Christmas was split over a week this year, with my family all heading off in all directions this year, so a nice lunch was had up at dads, bit of pool time, a few wines, very relaxing time indeed. I did have a laugh at the conversation that I had with my sibblings about the fact that we hadnt had a decent arguement at a christmas show for a while, if ever. So we sat around all afternoon working out what we could argue about......nup, got nothing! I think this is what I like most about my family, never any issues too big to simply talk it over.....I love them all!

I got Richard this nice handbag, suits him dont you think.

Kym got me this awesome Stand Up Paddle board for Christmas, I am so lucky to get such a sweet present, its already got a big work out, cant wait to put a sail on it in marginal conditions - I am also lucky to have such a great wife!

Phoebe and her friend Lilli at Semaphore...'If ya need'

After the Christmas break we headed down to Beachport with Kyms mum and dad, stayed in this lovely little cottage just off the main street, I have to say this was one of the most relaxing 4 days I have ever had, there was lots of beach time, chillin with Trev, sailing on Lake George and a SUP and sail session at Robe at 3rd ramp.

Dad with his newst cutest grandson, Xavier, cuteness personified!

I like this photo of dad

although I am not sure about this shirt with pink fishing rod? Not sure how the residents of Beachport too to this?
Fiona, Kym and Nathan, looks like todays walk on the Beachport Jetty was sponsored by Billabong

Mitcham council also has a lot to learn about tree trimming, this one up in Blackwood looks as though it was done late on a Friday, I am sure it will recover.
