This past weekend had a relaxed feel about it, we all took some time for rest and rejuvenation following a whirlwind of a January. My dad had been rushed into hospital for emergency surgery so it was a bit stressful for a few days mid month with all this taking place unexpectedly. The following two weekends saw us with some of our regular kids having respite care with us, so it was a hive of activity, going to the movies, board games, bush walks and a little crafting too.
Sunday was all about enjoying the day, from the smell of mowed grass, to the clouds passing overhead and the birds happily bathing. I was so relaxed it had me dreaming of the beach on one of our favorite holiday destinations Boambee on the Coffs Coast. We didn't make it there in person but I did escape there with my Pan Pastels for a wee few hours.

On Boambee Creek you'll find the Boambee Nature Reserve, a very tranquil spot with calm water, lots of sheltered picnic areas, a cafe and great playground, all of which is just perfect for kids and adults alike. It's just a short stroll around the headland to the surf.
You can take a kayak out on the water or play in the sand, and it was between these two sand dunes in my artwork above that we spent many a hour building sandcastles on our last visit there.
