Christmas Day treat

Sun 25th December 2011

It’s our first Christmas in Australia! Yay! This morning we took a short trip to Pottsville Beach which is minutes from Min’s Grandparents place.

Well this is a different view compared to my usual Christmas. Walking along the beach on the 25th of December, it certainly didn’t feel like Christmas! Stunning beaches all along the east of Australia. Beach for as far as the eye could see!

This beach was deserted. The waves were 2 or 3 metres high too, the result of the Cyclone off the East Coast of Australia. Walking on the beach? The best Christmas pressie ever!

 

It’s not Christmas with that view!

It really doesn’t feel like Christmas with a view like that. We’re staying with a friend of a friend for a couple of days until Christmas Eve. As you can see it’s right next to the beach!

Secret santas

Mon 19th December 2011

This afternoon we attended a Christmas BBQ and pool party. There was a lot of meat, a lot of presents and a lot of splashing in the pool.

I look a little bit hung over in this photo, I had a horrible journey over to the BBQ. I wasn’t feeling too well! All self inflicted. The BBQ helped out though, lots of meat and presents!

Christmas in the heat…was too hot to even wear these hats but the BBQ food made up for it, mmm.

 

Festive cheer

Fri 16th December 2011

There was a huge Christmas tree in one of the shopping malls we visited, so Matt got arty and decided to take my photograph through the bauble.

If you look closely you can see Claire smiling back at you (and me taking the photo).

Christmas decor

Fri 16th December 2011

There are Christmas decorations everywhere in Melbourne. A strange sight when it’s 30 degrees outside! We don’t feel festive at all, so seeing them is always a bit of a surprise.

Matt says...

I must admit I don’t feel Christmassy at all. It’s just too hot! I’m used to wearing gloves and freezing my butt off on a train platform before work!
