winter holiday 2015 – first stop

We have returned from a lovely week-long winter holiday in the south part of Western Australia, and I have plenty of pictures to share.

Let’s jump right in. :)

After going to confession and Mass Saturday morning, we hopped in our loaded car bound for temporary accommodation in Dunsborough.

Since we couldn’t check in until 2pm, we stopped for a picnic lunch on the grounds of Cape Naturaliste lighthouse, where we enjoyed dried fruit and nuts.

When they were done eating, the four older children picked a few wildflowers and pretended to be pirates.

The highlight of that stop was a giant Connect Four game, which they played boys vs girls.

None of the kids had encountered Connect Four before, but they quickly caught on.
