A Lovely Day with Family

This week is my younger daughter's 30th birthday. Wow that time has flown by!
I made her a triple layer sponge cake, choc, vanilla, choc and we devoured half of it this morning ... Yum
DH and I had the pleasure of looking after her little one this weekend while she and her DH (also 30 this year) were out and about at one of the many other 30th birthday celebrations they are attending this year.
They arrived last night to collect the little lady. They stayed the night with us and then we all spent the day touring some of our nearby coast.
First we drove through Inverloch and on to Cape Paterson where we knew there were some lovely rock pools for the little lady to play in.

There was sand at the bottom of this rock pool, nice and soft underfoot

Then we drove through Wonthaggi and on along the coast to Kilcunda where we stopped at the pub with it's lovely view of Bass Strait and the high-cliffed surf beaches

We sat on the verandah outside the pub and ate our meals in the lovely sunshine, cooled by the ocean breeze.

DD had seafood pasta, Son-in-law had a paella, DH had a burger and I had an ENORMOUS chicken pie. All the meals were delicious.
Family times are so precious and such treasured memories in the making.


  1. Seems like a lot of wonderful people were born in March (my DD too) Lovely post...such a beautiful part of the world down your way. That lunch looked very tasty. I was also salivating over that cake.

  2. I agree, family is so important. Aren't we lucky to have grandchildren.
