sun, surf and sand




I love our annual beach trip. When my friends and I all pack our bags during the last warm week of the season; to soak up enough of it to last us for the next six months. I love hearing the sound of the waves as we pull up to the coast house that is so familiar now. I love drinking cider and talking about nothing and everything around a campfire. I love lazy days, filled with sun, sand, scrabble, and all the episodes of Skins. I love feeling sick from eating junk food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love playing in the surf half an hour after I open my eyes in the morning. I love trying to body-surf with friends, though none of us can really swim. I love the in-jokes, the laughter and the late night conversation.

I love heading back to Canberra on a Sunday evening; sun kissed, exhausted and happy.

I love the beach bum photo. It reminds me of something you would have found in a 50's LIFE magazing. So cute.

sounds awesome...what a lovely getaway. i love hitting the beach the first thing in the morning too. there's something about the shock to the senses that it gives you that is so breathtaking.

This sounds like the best time ever! Summer is just approaching here, and I am so looking forward to beach bonfires and late summer nights. Though, you haven't much to be jealous of, Australia isn't exactly cold in the "winter " ;)
