Things Wot Was Caught And Then Eaten

As part of 'Going Bush' the boys turned into hunter/ gatherers.

Dave's genius extends to catching marron with nothing but a twig and some speaker wire.

Bloody good eating, that!

Then Dave and Steve found these buggers when fishing off Busselton Jetty. Dave (innocently?) asked Steve to get the sea beasties into a bucket but said beasts were not happy about that.

Steve re-appeared from t'underside of the jetty dripping in viscous, slimy ink courtesy of Mr Squid.

We got our own back though. Tasted right bloody nice!

Note To Self....

....Never leave candles to sit in the sunshine.

Especially when the temperature reaches 41 degrees.

We're off to the beach for a swim, a barbie and a few beers. Happy Australia Day

Cheap Wine And A Three Legged Goat

Otherwise known as Tipsy Tina's Topsy Turvy Tasting Tour....

For a blissful ten days we found ourselves living amidst the vines of Margaret River in our South West. So obviously we were unable to avoid the many many wineries on offer.

Wine tasting on a summers day? Why not!

Edwards Winery. Very nice. Good semillion sauvignon blanc.

We, of course, bought several bottles. None of which made it home with us!

Another winery, another tasting session. It really is a hard life for us.

More wine was drunk and more bottles of wine were bought.

And when we ran out of winerys we moved onto brewerys!

This place did a fantastic tasting paddle of every variety that they brewed. All were squiffingly good....

...however the one second from the left was the one that led to my downfall that particular day!

When the boys went off to hunt for marron in the rivers and there were no winerys or brewerys close by, mama and I pulled out a couple of chairs, opened a bottle of Savvy Blanc and proceeded to get tipsy drinking from plastic cups.

Sparkle And The Shark

Mr Ray. He really is very sorry for that whole Steve Irwin debacle!

First thing to do with Sparkle on her holiday? Scare the pants off her by taking her to visit 'The Neighbours'.

Meet Mr Sharkie...

He really is a sweetheart. Those teeth are just for show.

Mama, however, is not convinced!

By the end of the visit I did have Stevi and Murrae holding very dangerous creatures of the Australian dark waters.

Watch out for its massive teeth young Murrae!

A tender moment between siblings? Though it's all fun and games until someone loses an arm!

Brave brave Stevi. Hmm, maybe there aren't any fangs after all?

Mama is still not convinced!
