Yup, We Are Crazy! | West Beach, Adelaide

A very short time ago, after a few too many wines, we all got a little bit crazy. What we needed was a break ... a relaxing break. My sister suggested the most wonderful idea. A trip down to the south coast, a holiday park by the beach with all the kids, and a cabin. "Great", I said, "Brilliant idea!" ... "Let's drive to Adelaide!!". It was the wines talking when they all nodded their heads and we set some dates. Somehow, that huge leap in destination didn't phase us... Until we all sobered up and thought through the logistics. 5 Little ones, two cars, a round trip of well over 3000kms and over 30 hours spent in the car. But I was convinced on the idea. We would get to visit our beautiful family, and spend a week living across the road from the most beautiful beach, swimming, eating, and relaxing. The bonus would be that both Addison and Otu could celebrate their birthdays while away and we could make some serious memories for our kiddies. They were smart enough to veto my suggestion of camping (wasn't I glad they did as the rain bucketed down in Albury on the first night of our adventure) but I booked family rooms in motels before anyone could change their minds on my plans. There was no going back now!
