Beside the Seaside

Here is a purely self-indulgent post where I revel in photos from the blissful two weeks spent at Phillip Island in a unit next-door to my mum and dad:


We did a lot of this


And this

a winning hand

In the evenings, we had epic 500 battles.  This was my hand after I picked up kitty one night.  It was so good I had to take a picture to send to Jan in Ghana.  In the end, I had to choose between throwing out an ace or a trump.  Good times.


Morning walks


Hot chips on the beach


Delicious reads

books and magazines

And this most amazing cafe:


This cafe really deserves a post all to itself, but at the rate I’m turning out pieces at the moment, it might be safest just to talk about it here…


This cafe/clothes shop/toy store is called Molly Moo + Tilly Bear and we spent many a blissful morning here.


There really were too many lovely things for my poor eyes to take in at once.



A nice problem to have, really.


Oh!  Just look at the Trivial Pursuit cards on the table!


Oh Phillip Island!  How I miss you!

Thanks for sharing the photos I spent a few moments day dreaming of lying there on that beach soaking in sun…the view is fantastic!!

      I must admit, on some of our sweltering days, I’ve been daydreaming about snow! The cafe was just lovely. There were some other lovely things I wanted to take a picture of, like the darling lampshades near the counter, but I wasn’t brave enough! Thanks for stopping by!

    What delightful photos. It’s funny, you don’t always realise, when you take a photo, what rich memories they will evoke later. Thank you for sharing your holiday memories.

    Such an amazing 500 hand. I love that little buzz that tingles in your tummy as you play out a hand like that! I would have loved to be at Phil’s Island with you all!

      Would have loved to have had you there too. You could have shared in our clandestine card games and precious morning teas.
