We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

We could have been on any tropical beach in the South Pacific, except we were a one-hour ferry trip from Brisbane

Not a bad view huh!

In the background you can see the shipwreck, the quad bike track and the front right is our balcony!

Some of the 220 steps we did up from the beach to our house. Then it was 220 down. THEY WERE TIRING!

We had 10 dolphins come in for a feed, and two babies, just adorable.

Behind me is the wreck the Husband and I swam next to, we didn't have fins and current was too strong so we didn't attempt heading out. The crazy face is a result of having a quite drinkie on the beach! (Our friends gave us two hours without kids, and we did the same for them, best idea ever!)

Looking from Moreton Island towards Brisbane, a storm's a brewing!

Do you have a favourite family holiday spot? Have you been to Tangalooma?

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  6. Ooh what was it like for the little ones? We’ve been thinking of doing Tangalooma but have put it off, thinking that maybe 3 is too young… well that, and the fact that I’m angling for a Daydream Island dirty weekender instead πŸ˜‰

    • It was okay, although youngest suitable probably 3 or 4 . They would get more out of it when they’re 5 like my oldest πŸ™‚ But if I were you I’d go for dirty weekend for shiz, not even any question girl πŸ™‚
