Back Home

Adelaide Sunsets

Well Ry and I have been back in oz for 3 weeks again, whilst Papa Kuni is off in Hawaii, Sri Lanka and Bali shooting and working hard! The past few weeks have been full of action, with tough family situations to deal with as well as lots of great moments with friends, family and plenty of beach time in this pristine weather!
Last weekend we stayed down at Middleton for a few days with the cousins, to celebrate Aunty Chris' 65th birthday! Aunty Chris has been diagnosed with a terminal rare blood disease, but is fighting with all her might and doing well. The party was a blast, great to see the sun shine and can you believe she put a surfing ban on all of us on the one day of the year that Middleton Bay was CRANKING!! A few grumpy kids in the morning I tell ya!! ha ha!

Ry has been having a ball playing with all the cousins! Jethro is 2 months older than him and the two had their Christening ceremony down on the beach at Middleton Bay- Uncle Coxy and Uncle Dan did the honors of pouring water from Wategos Beach in Byron Bay over the boys heads, inducting them into our religion-SURFING!

Serena and I even got in a little surf with Kate, Andrew and Uncle Coxy! Single fins and twinnies! Yeah!

For the past few days now Ry and I have been staying at Uncle John and Aunty Evelyn's house at Maslins Beach, the ocean view is amazing! Water is just perfect and the sunsets have been fantastic. We went out to lunch at a winery/cafe/gallery called Red Poles today, absolutely delicious! John has been painting some of their tables so in return we were treated to their finest sparkling red, ravioli soup and grilled snapper. Ry made a little girlfriend and played ball with Archie the dog.
Check out the cafe, Evelyn's giant BILBY inflatable will be up over the Easter weekend at Red Poles, along with live entertainment, more wine and great food!

Tomorrow we go back to mum's house, then back to Middleton on the weekend, and one last week in Adelaide before flying up to the east coast for a month, before going to meet Kuni in Bali! Can't wait!
