I have had the occassion to revisit some aspects of my childhood this week and one of my favourite experiences was holidays I spent with my Aunt and Uncle and cousins at a pristine spot called Woodgate Beach. We stayed in an old fibro cottage directly across from the beach separated by a very quiet track which constituted a road. There were bonfires on the beach and lots of laughs and adventures.....even my 1st kiss as I got older. We ran wild and free came home for sustance and were off again. I was a constant fixture on the front of my cousins bike as we went off fishing, swimming or exploring and he was and still is a wonderful friend and is lucky enough to live there full time now. Yesterday I got to walk on this wonderful beach again, put my toes in the sea, collect seashells and sit and have my wonderful memories keep me company. I also loved sharing all this with my Husband and we have decided a holiday here in our van is in order. Even though it was a bit overcast it still worked it's magic on me.
What, where or who are your favourites today.

|Many a bonfire was collected for and fired up here and pippies collected and cooked in the fire.|
|This beautiful beach is the beach of my childhood|
|Putting my much older toes in the ocean for a paddle|
|There are still loads of shells wash up on this beach.|
