We hope you are all having a happy, peaceful and relaxing time over the holidays, whatever it is you celebrate.
For us (now down in the southern hemisphere) this time of year now coincides with our summer solstice so I find it a bit weird that people in Australia still put up symbols of winter like snowmen and snowflakes... but of course there are no rules so everyone is entitled to celebrate however they like.
We have been celebrating in true Australian style. We are staying on a campsite in Esperance (down on the south coast of Western Australia) right next to the beach with of course plenty of bunting and paperchains.
Esperance has some absolutely gorgeous beaches, the sea is turquoise and the sand is white fine powder. Apparently George Harrison used to have a holiday house around here somewhere.
We spent Christmas day on the beach, swimming, followed by surf and turf on the barbie and board games in the evening.
A very different Christmas to one usually spent in the UK but just as special!
Sending you all lots of love and peace and best wishes for 2013.
