Support Local Living

Are you fed up of large corporations taking over and everything looking the same? I know I am. This blog shares a year in the life of a local family, supporting local living and local businesses.

Wellington Point

on February 20, 2012

Hubby was away for the weekend and I was home alone with 3 children for the weekend, so before we all went mad and killed each other (if you knew my children, you’d understand 😛 ) I decided to take them out and tire them out.

I packed a little picnic, stuck them all in the car and told them we were going on an adventure. Mr 9 wasn’t too impressed with being dragged away from his computer for a mystery tour, but he soon perked up when he realised where we were going.

We headed up to Wellington point, found a car park and walked our picnic over to the park. The weather was beautiful and the area was packed. We found a little shady spot and settled down. There is a beautiful children’s play park underneath the banyo trees, including swings, mini rock climbing walls, cubby houses and even a giant game of battle ships.


After convincing the kids to sit still enough to eat for a couple of minutes I let them go run wild in the park.

The park is right next to the beach, despite what it looks like from the photo, we were less than 5 meters from the sand. So once they had finished in the park, shoes came off and we went down onto the beach to play.

The tide was out which left us lots of beach to play with. There were hundreds of little crabs running across the water’s edge and the kids loved watching them (from a distance).

All in all it was a wonderful day. We went home sticky, sweaty and sandy but had a great time. They were all exhausted and even napped on the way home (successful trip in my mind).

What did you get up to over the weekend?
