Beach Camping

On Tuesday morning we drove west towards the Otways, a place my family went camping when my brother and I were kids. We took the Great Ocean Road, where the car winds around dangerous corners and tourists stop in the middle of the road to take photos of stoned koalas in gumtrees.

We went past Apollo Bay to a secret beach where we camped right next to the ocean, drank beer, made vegetable kebabs, toasted marshmallows, swam in the clear sea and walked over rock pools. We only camped for one night but could have stayed forever. Last night was spent eating dinner with friends we had made at the campground and Casper played with a brother and sister who gave him stickers and played Klop! until it was time to drive back to Melbourne.

 I have redesigned my blog yet again, but this time I will leave it for a while. I was having issues with the picture size and quality, but I have figured that out too. What do you think of it?

I am posting my giveaway tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled!


  1. I think it looks lovely! Very cool water color. And one adorable boy too.

  2. Such a magic part of the world. Sam and i drove the great ocean road years ago and vowed we'd return and do it again sometime.

  3. Love your header. Pretty, pretty. I'm in a constant war with my blog design and I've currently decided to let it be for a while for fear of working to a point of no return! Camping...sounds so dreamy to while the cold winds blow! xo

  5. Such a sweet boy you have. And I love your watercolours, such a gorgeous way to tell a story :)

  6. Oh my, I really love that first painting. Beautiful. The watercolor header in those serene ocean colors is so great, too.

    My best,
