Merry christmas to us

So we were back at the Beach house this week. John undercoated the celling and areas on the walls that the paint just wasn't covering up some marks.

But when we arrived there was a pretty bad smell around the van. By the second day we couldn't stand it and John and Tommy went in search... They found a dead rabbit under the van. Tommy being a hero did the deed and got under the van and got it out. We really have to fix the slats so no other animal can get under it

We spent some time down at the beach and Molly the Jones doggy loved playing in the water


 We are loving our little beach shack. The kids gave John and I a $200 Delete repeated word gift card so guess whos going to go and furnish the beach shack lol.

Have a Fab Chrissy and a amazing 2017
Love the Browns.

Ka Kahakai Hale. That's the beach house in Hawaiian

Well the renovations has started. John and I went to the van on the weekend and started to declutter and paint. We had another great week end meeting the neighbors and just spending time together.

We have decided to go a beach theme for the van. So we have started to paint the walls white

John did a great job it took 5 coats of paint to do the part he did!

While John was busy painting and fluffing around I went for a walk down to the beach and took in some of the sights around the area. 

                                                                 And to the skate park

and on Saturday morning we had a few visitors.

This girl got a bit frisky with john and chased him lol

and the possum was playing on our roof making a racket

It was another great weekend. We are loving it down there the people in the park that have other vans are nice as well. Its like one big family. We just cant wait to get back down there.

Oh when we got home on Sunday we just had to go to Ikea and grab a few things for out beach house lol of cause!!

                      Well that all for this week. Have a Merry Christmas and a Amazing 2017

Well hello there!

Its been awhile since we have had a blog. But I thought seeing we have bought a onsite caravan down at Batemans bay, John and I thought we would start up a new blog.

How did this happen? lol well we are asking the same question. We were content with cruising and now we are the proud owners of a onsite van. We swore we would never caravan again. But here we are again lol.

We went and visited our very good friends down at the caravan park last weekend. I (Taz) was in a very grumpy mood. I really just wanted to stay home and veg on the lounge. ( I'm a activities officer and had a very busy week with Christmas events) but JohnBoy and the Jones's insisted  that we should come down  for the weekend. So off we went on Saturday morning, yes I was grumbling the whole way. Any how we got there and had to pop in to the shops. I forgot how much I love Batemans bay shopping Centre. It felt like I was home I was relaxing!

Any how we were having a amazing time spending quality time with the Jones's. It was nice to catch up and just remember how much we love having them in our life. We hung out with the kangas. John had a bit too much to drink and thought he was one and was jumping around and sharing a patch of grass with them lol

There was a family with a baby

We fed the parrots that were around as well

And hung out on the beach

Any how we fell in love and then Jayne stated that there was a van 2 doors down for sale and we should look at it ( I was ready to kill her lol) Thanks Jayne!!!

I was so in love... My head was spinning with decorating ideas it was perfect.  John didn't need his arm twisted much neither he was in love too.

I cant wait to spend more time down there with the kids. The only down side is the are not pet friendly. But there is a Doggy motel up the road so may be Darien can have a holiday there!

So now the fun begins. The reno...  Stay tune for updates :)
