Happy Fathers Day

We hadn’t planned a lot for father’s day this year but the day turned out ok.


Jasmine and I went food shopping and bought some “nice” food!  After driving to a beach we set ourselves up at a picnic table and had a feed!

When the food was gone the girls and Jireh dispersed to find something to do!  The older two took their dogs and explored along the beach.  The next two followed and found a fallen tree that made a fun place to play!  We speculated that maybe the tree was there because of Cyclone Yasi in February last year that came ashore about 50 km’s south.

While Mike and I sat on the rocks the younger guys played in the sand!










Some of the girls found a couple of coconuts still with the husk on!  The dogs had a go at getting the husk off, but in the end the girls did a better job!  The milk was refreshing and the flesh delicious!

After running and playing everyone was hungry again, so we topped off they day with hot chips from Flying Fish Point Cafe!


How was your fathers day?


  1. Your day sounds like a magical one - I think it's best to not plan a lot and go with the flow!

    We had a pretty laid back Fathers Day - apart from the blocked toilet. It's still not fixed despite our best efforts, so looks like a plumbers job for sure.
    However we did have a yummy fry up for brunch cooked by a fabulous dad, followed by a trip to the beach for the youngsters to play and to go for a walk. All told an enjoyable day :)

    1. That's great!! Hope you get ya toilet fixed!!!

  2. How amazing!! I found your blog through Sparkling Adventures blog (Lauren Fisher) as she blogged about meeting up with you all at Redcliff. I was curious to come see your blog, and I find you had spent the day at Flying Fish Point.. well, that is where I LIVE!! What a small world we truly live in! We live in God's own paradise here.. such a beautiful spot. I am glad you enjoyed your day here. Our labrador loves his beach walks too.
