It's a public holiday today in South Australia, for the Adelaide Cup, and Labour Day in Victoria. The 10th of March is also Canberra Day in the ACT, and Eight Hours Day in Tassie.
We've travelled over the border into Victoria for a few days in Warrnambool, at the Surfside caravan park. The park is chocca block, the fullest I've seen it in years. It's on the beach and the Victorian Nipper(surf life saving)championships were on, kids and good looking fit people everywhere!
With so many people, the go was getting up at sparrows fart for a shower, to avoid the line up. About five in the pm was also a bad time, I bathed the girls in the laundry tubs. So glad I had a spare bath plug in the caravan, because they don't provide them with the tub.
One of the perks of getting up early, is going out for a walk to watch the sunrise, before the kids were up. There is an awesome walking, running and cycling track along the beach, also where you will see lots of good looking fit people(that wasn't me!).
It's been a great weekend, friends joined us, and we went to the Port Fairy folk festival and checked out some of the sights.
The next long weekend we are expecting is Good Friday on the 18th of April, followed by Easter Saturday and Easter Monday, then Anzac Day on Friday the 25th of April. I am wondering how many people have put in for those three days off work in between Easter and Anzac Day!
We've been going on a few short trips of late, I am looking forward to staying home over Easter.
Are you off anywhere over Easter?
What do you get up to on your long weekends?
