The big sandhill

My place in time #16 - An outing with friends

We went out for a drive with our neighbours and friends. They have kids around the same age as our kids. 

We actually went to dig up wild garlic near here, and took them to the 'big sandhill' for some sand boarding fun. We made the mistake of not taking lunch, we would have stayed longer and even driven over to the beach.

I've been coming here since I was a kid too. It's at the end of the dump road, or where the dump used to be. It's where many a four wheel driver come to test themselves, to see if they can make it up the hill in one go. The kids were lucky enough to see a few get up there. They youngest of our friends boys, was uber excited. It made his day. Seeing a motorbike come out of the dunes topped it off for him and he didn't stop telling us all about.

  9. Great photos and what a lot of fun. You've reminded me of the massive sand dunes a couple of hours north of Perth. I really would like to pay them another visit and have a bit of fun this time round.

  10. Nothing better than doing something with your children that you used to do as a child! Love being able to share these experiences. And love the picture of the flower in foreground with the dune in the background! Just perfect!!
