Wanna come on vacation with me?

I've been back for 2 weeks now but I spent 5 relaxing days on Mayne Island. I wanted to post a couple of pics so I could share the beauty of the island.

The cabin on the right hand side is where I stayed with my best friend, her husband, and their 2 kids (ages 2 and 3). You can only see half the cabin but there were 2 bedrooms and they kindly gave me one to myself so I could sleep-in even after the kids woke up at 6:30 everday.

You can see one of the kids chasing the soccer ball. I had such a fun time with them. I spent plenty of time on the beach with the kids as all they wanted to do was "Go frow wocks in water".

I learnt that kids are LOUD! As a single gal I'm not used to that. Also knitting around kids is not a good idea. It's just too distracting to get anything done.

Below is a shot of the end of the road and what the property looked like from the top of the hill. (This was taken beside the houses shown in pic 1)

On our second last evening on the island we went out for dinner and sat outside on the patio over looking the ocean. It was a beautiful, sunny day and a great way to have dinner. I'll leave you with the view we spent our dinner seeing.

Hi, Julia! So glad you said hello. YWAM is a great organization. I went with an org. called "Interlink Resources." Both times I went were summer camps for kids to learn English. It was the experience of a lifetime! I still remember some phrases like "Sala mat siz bah." (Of course, that's just what it sounds like!)
