My big family
Next we headed off to my parents in Warrnambool, but not before a slight detour past the spot where Lindsay and I were first intoduced, in Portarlington, and it was here I proposed, she said yes.
So Lindsay's dad rented a house boat, and it was great, the house boat on the bank, some skiing, bbq dinners, swimming and just a good relaxing week, and good to see Lindsay back on the water. Swim shorts and a pair of thongs was the dress code all week.
Myself, my two brothers Peter and Chris and brother inlaw Colin
out for a ride on Boxing Day.
With our belly's full of Christmas meals it was back to Lindsay's mums for our last 3 days, another Christmas meal. We took a short trip to see some of Lindsay's other family members on her dads side and to see some of her good friends, other than that we had some packing to do. So that was basically our trip, very busy but also great, great to have a summer, eat a meat pie, have fish n chips on the beach and everything else Aussie.
