Growing Up

 

 

 

 

Its scary when your children think time is moving fast.  When I was a child I though hours went for days, and days went for weeks.  I took these photos over the holiday break at Scamander, on the East Coast of Tasmania.  Someone commented to me that she looks so grown up, and she does.  She still hates having her photo taken but sometimes I can convince her to be my model and she will have a little fun with it.

When I opened the photos to edit them I realised, she surely isn’t little anymore and time is just going way. too. fast.

Glass Bottom Boat – Bicheno, Tasmania

 

 

During this years summer break we spent some time camping at Scamander.  We made a day trip to Bicheno with some family and friends.  We took a ride on the Glass Bottom Boat.  I was a bit unsure how all the kids (and myself) would go on the boat (I get motion sickness easily) but it was fine.

Around the outside edge of the boat are chairs that go all the way around and then an edge around the glass bottom.

Our boat driver (captain?) was very kind, and informative about the sea life.

We saw lots of fish, sting rays and star fish, but much to the boys despair, no sharks.

My youngest boy coped really well and only got sick of it in the last ten minutes or so, think he was getting cold as it was quite windy, so if you go, wear a jacket!

We also travelled around the rocks and saw some birds that look like penguins….

The trip was approximately about 40 minutes and the cost normally $18 an adult and $5 per child over 4 (although because we booked as a group we got on a bit cheaper).  A highly recommended family activity!
