|Lifou - our last shore day.|
I have never been on a cruise before, but recently the opportunity presented itself to try a cruising as a family holiday. The logic was trying to find a family holiday where "Mum" actually got a break - let's face it, all those mothers out there know, when you head away as a family, it is very rarely a break away for us.
|Hugo managed to break his elbow a week out from sailing!|
What could go wrong? My chronic motion sickness? The Ginger's autistic sensitivities? Hugo breaking his elbow badly a week from the trip?
Well none of the above. The combination of Scopoderm patches, Sealegs and Chardonnay worked a treat on any queasiness I may have had, the Ginger coped incredibly well - relishing his independence and once Hugo accepted that swimming was a no go because he did indeed break his elbow a week before the holiday, all was good - scratch that - great!
|Both boys LOVED Sydney - so much for them to do & see|
|The knitting started on the plane and continued throughout the cruise|
|Isle of Pines - our favourite shore stop|
|Selfie with the Ging!|
|We even got to see the Sydney Easter Parade.|
|Dreadful picture (taken by Hugo) but proof that I completed my project!|
