Only four more sleeps till it’s Christmas day and like most people I’m excited.
Not only because there will be presents to be opened – though this is one very good reason to wish the rest of the week away – no, I’m mostly looking forward to a four-day weekend and one of those days being spent on a beautiful, sandy beach.
As an Australian nothing quite says Christmas more than spending a sunshine filled day by the ocean whilst enjoying freshly cooked fish and crab for lunch and partaking in a spot of beach cricket afterward.
You usually have to hit the good spots early in the morning otherwise you completely miss out on a table, let alone one that is under a shady tree and you sometimes have to share a your piece of the beach with another family but everyone is fairly relaxed and the beach works its own sort of magic on you, leaving you sleepy at the end of the day.
How are you spending your Christmas? What are you most looking forward to?
