Day at the Beach

Last Saturday, we made an impromptu trip to Lower Cheung Sha Beach on Lantau Island. Armed with our new car, Hubby decided to take a punt and go on an adventure drive to anywhere on Lantau. We drove past a sign that said Cheung Sha beach and went for it. There was one parking spot left! How fortuitous.

Once we got out of the car, we saw the restaurants the spilled onto the beach and knew it would be a great spot for me to have a snack while Hubby ran around the beach with the kids.

View from our table at the restaurant of Hubby and the kids running off in the distance.

The first restaurant amongst the row of 3 was a South African one. I ordered garlic bread, fish cakes, meats balls and a few drinks. I know I should have taken some pictures, but it was too hot and humid to bother. After the food arrived, Hubby and the kids went through it really quick which made me order more garlic bread and meats. I think Boy Wonder ate a WHOLE loaf of garlic bread all by himself.

I was also really thankful I brought the insect repellent! Darn those sand flies and little black hovering mozzy like things that bite you!

The kids loved making mud-pies since the sand had a tinge of black in it. Further down the beach was a little creek-like dip into the sand where the run-off from the hills next to the beach flows into the sea. It was lovely. The kids loved playing in the shallow pool of water.

After we ate and the kids played a bit more, it was just too hot and humid to hang around for much longer. We rinsed the kids off, got them an ice lolly each and got back into the car.

It was great to have been able to go to a nice beach on a whim like that. There was no way we could have done that without a car. I think it's looking like it'll be a more interesting summer than I first thought.

I am also an expat (Brit girl moved to Oz) and I am creating a blog about the Australian visa process.I am writing articles to help others who are looking to move to Australia.If you would like to submit a story to my blog I would love to hear about your experience of the Australian visa process, especially if it can help others. I would love to hear about whether you did it yourself or if you used a Migration Agent to help you, and what problems or pit-falls (if any) you experienced.
Thanks a lot and I love your blog.
