2 days away from being away

holly and i just spent a couple of days taking a holiday from our holiday. we went away to a beach front property on the 'Yorke Peninsula' with my brother, his wife and his 3 kids.

last night @ the beach house we saw smoke on the horizon thru the big glass windows as we sat down to play a board game which led us to look stand up and walk outside. a mile or two away we saw a blazing fire picking up momentum with the strong winds (55 miles an hour) which left us wondering if we should get the heck outta there or just keep a close eye on it. the winds were blowing away from us which made us feel better and came to the conclusion that seeing we were so close to the beach we were in the best place. if we it came to an emergency we could scoop up the kids and head for the water...anywayz, it didn't come to that but was a little scary.

here's where we were on the map. 'A' is where my mums house is 'B' is where we went.
