Summer holidays are best spent by the seaside

As a child growing up in the Sunshine State, we spent all of our school holidays by the seaside.

Our home away from home at the Gold Coast brings back memories of evening beach walks, trips to the corner store to spend our pocket money on lollies, and the morning routine of beach -> pool -> lunch. A tried and true recipe for holiday happiness.

I was excited to spend some quality family time on the coast again during my Christmas holidays and relive my youth. The lolly store is now a surfboard shop, and our quiet Currumbin estuary is now a hub of family activity with the development of a play park and a beachside cafe. But some of these new changes have brought with them new family traditions, one example of this is espresso at Barefoot Barista with my brothers.

The traditions may have slightly changed, but the sentiment remains the same 🙂
