Moving in to Ocean Grove

Last weekend was the Queens Birthday Long Weekend in Australia and as such it gave us the perfect 3 days to move into the Beach House at Ocean Grove.  It was the perfect 3 days as Victoria even stopped the rain while we moved – something we were worried about given it had been raining all week prior.

Mum and Dad came down Friday from Albury to help. Dad, Em and I managed to get a load on the truck in Hawthorn and unloaded at Ocean Grove on the Friday night – mainly the big furniture items.  Saturday morning we then loaded the truck again, this time largely with boxes and smaller stuff. Brent and family came to help which meant a 3rd generation whizzing around on a furniture trolley.

Saturday afternoon we took in the Carlton versus Adelaide Game at the MCG on the Saturday afternoon – Carlton lost again but it was probably their most competitive match.

We all drove to Ocean Grove Sunday morning and stayed Sunday and Monday which meant we got most of the furniture assembled and boxes unpacked. It was a great to be able to take walks on the beach in between unpacking 🙂

Photos on the beach have also given me a chance to put what I think is the first photo on the blog of my youngest nephew – Lewis.

Poor Ruby was ill for the whole weekend and Kerrie and Em. The only time she moved from her bean bag and blanket was for slow walks on the beach.
