A big huge happy birthday to my big sister Jenni Fir Trees!
This is a family picture taken at her 21st birthday 34 years ago.
I am the youngest in the green elf suit aged 10.
My own daughter now 11 found this recent picture of herself and couldn't believe how much we look alike.

5 minutes away from my house can take you pretty much anywhere on a small 5km x 8 km island.
I heard of a photography challenge once that asked people to walk or drive exactly 5 minutes away from their house then when the timer went off, stop and take a photo of what you see.
Here is a Sunday in our lives (not a typical one as there is no such thing, each week is completely different)
Lets start with bacon and egg wraps for brunch 5 minutes away down the hill at Ball bay.
Even though we can hear the waves crashing from our place, the kids mentioned that we hadn't been there for a while to play.

We only got a quick play there when we got a phone call to say Brandt was coming back to the Kingston pier. He has worked out at Philip Island for the past 3 days and nights building things for the National Park.
So another 5 minutes away gets us down to Kingston.
Welcome to the new arrivals coming for a holiday, welcome back to any locals on the plane.
What a scenic view they have flying in.
There was plenty of fishing activity on the pier today.
A perfect day out on the water.
|This is why they call it stockyard road ☺The stock really do rule the roads, they have right of way.|
|The clearest waters at Emily bay|
|That's a lot of toes out on the raft|
|Time for the plane to leave back to Sydney. We hope you had a great time here on Norfolk Island|
|Dad gets pushed off the raft|
|A beautiful brother sister moment|
Both are gorgeous inside (most of the time) and out.
|And then the day ends with an awesome view like this... all 5 minutes away|
