arguments against homeschool criticism against homeschool parenting daughters sons raising children australia surf love homeschool lessons
This morning was John's second surf class.
The class is down at a gorgeous beach called Currumbin Beach. The weather was quite breezy and
beautiful and absolutely perfect, as usual. It was about 85 degrees F with with enough cloud cover to keep it from getting too hot from the sun. I doubt I will ever ever complain about the weather here. It's just too perfect.
Today was no different. The events of the day were simply All Aussie. We had waves, whales, and
Last week at the first surfing class the tide was in and the kids were taking
their lessons in this lovely, mild little cove. Today the tide was
out and the lessons were much further out and not quite as mild. But
the water is still only about waste-high at its deepest. John
struggled to get onto the board, but he finally did hang himself some ten!
the lesson, a pod of whales was spotted off in the distance, maybe
half a kilometer away...quite close! We saw at least three adults and
one baby! I tried getting some video; finally got some in another
spot down the beach. In the meantime, I did get a few good
flukes on some pics.
Off in the distance behind the surfers you can see the
town of Surfer's Paradise, sitting like a gem in the distance! No camera I know of could capture the beauty of this view! But I've tried! The
beaches in Surfer's Paradise are stunning.

Here at Currumbin is this amazing finger of land sticking out into the water creating a lovely, safe, gentle beach. At the end of that finger of land is a HUGE stone and plenty of tidal pools. It is a gorgeous place, hey. As usual, there is no way to capture the grandeur of this huge stone.

It was a LOVELY day
for whale watching from the beach!
After the lesson the kids hung
out on the beach and in the water, exchanged Facebook and Tumblr information, and planned on a movie this coming Friday.
