Explosion at Senses...

A gas explosion hit the Senses resort in Kaslik north of Beirut owned by my sister and her husband, on Saturday morning, the morning of New Year's eve. My mother called me in tears. The whole Senses team went for questioning. Everyone thought it was a terrorist attack. Everyone was screaming and shaking.
Later in the day,after further investigations, the explosion turned out to be the result of a gas pipeline leak, and that the blast was not an attempt to sabotage the resort. The blast caused only material damage, in the main lobby and the restaurant. No one got hurt.

I just want to say to my family and to the team of Senses, thank goodness you are safe, we love you, be brave and we are very sorry to hear about the horrible news but glad that no one got hurt. If there is anything we can do to support you and to help you, please do not hesitate...

Skye's First Camping Trip...Bouncing in the Tent...

Skye on her new bike:

Happy New Year!!

Having a three year old is just an excuse to sleep early on new year's eve. Ok, so we slept at 10:00, but just to enjoy our holiday better rested. We explored South, this time, it was Margaret River for our first camping trip with Skye. Again, surrounded by majestic beaches beyond the eyes to see. We stayed in a tent all three of us and at night when everything was quiet, the kangaroos would sneak up to graze around us. We stayed in a caravan park full of families. There was a bouncy castle, a volley ball and basket ball field, a tennis ball court and they even had an outdoor cinema for the kids under the stars.
Every beach we went to was busy with surfers,windsurfers and kite surfers. We also found an impressive shell museum. It took Michael a lot of convincing to get me out of there. I felt like a kid in a candy shop.
We did not have time for the vineyards and the wineries, unfortunately.

                                                   The view outside our tent!!!!

                                           Daddy and Skye snoring in the tent....Zzzzzzzzz

One of many vineyards we came across. The locals call this one "the chick on a stick".

What a day! What a morning! Skye was screaming as if the house was on fire!
At 7:00 a.m., she runs into our bedroom screaming: " Mommy! Daddy! Santa was here! Santa was here! He got me a bike and lots of presents! He even ate his Christmas cookie which we left him and drank all his milk! His reindeer ate the carrots which we left, too!" As you can tell, it was a morning made of chocolates and sweets, sparkly wrapping paper and dreams. Wish you were all here to share our joy and happiness. We hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas.
After opening our gifts and having breakfast, we were invited for a Christmas lunch at our friends' house which was lovely, great food and lots of Mojitos.

The following day, we decided to head North for a bit of exploring for a few days. So we drove to Lancelin with its spectacular beaches.
