A challenge!

Anita Meade set me a photo challenge - this is what I had to do.

Go to where you store you pictures on your computer.
Go to the SIXTH folder and pick the SIXTH picture.
Post that picture on your blog along with a SHORT story about it.
Tag SIX people and leave a comment on their blog or email them letting them know you chose them.






This photo was taken in January 2009 while holidaying at Broadbeach, Gold Coast.
I love it for a number of reasons ...

1. I used my new little compact Canon IXUS 90IS without a care in the world of getting sand in it like I would have if I'd taken my digital SLR.

2. It's got my 3 favourite boys in the photo.

3. And it's just how I saw it while I was relaxing on the beach towel.

4. Oh, and I love Joshua's little red swimming togs - quite french I think!

This day was like most of our days at the beach - wake up at 6.30/7.00am, breakfast, get ready, heaps of sunscreen and then 9.00am a visit to the beach, 10.00am up to the pool, 11.00am back to the unit for a clean up and lunch - it was great!

Anyway, I tag ..........

3. http://helenkaranfilovski.blogspot.com/
4. http://whereiamat-amanda.blogspot.com/
5. http://melanie-notesfromhome.blogspot.com/

These girls are the first 5 names on the 'blogs I visit' list, except Melanie who is the 6th but my sweet friend Melissa who is actualy number 5, has just given birth to her 3rd son, Jackson - congratulations Melissa! It might just be a bit too much to expect her to do this challenge!

If you like the challenge, leave me a link to your blog and I'll add it here for everyone to see. Thanks for the challenge - you know I love them!
