Enjoying My 30th Birthday In My Backyard

As much as I do believe that you can travel and enjoy your own backyard, sometimes it doesn’t compare to the thrill of the unknown. Yet, other times, it’s amazing and you can appreciate the lifestyle you have – a lifestyle others have to travel for and can’t enjoy year-round.


Yesterday was my 30th birthday. I’m not a party person, so I booked the day off work and spent it at home with my husband.


We kicked off the day with a breakfast BBQ down at Suttons Beach.


We went home for a while and lazed about – it was a bit of a hot day but thankfully not so hot we needed the air conditioning on. I like actual fresh air (but am very appreciative of air conditioning during the worst of summer), which is another reason why I don’t think I could ever move away from the beach now that I live by it.


Some time after midday, we got hungry, so we drove up the road to a great little fish n chips shop call The Boat Shed. They’re not the cheapest place but the food quality is the best I’ve had. You can dine in (indoor & outdoor seating) or there are tons of picnic benches and shady spots under trees very close (walking distance close). We pulled our camp chairs out of the boot of the car and ate under a tree.


It was exactly what I wanted in a birthday – lazy, gorgeous and tasty.


What did you do for your last birthday?
