Hey Dad.

We celebrated Fathers Day this month. It was another fabulous day driving across the countryside between Simon’s and my families, the only thing worth worrying about is who’s the driver (especially when the weather is warm again and a full glass of wine is your best friend)… We really are blessed with amazing families, and especially our Dad’s who will always do anything for us. So I want to dedicate a quick post to my Dad (Mike!) who has always been the smartest, kindest and handiest person I know (his nickname is Don Burke, not only for his unmistakeable resemblance to the garden king, but also the fact he can make, build, fix, paint, install and generally create almost anything that even Don Burke would be impressed!). He turned 60 this June, and he could still out-handyman anyone! We celebrated his 60th birthday with a weekend away to Victor Harbor, along the Fleurieu coastline about one hour south of Adelaide. Simon and I joined the clan late Friday night, and stayed till Monday (thank you, long weekend!). Our days were filled with food and wine on the top deck overlooking Granite Island, and our nights we dined out for pizza & pasta, and looked through old slide photos, and of course some crazy kids, Mum fussing about the place like she does, many bets against the brother-in-law in what he can and can’t do, and plenty of family fun  . I think my favourite part of looking back on the photos of this weekend, was that my camera was shared around, and the pictures are a mixture of everyone’s view of the weekend. Even more impressive – I gave the camera to Simon the day we went surfing (or attempted to), and I was surprised to find afterwards he had taken a huge amount of photos. For someone who squirms his face up when I ask him to take a photo, I couldn’t believe it!
