I hope everyone had a lovely Easter and got some chocolate. Here are all the kids in our family looking for chocolate.
All the kids at Lake Conjola

We went to Sannas mums holiday house at Lake Conjola for 3 days. Here is baby Zara’s first time at a beach, catching some sun on her tongue.

We found a dead dolphin at the beach that looked to be covered in black oil.

We spotted lots of kangeroos around the house.

Everyone loves cooing over baby Zara, she has a lot of fans.

Basma is good at multi tasking looking after the kids.

All the kids had a lot of fun all the weekend.

Lots of kayacking and playing ‘piggy in the middle’ in the shalow lake, its only knee deep.

Driver briefing before we head off on our days alpine drive.

I didn’t get any other photos of the day, but it was around 500km’s of very fast and the best fun driving I think I’ve ever had. A loop through all the Alpine regions best roads. I do have some videos though, here’s though the tighter twisty mountains:

Stopping at the top of one of the mountains, note the Black Elise got a bad puncture, we were all looking to help.

Driving across the higher ridges with all the dead tree’s

After a good night out at the Black Bear German restaurant and a good night’s sleep, we’re all off again.

Porsche 911 (991) gen 2 launch party

I was invited by friend Courtney on 3rd March to the Australian launch of the new Porsche 911 (991) generation 2 launch party. Interesting technically as now Porsche has switched ALL their 911 models to use turbocharging, something the purists are not so happy with.Porsche 911(991) gen2 under cover

After some videos about innovation and building on the past and some puffs of smoke, the new car was unveiled, and I was impressed.
