Sydney’s Bondi Beach is known for great surf and topless sunbathing — luckily Kate was spotted on the North end, which is more family-friendly. There is also a shark net in the water designed to catch the deadly creatures. So the kids are missing school to hang out on a topless, shark-infested beach? Interesting.
Apparently to make her Australian getaway more enjoyable, Kate reportedly brought along quite the posse including two nannies, a cameraman, a sound technician and her beloved bodyguard, Steve Nield. We thought she wanted to spend some quality time with the kids, but with two nannies in tow, it sounds like she might have gotten to spend plenty of that time on her own, or with her ever-present bodyguard. Another eyewitness spotted the Gosselin group flying out of Sydney airport this morning, Jan. 2, perhaps heading to their next destination — New Zealand. Imagine how tired the kids must be after flying 22 hours across the world, and they only got to spend the weekend in Australia!
Although Jon had a nice New Year’s, he was upset he wasn’t with his kids on the important holiday. “Excited for 2011!!” he tweeted. “Spending the night in with @ellen_ross1 and watching the festivities on TV. Feeling blessed but missing my kids lots!” What do you think, Hollymoms? Should Kate have taken the kids on this getaway?
