Seriously though I am tired, possibly one would say ‘over-tired’ as it’s now 1:10am erm Tuesday morning.
We arrived back in Melbourne at 4.30 ish. I have been awake since 6:30am. We arrived in Melbourne, me in a skirt and t-shirt (had to show that I had a tan and that yes I’d been up North) to all the people that I did not know at the Airport… but luckily I had the foresight to pack the jeans (and bogan uggs) as Melbourne’s weather hadn’t changed…still winter, still bleak and miserable. Mr. S is snoring peacefully.
BUT fear not I am now able to share some of my holiday snaps (just a few as there are many) I shall post some more tomorrow ..lucky you! Oh, you may have to double click to enlarge as they came out rather small.
This was the view from our balcony.. say awwww
These were the cows(Brahman)that came down to drink along the Daintree river..Mr. Crocodile was around the bend
If you look real close… the brown thing in the water (to the right) is Mr. Crocodile
This is me holding up a very large rock in Mossman Gorge..yes I’m strong
Mossman Gorge yet again..think I’ll get this one blown up
A Bush Turkey I secretly followed.. he didn’t know
Where we stayed – yes it’s lovely
One of the butterflies in the sanctuary we visited
in the markets at Kuranda.. Aussie sense of humour
through the glass bottomed boat out from Green Island
how the rich and famous live in Cairns ( Mr. S and I put a deposit down for the boat) the helicopter is extra
Day 1 moi standing on a coconut…that’s what you do with them isn’t it? This was an early morning walk hence the outfit.
Mr. S with his gourmet lunch of egg and bacon sandwich at Daintree Village (doesn’t he looked thrilled at having another photo taken)
huggin’ a tree at Mossman Gorge..it’s what you do (and no I don’t normally hug trees)
rainforest looking up in the Daintree forest
Okay yippeda yippeda that’s all folks…till later
Beautiful RM I can see how Melbourne is such a let down after that.

Hello lovely tree hugger and er strong lady who reminded me of Atlas( mythology crazy me) bearing the weight of the world on his shoulders… Although technically the weight was not on your shoulders… Aren’t I weird? I love your photos
Ooooh you brought back memories and um, lovely Mr S. posing with his sandwich…
Ugh, getting back to Melbourne after that – eeuuww!
Hello sweet thing 🙂 Oh yes me Mrs. Atlas? No you aren’t weird, I went down the same path you did with the shoulder thing 🙂 Grumpy Mr. S (no he wasn’t actually) he says he doesn’t like his picture taken, because he never has a nice shot. Pfft to you my Mr. S! Yes it has been TERRIBLE and so hard to settle back in the cold 😦
Oh well..life goes on (in the cold) xxxxx
What a beautiful place! I love your pictures, you look great by the way!! great to see that you enjoyed yourselves so much xxx
Thank you T yes it is stunning – me? hmm well think the tree is the more stunning one lol xx
