Karaoke for the eyes

By popular request i have put together some visual aids (i do of course mean images of things ive seen and not an incurable virus of the eyes) to help you ....well visualise i guess.



Port Douglas Jetty - Now ain't that pretty



A Rhino Beetle - Thats all it did for a whole 8 days



The Aussie way of reminding us to slow for Cassowaries when entering Cape Tribulation



The Cape of Tribulation - It looks pretty harmless to me



The Natural pools at Mossman Gorge - Can you think of a better way to escape the 36 degree heat?

There you go a few shots of my truly beautiful adopted country.
We are off to the spanish quarter today as they are having some kind of festival which i believe they call a fiesta (though i wont as fiesta in england is either a small car made by ford or a disreputable gentlemans magazine and certainly not the kind of thing you would consider a 'family event'). We will gorge ourselves on tapas, paella and sangria but hopefully remain sober enough not to dance with the senorettas.

Mmmmm, sangria....consume some for me...
So hmmmm...how long are you going to be down under for? Until a limb is gnawed on by one of those invisbile crocodiles? *grin* It looks and sounds fabulous there, though...

Kelly, now that winters setting in there i reckon you could do with a little sunshine.

BBFK, We have emmigrated here so maybe for ever. Although we are toying with the idea of working in Dubai for a few years to boost the bank accounts before touring europe for a while

They have an Apricot Fiesta every June in the Central Valley of California. I used to call it the Apricot Festival and got correct a lot of times by Wudas. Have fun at the fiesta.

Here is sunny California, with our Mexican heritage, we love fiestas. Big D and I would love to visit Australia and see that view up close and personal. Lucky you.

Hi Shannon, we missed the fiesta in the end. We got sidetracked fitting me for a tuxedo for the ball on Friday night. Yes im going to the ball in a tux just like James Bond.

Wudas, you would love it here. Some of the beaches are exquisite and the scenery rivals anythig i have seen in my travels. Because the country is so vast with such a small population, once you venture outside the main cities the beaches are relatively deserted. When we got to Cape Tribulation we were sharing that gorgeous beach with just 3 backpackers.

Those are great pics mate. We had our first frost of this Winter this morning. Cold damp and gray. *Jealous* :-)

We plan to visit someday. We are thinking of using the fly and ride program. That's where you fly to where you want then rent a Harley to get around. How are the roads?

Brom Man, I havent seen frost in a year now. We are thinking of going to new zealand next year in winter just to see some snow. I'll try to recolect what frost looks like as i laze by the pool sipping a gin & tonic :)

Wudas.
The Roads arent as good as they are in England but most are sealed (tarmac). Harleys are numerous here so you shouldn't have a problem. The Large cities and the roads between them are ok, though some beaches are only accessible with a 4wd vehicle. It would be a lovely thing to do and id be sooooo jealous. I want to get a trike but at the moment its a case of finding the $30,000 needed to buy one.

Haha, Sangria... she beat me to it...

Yeah, nice photos dude, appreciated :) The south of England had its first frost yesterday (Monday) and it's been pretty chilly, hat & fleece weather... Somehow winter's not got to me so much this year, so keep posting white sandy beaches to keep us happy :)

Lever: Should i enquire further about the Sangria or am i gonna hit on somthing thats best left unblogged?
I'll dig out some more beach pics for you.

Reb: Glad you like the pics. Fred was cool though i did, i must confess, toy with the idea of bending the branch really far back and releasing to see how far i could make him fly..........but i didnt

If id known pet kidnapping was a requirement i would have taken the bug spray gun.
