This week’s theme is ”Balanced”.
Here is my choice for this week’s Ruby Tuesday – this is a cafe/art gallery we passed when driving around Queensland, taking the scenic route round the back through the highlands between Cairns and Port Douglas … it was an awesome little detour that perked us up for the next stage of driving – I would definitely recommend stopping for a stroll and a bite to eat if you’re ever driving through Tolga.
Here are a few more shots of friends of the feathered variety that we met while on holiday:
And here are a couple of shots of the beach/ocean in and around Port Douglas:
And a couple of views of the scenery along the way:
And finally a quick mosaic of various parts of Queensland life that we saw while on holiday:

Sorry, too busy to write anything more … probably won’t get chance to get online again before the weekend … and no stitching to show for all the busy-ness!
Just a really quick post, so I can upload some holiday snaps, as well as my latest stitching finishes. Here goes …
First up my latest finishes from yesterday and today:

Next up are some piccies from the Mossman Gorge in Tropical North Queensland from last week’s holiday – a wonderful spot just a short drive from Port Douglas … love, love, LOVED it there:
Next are some of the critters we came across on the same holiday … don’t scroll down any further if you don’t like crocodiles and/or snakes!!!
More piccies will follow shortly … of the gentler feathered friends we met while away, as well as some general piccies of Cairns, Port Douglas, and the general surrounding areas 🙂
This week’s theme is ”Surprise” and we got a Surprise when we saw this sight in Napier, New Zealand last Christmas – unfortunately times are really tough, and it appears the reindeers have all been made redundant … there may be delays in gifts arriving this year! 😛
Then imagine our Surprise when we turned a corner in a Queensland Zoo and found this ‘little’ Surprise waiting for us on the footpath looking all brave! Yep, definitely a surprise when we’d only just recently been looking at one of its relatives behind wire bars!! Here’s an Iguana enjoying its day in the sun 😀
