Holidays involving a trip to the airport are memories I cherish from my childhood, Z was no less impressed on this trip.
Tropical flowers, monsoonal rain and full days spent swimming in the pool were all part of the magic.
It was a wonderful mix of contrasts. Perfectly depicted by the battered NRL football we found in the park and the sublime tropical work of Anne Marie Graham, a Melbournian artist, currently exhibiting at the Cairns Regional Gallery.
We are all definitely restored and relaxed. There's nothing better than a family holiday to get everyone back to basics.
I hope you had a wonderful couple of weeks and that you too are ready to face the pending Christmas merriment. Tomorrow is November. Blimey Christmas is just around the corner..... how did that happen?
