"Thank You" and some Holiday Snaps...


Hi Blogging Beauties,

Thank you so much for your beautiful thoughts about my Nanny.  I really appreciated them.  We had a beautiful funeral for her.  The church was full and each of the Grand-kids had a special role to do.  We also spent a few days with all the family catching up.  It was so good to see everyone.  Luckily a few relatives are staying on for a couple of weeks to keep my Granddad company while he adjusts to life without Nanny.  I will be a frequent visitor no doubt.


Just before my Nan passed away Ben and I had taken a couple of days break away at the beautiful town of Port Douglas in far north Queensland.  We soaked up the lovely weather, ate our favourite seafoods and walked along the beach.  I think I managed to fit in a nap every day.  It was very relaxing.  I wanted to share a couple of photos....


This is the beach we walked along every day.  It was very windy and not warm enough for me to swim.  Other people weren't as precious as me and were quite happy to brave the cold water.


This is me having oysters for an entrĂ©e and a Caesar salad with prawns for lunch.  I have a bit of an obsession with seafood.  This was at the Courthouse Hotel.  I think my most favourite Hotel in the whole world!!  I don't eat seafood inland very often , because I am always a bit wary of its freshness so I always try to eat as much of it as I can when we go away.


We had a lovely time.  If you haven't visited Port Douglas I highly recommend it.  This was our second visit there and we are keen to go back.  We got our accommodation on sale at Wotif, so apart from the flights that cost a bit, it was a very cheap holiday.  All we spent our money on was food and because of the great pubs and restaurants you don't have to spend a lot of money to eat very well. 
 (I have included a map for any overseas visitors who might not know where Port Douglas is.)


I will be back with some cards hopefully tomorrow.

Thank you for visiting.
