Thinking of holidays…again….after spending a day of Gorse burning,lugging and raking..thoughts naturally turn to the dreamy and halcyon times of doing nothing more than moving from pool to beach to food.
Hope you enjoy the Whitsundays as much as we do..
Abel point mariner..
I can still hear the water lapping against the boats
These birds have the nickname of the Whitsunday Penguins
Of course the Great Barrier Reef
Southern right whales and their babies,spotted in the coral sea as we flew in to the reef
Ahhhh – lovely, lovely. Just the antidote for a cold winters day. I love the Whitsundays 🙂
Brilliant place isn’t it 🙂 lucky country indeed 🙂
Beautiful photos! I’d certainly be thinking of those spots vs. a pile of gorse any old day!!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy (and his Mom)
Hehe rotten gorse !

Mum did get it done…but da Docktur can’t figure out what iz wrong wif her…so we iz back where we started….Mum wif a bery sore throat n dry coff n me hopin she iz gonna be all right!!! 😉
Poor mum 😦 at least you got a nice fat fly to keep her well fed if she’s too sick/pathetic to feed herself 🙂
Maybe mum got the catflu nylablue 🙂 🙂
Yow me eated da fly so when Mum came home she waz lookin fer it…well she found it diz mornin when me barfed up me brekkie 🙂
Funny fing: Mum made fish n chips n peaz/carrotz fer supper n had yogurt fer ‘ssert…maybee da thought of eatin ‘fly’ gave her sum ambishun…
her throat iz STILL bery sore n she feelz yucky she told me…Maybee it iz cat flu…poor old Mum 😦

Hi Nylablueeeeeeee no itz not even closes to mean-o-paws hehehe I asked for the tests coz the dr put me on HRT and this new dr got the tests and said no not even close to it! so he wants to check my Adrenal glands for nasties..i am glad mumz going to keep checking with the drs coz your mum should be getting better…and my bits went 12 years ago cept my ovaries so I still have some bitz hehehe
You take care of yourself and mum
Whew dat is grreat iz iz not mean-a-pawz…Mum went thru Hot stuff wif dat. She had to takez sum Estergenz fer a while…on n off. She waz scared of gettin Cancerz but da simsomz were so bad she cuud not funkshun propurrly…..Fankz to CATGOD she iz posty mean-o-pawz fer a couple of yearz now…
Me Mum sayz she wunderz bout yer Adrenal glandz cause dey can cause all sortz of weird fingz to happen in da body. (Mum fanciez she nose alot cause she waz in Nursin a bazillion yearz ago!).
Mum wunderz if da Mono haz reterned? Dat wuud be pawfull…
You lost ‘doez’ bitz too Miss Bev?? Me Mum too when she waz 29 which waz almost 30 yearz ago… ye ahure have alot in common.
Me lost ALL me bitz when me waz 5 yearz old n dat waz a guud fing; no more kitz n no more wurriez…. 😉
We do have a lot in common Nylablue! I was pretty sure it wasn’t the mean-o-paws..mumz nursing makes her know lots of stuff,i think sometimes the drs think it’s the cause of everything…broken leg..mean-o-paws hahahaha ..hope mum doesn’t have the monos better the stereos least it sounds good 😉 and yes you don’t need your bitz Nylablue…too many kitties need homes and you would worry bout your babies 🙂
Yer Mum waz in Nursin too?? No wunder dey nose alot!!
Mum had Mono befur n it waz pawful…she cuud not go out or do much of anyfing…
She nose sumfing iz wrong now but can’t put her paw on it….
Yer right about me bitz!!! Me had many many kitz befur me waz finally spayed…me wunderz where dey all are now??? Mum tellz me not to fink of it too much or me getz sad…..dere were about 15 litterz n alot of kitz…me can’t bemember how many….Yow me must not fink of it….
Sowwy me got a bit sad dere.
