Bashful says farewell to Australia

Well we have had a ball taking Bashful with us on holiday up to Cairns.
We tried to make sure he saw as much as we did and experienced all that the Northern part of our beautiful country has to offer…sun sand sea and rainforest.
I think he had a ball..this is the second time he has visited us and it was a long time in the planning!
In fact when we booked our holiday early in 2014 i spoke to Bacon and the plan was hatched! so we kept the secret for nearly a year..amazing for me!

This week the little guy will wing his way home..and i am sure he has many tales to tell..and i also believe he has a little explaining to do!! (more of that later 😉 )

So i have got a little group of pics to show as we bid our little mate farewell and say safe travels…

So it seems fitting to say bye bye to Bashful with some fireworks..we sat on the beach on New Years eve..eating fish and chips and watching the fireworks over the coral sea..Bashful had a great night and so did we..so adieu my friend and let’s do this again!
