Well as you all know we had a guest not only for Christmas but to go on holidays with us..yes Bashful..all the way from the U.S of A..
Bacon and I made arrangements about this time last year! so pretty good to keep a secret for a year!
The little guy had a great pre Christmas with our family and we held a beach theme..to get ready for the big trip! so all the tables and food was relaxed and beachy!
I decided on a beach theme for our early family Christmas
We left home on the 23rd, dropped the pets off at boarding and headed to the city for the night..an early flight Christmas eve morning for us all.
Bashful needed a quick coffee and muffin on the plane to wake up..
Seat 1A Bashful has some brekky
It’s a reasonably long flight to Cairns but we arrived and it was hot! and humid! and fantastic…..
We grabbed our little pea pod sized hire car and headed to Palm Cove..we arrived and straight away Bashful was off for a look around..

We found our room and headed up to unpack..
Bashful ready to relax..think he was hinting at a dip in the pool!
Bashful soon found that the Pine-Lime Splice Cocktail was a perfect fix for the heat..remember the little guy is used to a cool winter!
It’s okay..i made sure the little guy didn’t drink to excess!
We dried off and headed out..off to Barron falls..nothing like a bit of an explore..The fall were lovely not running with a lot of water as the rains had not been yet..seems everywhere we are waiting for rain! you see this is Far North Queenslands wet season..they are tropics..so wet and humid is how they roll!

The stunning paths inside Barron Falls Gorge
I had some camera and sweaty eye issues the humidity was crazy…so sorry for the blown out shot of Bashful with the falls behind him..many of my pics did not turn out well at all..the humidty was making me nuts! I have to say my worst day ever at taking pictures..
Barron falls and Bashful
After a good walk around we left and headed to Kuranda and the Butterfly Sanctuary..and another humid zone..what was I thinking!!

Somehow I lost Bashful and Fozziedad as I sweated my way through the butterfly house..but what a lovely sight..we have some stunning Butterflies in this country.
The interior of the house
Look at them all..stunning
At the feeding station this sweet one has a feed
We left and heade back to the resort to spend the rest of the day swimming and relaxing and then had a lovely dinner..i had the Salmon and Fozziedad had a risotto..both divine..but of course sweets are always my fave..think Bashful likes them too!
Bashful sharing our meal.
I had a lovely chocolate sour cherry brownie with micro herbs and Fozziedad had a deconstructed Toblerone parfait…..yummm
Christmas morning we woke to see Santa had been..he had left a gingerbread man and some chockies on our doorstep..we wished Bashful a Merry Christmas and headed down for brekky…and the day began..next post is our Christmas day with the little guy.
Hugs Fozziemum 🙂
