Weekend on Magnetic Island

This weekend we had what we jokingly called an overseas adventure. Sean, his girlfriend Miranda, about eight other friends and I took the 35 minute ferry across for the long weekend. It was Australia day and on the Sunday it was the hottest day Townsville has seen in seven years!

My New Vista

This is the view from the apartment the hospital has put me up in. That’s the Ross River and it is Saturday today so there are people waterskiing up and down.

Townsville Tropics

It is definitely tropical up here. The sun sets in the south these days, and I think the plumeria are out all year.

More Rotorua

For some reason all the photos didn’t upload. Might have something to do with us sailing out into the open ocean. I’ll try add some more now.

Rotorua

We are in port at Mount Maunganui and we rented a big van with some of our cruise friends and headed out to Rotorua. It was pretty great, and a wild world.

A few photo to show what it’s like.

New Zealand here we come!

We are on a boat, pointed at NZ… Should be good. Rough seas predicted so we’ll see about that! I’ll be out of contact for a bit.

Lunch Guest

We had a visitor here on Boxing Day, just after lunch. It’s a Blue Tongue lizard. It moves kinda like a snake but they are pretty harmless I think. A reminder of where we are.

Merry Christmas!

Here are a few snaps from our first Australian Christmas. The kids were great fun and were very excited about it all.
