On Tuesday we went to Tropical Fruit World, one of the largest fruit farms in the world. We sampled a wide variety of fruit, saw lots of interesting plants, and brought home some tasty snacks.
Ice cream after dinner on our day of arrival in Coolangatta.
Not much better than starting into new books!
We are all tired and happy.
We finally had the chance to use a Christmas gift from last year – Cliff and I went behind the scenes with the penguins at the Melbourne aquarium. They have both king penguins and gentoo penguins and we went out on the ice with them. We’re not allowed to take cameras or anything else, so don’t have photos of the experience itself, but here is Cliff greeting one of the gentoos as we were leaving.
After a long day of fishing, Colin wasn’t tired at all. I found this when I went up to tuck him in.
For our holiday gathering, my team from work decided to play lawn bowls. I had never played before and didn’t even know the rules. Once I realized it was just curling on the grass, I was good to go. I just needed Cliff at the other end holding a broom for me to aim at.
Laura headed out this weekend to get some new clothes. She keeps growing and all her clothes have gotten small.
Just hangin’ out, catching some dinner.
The rainbow lorikeets finally found the feeder! Between the feeder and the bird bath getting several daily visitors now, I am so enjoying having all these feathered friends to watch while I am working.
