A little holiday

Tomorrow we will be off on a little holiday to Palm Cove, which is 20 minutes out of Cairns in Queensland. We are looking forward to escaping our winter to spend a week in this tropical part of the world.
Looking forward to relaxing, some exercise and not doing very much
Palm Cove ~ looks so pretty with the palm trees and this is on the Great Barrier reef, so I hope we can swim amongst the fish and coral.
Maybe a cocktail or two.
.... and some swimming.

Wishing you all a wonderful week and I hope all your plans and wishes come true.
Many thanks for your visits, leaving a comment and to new followers, I really appreciate your friendship. I will try and get around to visiting before I go away, but if I don't will come and see you when I get back.

Hugs
Carolyn

  5. Hi Carolyn,
    I am so sorry I haven't been around much. I have been finding things a little uphill since losing Bernie. Am finding things a little easier now. Your holiday sounds just wonderful. I hope you have the best, most relaxing time ever. It is certainly a beautiful part of the world. Britty and I are off to England in a couple of weeks to take Bernie's ashes home. Will try and send you a note from there. I hope to be around a little more now. Take care and have fun.
    Cheers,
