Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone,

Well we have had a wonderful first Christmas here in Etty Bay.

Ate too much & definitely drank toooo much! I guess you can all guess what our New Year's Resolution is going to be :)

We had a wonderful time with our Daughter Shantelle & her Fiancee Peter visiting us.
We had the usual big roast meal:

Pete certainly enjoyed it!

The next day after a very lazy morning we went down to the beach.
great Fish & Chips!
Just Relaxing

 This fellow was on the tree next to us:

This big fella was on the tree next to us!

A beautiful day on the beach!

The next day we drove up past Cairns to Hartleys Crocodile Adventures:

There are other animals as well as Crocs




They are very friendly

Very Sleepy!

Of course they had Crocs & some pretty big ones too!

We nearly lost Pete!

Imagine seeing him in the water next to you !

Then on Saturday there was a huge fire across from us in the bush:

It was still burning last night, but it has been raining pretty much all day today so I think it would be out now.

Well that's all for now, over the next week or so I will try to get our year in photo's post put on - that always takes a long time.

So Happy New Year & we hope you all have a safe one with many "Happy Travels"

Dave & Shell


  1. had the best time :) Etty Bay is gorgeous and so is your new house. I think my favourite photo is of Dad and Pete polishing off the rest of the fish and chips they seem very happy with themselves haha Love you xx

  2. It was great having you both here - I think the best photo is you & Pete at the beach. xx

  3. Now Shell, surely you're jealous of our heatwave over here??

    A week in excess of 38, over 40 sometimes.......

    Happy New Year to you and Dave (I admit that I am a little jealous. I lovethat area of QLD).

    1. Hi Stephen & Robyn,

      Ha it has rained all day here & under 30 Lovely :)

      Happy New Year to you both.
