... the Koala. It was called 'Thor'! We both got to hold him and have out picture. He was very fluffy and not too heavy. They get called koala bears, but are not in the bear family.

... here. If not, we will head off again to somewhere a bit quieter. The pool is quite lovely (when there are no screeching kids in there!) We will make our way slowly home from here, staying a few days here and there. Sorry I don't have anything exciting to report but things are a bit quiet on the home front at the moment. When Ray feels better, hopefully we will start doing some interesting things ...
