      ... we are feeling a little toasty despite our frequent sunscreen reapplications. We have also discovered that even in Australia "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" is played on Christmas Day. So while we watch Chevy Chase loose his mind we are feeling truly blessed to have the opportunity to explore the Great Barrier Reef and really all the locales we have visited. We are so grateful and so lucky! Sending lots of love to everyone back home! Miss you! Merry ...

      ... bird and plant life, a Gondowanda garden of plants through time and an Aboriginal bush medicine section. I still didn't see the elusive Cossowary and I refuse to go to the zoo to see one, but did manage to see an Orange Footed Scrubfowl (which are dime a dozen apparently) and it, like the Brush Turkey builds mounds to incubate its eggs. These mounds seem disproportionate to its size ...

      ... to a true Aussie restaurant and had kangaroo, crocodile, wallaby and other Interesting foods. Gotta say that the wallaby was my favorite, and croc tastes odd and eats like a mixed consistency of chicken and I fish.

This group had an amazing crew, tons of food, ...
