IN WHICH I PLAY TOURIST IN MY OWN BACKYARD

Let me state, right now, that this will be a short n quick post. Why? Well, apart from having a few other things to do, I find typing a little messy when I’m slathered in lotion.

“What lotion?”   “Why?” I hear you asking.

Here’s a clue:

tourists splashing in a pool beacause the tide was low and the beach was “mucky.”

Maybe you need another hint…?

One of the cruise liners that regularly ply the Barrier Reef route. Also, one of the parasailing options for day-trippers.

Any guesses so far?

Well, we drove for 2 hours to catch a ferry to our day’s destination… (Do I hear pages of atlases being flipped? Bet some smarty pants has hopped on to Google-earth!

we saw several of these chaps, snoozing in the heat of the day.

(And there’s another [ four-lettered ]clue.)

2008_1207hamiltonisland0009No, it is not called “Monty!” The desk attendant had taken “Camilla ” out of the viewing tank because a workman had to adjust a hinge and refused to do so with “that bloody thing inside!”

2008_1207hamiltonisland0033The reason for the outing…friends from the 1940s who had a day ashore from their cruise ship.

And, from this, you can probably see why the lotion is a necessity!

Still not sure where I’ve been? Not gonna tell ya, so there!(But I know at least one of my loyal followers knows how to find out!)
