Day two of Bashfuls vacation Down Under


Day two of our holiday of course was Christmas Day..
We woke to a humid and hot day…Bashful was very surprised at that..his last Christmas was with Misaki and it was in England so very different weather!

We really did not do much as we were preparing for some ‘busy’ days ahead and usually Christmas day I am flat out..so for the first time in 31 years I did NO cooking! Amazing..

So after a huge buffet breakfast it was straight to the pool..
Bashful of course was quite pleased about this..

He was very enamoured of the giant colourful palms.as was I…

Beautiful colored palm trees

Wanting to head to the beach we grabbed our towels and Bashful and spent the rest of the morning enjoying the beautiful day..

Fozziedad gave Bashful a hand as it’s a big body of water for a little stone!

There you go mate!

There you go mate!

It was so nice to just sit and enjoy the world..no rushing in the kitchen no cooking and cleaning..i loved it!
The resort had Christmas trees everywhere and Christmas carols and songs playing..

Christmas still happens when you go away

We had pre ordered when we booked our holiday for a special Christmas lunch platter..and as Bashful slept (tired from the heat) our lunch arrived.

It was one of the most beautiful lunches, we ate in the outdoor undercover pool bar..surrounded by other Christmas celebrators..the air was warm the music gentle and Christmassy and the views of pools and palms all around.
This platter was huge..seafood, cold meats, salads,dips, cheeses,crackers, everything! including little individual mince pies with ice cream and a huge Christmas cracker..

Food to die for

And of course Cocktails!

And of course Cocktails!

After lunch we went for a swim and started to plan the boxing day trip we were taking..as the next days were going t be full on!

We ended up in bed super early even Bashful was still tired..so I shall continue our trip in my next post..wait till you see what we all got up to!

Pee ess we are safe here at the moment with only a few small fires started by lightning nearby..dark clouds have threatened but no rain..so rain dances would be appreciated πŸ˜‰ Hugs Fozziemum xx
