A dip in the canal

Sun 25th December 2011

After our food had gone down, we decided it was warm enough for a little swim. The water was warm like a bath!

Swimming in salt water on Christmas Day, well I never. As you can see Matt still had his paper hat on!

 

A game before lunch

Sun 25th December 2011

The boys decided to play a game of catch while we were waiting for lunch to be ready.

Matt says...

Well it’s not every Christmas morning you get to go out in 30 degree heat. May as well make the most of it!

Aussie pressies

Sun 25th December 2011

Our stockings were full of Aussie gifts, which was very funny as we haven’t got many at all!

Matt

Matt says...

Ahh yes, what every good tourist needs to make them stick out like a sore thumb; an Australian bum-bag! Thanks Min! :)

 
Claire

Claire says...

An Australian bum bag to replace the one Matt’s been wearing (and still does now) to death for 6 months – yay!

 

Santa’s stockings

Sun 25th December 2011

Santa was very kind to us this year, he must know we’re away from home. We both got stockings with our names on – cute!

Matt

Matt says...

Santa amazes me every year, even though we were half way round the world he still knew where to find us! He must have some sort of space age tracking device!

 
Claire

Claire says...

I was so shocked when we realised we had stockings! Suddenly it really was like Christmas! :)

 

Christmas cheer

Sun 25th December 2011

This was the one thing I wanted from Christmas Day in Australia – a view like this!

Matt

Matt says...

The sea was very rough in the morning due to the cyclone off the east coast of Australia so a swim wasn’t recommended! Claire decided to get her feet wet instead.

Were am I? Where is the frost and dreary looking day?
