Awesome week

Its been a fabulous week down under.  Firstly with the pumpkin incident.

Thursday was Australia Day.  Bear and I had such a wonderful day relaxing and spending time together.  Bear prepared a delicious meal with bbq lamb steaks, followed by mini pavs he made from scratch. 





Thanks to our Katie and Rob I had an awesome cranberry martini with my dinner, whilst Bear had a beer in his own Papa Bear stubby holder

.


We finished the night with some spanky fun and MFL. 


Yesterday and today  has been glorious weather.  Friday must have been perfect air currents as there were heaps of hang gliders flying over our house.  This looked amazing  to us but the puppies obviously felt threatened barking no stop at them.

We had another cruise ship Europa,  in today so luckily Mother Nature played nicely by putting on her finest sunny day.  Along with the cruise ship there's Cirque Africa in town.  Bear and I headed out after lunch to go buy tickets for a 1pm session.  On arrival we were told todays session was               12 o' clock.  The ticker lady asked if we were interested in the last session tomorrow morning BUT once she told us the price our eyes popped out of our heads.   Way out of our price range!




WE then took a stroll to see the cruise ship market where Bear bought a new decoration for our mantle piece, a tug boat.  Took heaps of photos of the cruise ship, then noticed our Sammy the seal putting on his own show for the visitors to our town.  Unfortunately he was a bit quick for some decent photos.




See the black blob, that's our Sammy waving, cheeky boy.

Even managed to do a bit more painting Minelle. Its starting to look alright now, thank goodness.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thank you Minelle. This time of years helps Bears moods so he is more playful.
      Oh dear not sure my painting will be good enough to share. Might send you a private msg with it in. I'm finding it relaxing to do a bit each day.

  3. Well, Happy Belated Australia Day to you and Bear. I have had some Aussie beers, and they are yummy.

    Cirque shows are quite expensive, but I have seen a few. Hands down, my favorite was the Beatles LOVE show in Las Vegas. It was awesome.

    Ella Very Jealous of Your Summer Weather!

    1. Thank you Ella. I hate beer but just as well as its not gluten free.
      Maybe one day we will be able to afford to see a cirque.
      Sending some sunshine your way.

  10. I have been remiss in keeping up with blogs - between writing, the FMS thing and life, there are just no enough hours in the day.
    Happy Australia Day - loving your pics on FMS and FB.

  13. It sounds like you had a grand time. I was in Australia a few years back and I loved it! I want to return some day and see more of the country. It was pretty funny when I told people I was planning on going everybody asked me if we were going to see New Zealand too. I had to ask if they knew how big Australia was! We were there for two weeks and didn't to see everything we wanted to!

    Happy Australia Day...a bit late...but still!

    1. Thank you Cygnet. Glad you enjoyed your trip down under and want to return again. I've lived here all my life and still haven't seen all of Australia. Its so wide spread, takes ages to go from one side to the other.
