T'was the week before Christmas...

December in North Queensland ... mangoes and lychees and a dinner of fish and chips on the beach with a balmy breeze blowing in from the Coral Sea... the glowing red of poincianas and the fragrant whiteness of frangipani blooms among glossy green leaves (PNG frangipani). 

We're in Townsville now and later in the week we'll head over to the island (that's Magnetic Island, of course, otherwise known up here as Maggie, to spend Christmas with half of our family.

Took E for a lovely walk along the beach at Rowes Bay this morning... now back into the airconditioning to plod on with the WIP.

Hope your lead-in to Christmas is hassle free and happy.
This is where we ate our fish'n chip dinner last night. Nice one.

I hope you have a great trip to Magnetic Island, Barbara, and that the weather behaves itself! Happy holidays :)
