I wonder what is is so intriguing to the group of people on the right. Some others make their way along Four Mile Beach, ignoring the blustery weather.
The entrance to our villa is marked on the ground by bougainvillea litter, strewn by the breeze. However, the picture does not capture the majestic proportions of the palm trees standing sentinel over the Pink Flamingo resort.
Shower and bathe outside to the sound of birdsong while palm filtered sunlight illuminates your skin.
Warm water falls to keep the pool at a comfortable 29oC
Like a person possessed I have accumulated quite a number of pictures of flowers while in Port Douglas, Australia. The one on the left is a member of the ginger family, I have no idea what the other two are, any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Do I really have to go in the pool again?
Each time I walk past these water lilies my imagination takes a plunge into fantasy, I see green fish or exotic mermaids taking a dive into the pond.
The Pink Flamingo Resort is home away from home; 10 villas with their own courtyards, (inside and) outside baths and showers. This is a picture of a water lily taken just outside our villa.
A three hour flight north to Cairns, far from the hustle and bustle of Sydney. A comfortable 28oC is plenty warm enough for shorts and tee shirts. I love tropical north Queensland, deep red, orange and pink flowers of the ginger plants contrast beautifully against so many shades of vibrant green. There was a strong breeze blowing in from the Pacific while we were having lunch in Palm Cove.
