Australian Adventure – Day 26 – New Year’s Day

Happy New Year.   May 2014 be an awesome year.  May you follow and fulfill many of your dreams and may it end with a ton an amazing memories.

Today’s blog will be brief.

It was another lousy day in Australia today – ha! ha! NOT!   We started with an “Early” breakfast and then headed to Catherine Bay beach for our first swim in the Pacific Ocean.   It was a glorious morning.  The waves were just right and the water fabulously warm!   Safe swimming is the order of the day in Australia and there are vigilant lifeguards on duty.  It is severely frowned upon to swim outside of the red and yellow flags and constant reminders come over a public address system to warn errant swimmers to return to the safe spot!

After our swim we drove around taking in more fantastic scenery and in the afternoon we went to the movies!   The Butler was a powerful movie and if you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it.

  1. Glad your weather was so good. It was an amazing day in Fish at least 30 deg. The sea was 20 deg. Your pictures are great glad you managed a swim. Have a good day.
