Wellies sound heavenly Wonky

yesterday I found nemo 🧑. And Dory πŸ’™. Had a wonderful day snorkelling, although ts a shame my sum total of tropical fish 🐠 knowledge comes from a Disney cartoon 

Today we fly to Brisbane .....farewell to the rainforest and reef, you were awesome ❀️

Evening Joyce 

Another tree id here for Pat .....there seem to be nearly as many of these in Port Douglas as there were Jacarandas in Adelaide 

Plus, some sand art courtesy of a little white crab πŸ¦€ 

Kew isn’t RHS LilyP, but enjoy anyways
