Sir Walter Whiskerface

Hello Dear Readers :D

Yesterday I finished a project which I have been working on for a looong time.

For Christmas last year I received a knitted cat toy kit. I am finally finished!

Please welcome..... Sir Walter Whiskerface!
I made Sir Walter to the sounds of many audiobooks; War and Peace, The Woman in White (giving him the name Walter after Walter Hartright) and finally Pygmalion.

Why yes indeed, how true
 He is a very dignified cat with a fondness for reading mysteries with Mum.
Oh my goodness! Really?
 Though he can be surprised very easily.
Sir Walter says fair thee well
Fair thee well, dear readers and thanks for reading! :)

A Holiday in Queensland

Hello dear readers!

I'm back! I've just been away on a two week holiday to Queensland. Be prepared for a very long post about my adventures :)

First stage:A loooong to Brisbane, stayed with relatives for a day.

Second stage: 7 hr drive to Gladstone.

Third stage: 8 hr drive to Arlie Beach.

Arlie Beach was amazing! On the first day we hung out on the beach and went shopping in the mall
The next day we went on a cruise! We hopped on a boat out to a pontoon on the Great Barrier Reef! On the pontoon we went snorkeling, the water was pretty cold but there were fish swimming around everywhere! When we hopped out of the water we had lunch then got in a submersible boat. The submersible boat had windows along the bottom so you could look out among the fishies and the coral. I even saw a shark!

Forth stage: 7 hr drive to Malanda Falls.

In Malanda Falls we went to a family reunion, the reason of our holiday. And we also visited some waterfalls. Unfortunately I was sick and didn't enjoy much of Malanda. (Though I definitely enjoyed the chocolate factory, mmmm, chocolate...)

We saw an echidna! (Mum's Pic)
And there were goats/sheep at our caravan park :D

Fifth stage: A 3 hr drive to Cow Bay.

Cow Bay is located in the Daintree Rainforest, a pretty impressive rain forest I must say.
I found a Gecko! So cute! (Mum's Pic) 
Our cabin was a little getaway place in the forest, so we were all alone with the birds and butterflies. On the first day we visited the Daintree discovery centre, where we went on a few walks and I saw a Cassowary. (Cassowaries are endangered.)

Some birds nests (Dad's Pic)

After Cow Bay we drove back through Arlie, Gladstone and Brisbane and now I'm home again! It's good to be back :D

How were your holidays dear readers? Read any good books lately?
