Hey folks - have to be quick because apparently i'm missing cocktail hour... but thought i'd post a few pics to start. will post more tonight when everyone's gone to bed.

New Years was hilarious - ended up spending it at the surf club with a bunch of old people dancing and playing pokies - got mildly drunk on champagne out by the water and although it was pretty tame i had a really good time.

just got back from the coast - lots of pics so far and yes i have pics of girls in bikinis (and boys in board shorts) but will post those later. :D

later [cheers]



These little balls are made by soldier crabs... they're really tiny and feel awesome under your feet. they push the sand up like that as they're digging their holes.

I can't begin to tell you how many amazing old Toyotas are out here... rare to see one without a snorkel because of the dust in the outback areas. I hope to get lots more pics of the 4WD's while I'm here.

Ok here's a few more :)

This is kind of like "Where's Waldo" cuz there's a big ass pelican in this pic - the other thing is that you can see where the sand bar I was walking on ends and it drops off into 'a great abyss' (where the fish are) - lots of stingrays on the sand bars but I never saw any sadly)

Awesome idea Lizard - will try and make it out to one of the sand islands this coming weekend and see what I can come up with for you....

Going to the Australia Zoo either this week or next and am gonna try and meet Steve Irwin as well.... [36][36] and if I can try and make it to Sea World as well... They've got some pretty cool stuff there and it's been about 10 years since I've been...

Saw a couple of huge lizards in the backyard today but wasn't quick enough grabbing my camera - am doing my best to get some of those for you too... :)

Or make my brother take them. [36] :D

ok the rest of these were taken with my sister's camera and i'm not sure when, but the spider pics are insane (got 'em in the front yard apparently) so I thought I'd throw them in.

Just to give you some perspective, the thing in the spider's mouth is an aphid. I want this camera.

ok so after i posted those last pics Lauren (stepsister) was heading off to work and offered to lend me her camera for the day - so I got all excited and started looking for spiders...

Needless to say, I didn't have to look far... one in the front garden that snatched and wrapped up a little spider while i was standing there and my favourite one which was hanging off the fan pull thingy on the back deck.

I am still shaking and want you to know that these photos were harder to take than the bikini ones. Mostly because i was centimetres away from them when i took the pic.... *shudder*

The pic editing software on this computer is gay so when i get back i'll enlist somebody's help and get the others up somehow.. until then here's a couple...

Hey all - just thought i'd let you know I'll be home in one more sleep... (well, two more for me at the moment as it's 11:15 pm and I'm getting on the plane tomorrow morning at 7 am - and I still haven't packed. [eek]).

I miss you heaps!

Has been an awesome trip - made it to the Australia Zoo today with the family - got a few pics which I'll post when the jetlag wears off... :)

Sure am going to miss my family... had dinner at my brother's best friend's parents house tonight to say goodbye.. (wow that was a mouthful) - they're as much family as anyone cuz we've known them for 19 years. Sitting out on their deck watching the sun go down over the city was amazing... in some ways it feels like I've been gone forever, and in other ways, it feels like I never left.

I can't wait to come back again. :D
