Port Douglas-Day 11

My kind of R&R

Last full day in paradise, so we headed out to 4 mile beach one last time!

This video was huge with my big camera, 
and I'm interested to see what the quality will be like after converting it!

The humidity made my stick-straight hair have a beach wave!

I wish my backyard was filled with all this!

After goofing around town, we had a double date at Mark and Suze's hotel for an authentic Aussie lunch and hangin' out by the pool before heading home to the States!

"Sausage Sizzle"
 For a couple bucks, you get a slice of white bread (I chose wheat), a sausage, sauteed onions, and bbq sauce (or ketchup).  Almost always served at a little league game, parking lot of DIY stores, ballpark, etc ... you name it!  There's nothing sophisticated about it, but we wanted to do it right the way the locals do it! 

Here's the mayhem in making it happen :)
**Aussies call ketchup "tomato"

I just learned how to use video on my camera, so it threw them off!

I am a big fan of the 10sec timer - Genius invention!

We heard a helicopter touch down what seemed REALLY close, so I went and investigated.  This photo was taken without a zoom ... and still to this day I wonder who landed on the hotel property!

We said out goodbyes, got email addresses, and have planned to meet our Aussie friends in Asia one of these days.  It was a true delight meeting such great people who made our trip so memorable.  As you can tell from the videos, our time together was filled with lots of joy and laughter.  We wish them a happy future together with many blessings!!!

Next post, our 30hr trip home!
To be continued ....

You are too cute! Love the little videos...those are funny too when by accident you think you have it on picture setting, but video instead, and people are posting for flash to go off! :) I wonder who was in that helicopter too!

I am so jealous of this trip. Thanks for sharing everything with us! Like you, I am sure the food would be an adjustment for me as well.

Btw.. we took a helicopter from the airport to our resort on our honeymoon. It was awesome! Maybe the person who landed was just a joe schmo like us?

I played that one of the 4 miles beach though.. your hair blowing in the breeze makes me want to go back on vacation! What a gorgeous spot! :) The rest of the pics are great, too, girlie!
