Scenic Sunday : Idyllic holiday at the Whitsundays

These shots when my husband and I were holidaying at the Whitsundays, Australia in 2008.

We had a boat take us to our private beach on a different island every afternoon…

We were lucky to spot 2 humpback whales. We think they were dancing for us… (but it all happened too quickly for the amateur photographer to act)

This is Edwina, a banana loving wallaby. She is the resident pet at the hotel at Paradise Bay.

This photo was taken from a helicopter which took us to our hotel from Hamilton Island.

Hi Evelyn,
I like the "but it all happened too quickly for the amateur photographer to act" - same thing happened with the dolphins. Lovely photos and Edwina is a sweetie. I bet all the holiday makers made a pet of her. Thanks for visiting my blog and your comments.
Enjoy your week.
Cheers.
