Vacation Time!

I mentioned in my last post that the family and I were away on a vacation - my hubby had been planning this ALL YEAR and surprised us all!!  :)  He had a business trip on Hamilton Island - part of the beautiful Whitsunday Islands, right in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef!!  Because I now have to madly catch up on my card work, today you get photos from Hamilton Island to inspire you!!  :)

This is the view from our holiday home - looking over some of the Whitsunday Islands, back towards mainland Australia.  Can you see the dark patches in the water??  That is just a small part of the coral reefs that are all throughout the area!


This is Catseye Beach - the main beach on Hamilton Island!  We were there early and had it all to ourselves!  :)


Everyone gets around in a Golf Buggy on Hamilton Island (us too!) - this is Peak Hour!!  :)


Another part of the beach looking east.


Hope you've enjoyed some of my holiday snaps and hopefully next time you visit I'll have some new cards for you!  :)
