Jules' pics - 2003 - plus Colleen's pics (first two)

Colleen, Mish, Shingi and Temba came to Queensland!
August 2003
BEST news for a long time - the Kensington crew are
really, really, REALLY going to come and visit...

countdown the months... weeks... days...

they're HERE!!


except a few ceremonial photos

there's no way we can all fit on board Jeshan
at the same time ... hmmm, what can be done about this?

Just get a bigger boat!

So a deal was done with Queensland Yacht Charters
at Airlie Beach...

a plastic card was swiped repeatedly...

and then Moonshadow was "ours"
for four wonderful days of sailing
around the Whitsunday Islands.

Light winds, blue sky, sails above
our heads, plenty of food on the table,
and a snorkelling paradise below
the water... it was superb!!

And then...
just for a change of pace
(and because we had to give the boat back!)
we went camping in the bush and swimming
in freshwater creeks and
hiking in the Paluma rainforest.


That bit was followed by city lights and big meals in Cairns, the SkyRail over-the-rainforest-canopy experience, Kuranda's tourist village and historic railway trip back to Cairns for Colleen, Temba and Jules, plus whitewater river rafting for Mish and Shingi.

Then the VIP visitors went off for more adventures in Sydney, and Jules went back to school.

And altogether it was a VERY HAPPY whole LOT of days -- thanks SO much for coming!!
