Christmas Aussie Style
Like lots of Aussies this year we headed for the beach to celebrate Christmas with my very elderly parents who now reside in an Aged Care Facility in Hervey Bay, a four hour drive north of Brisbane
This is an old fashioned, sleepy seaside area famous as a playground for whales on their yearly pilgrimage from Antarctica to tropical waters in Winter where the baby whales are born before returning to Antarctica for the summer.
On Christmas we sat down by the water having a cocktail . Thee weather was perfect.
Not too hot with a beautiful breeze keeping the temperature ideal.
We took a few selfies and sent them off to family in Michigan and Wales just to rub the weather in a bit !!
On Christmas morning we collected the Oldies from the Nursing Home and brought them to my brother's home for the day.
Lunch was lovely salads and chicken and the Christmas special - ham on the bone.
No raging temperatures.
We all tucked in to this feast.
The obligatory bon bons with silly hats and terrible jokes,
a glass of cold rose
what more could you ask for ?
Christmas Pudding of course !
After that it was a case of find a cool spot,
put your feet up and
D O Z E.
Hope all my blogging buddies out there had a wonderful Christmas Day with lots of laughs and great food.
