Another Hot Day

According to the Townsville Bulletin we have recorded 51 days straight, of above 30C degree temperatures. Now this is not news to us as we do it every year and although it is hot,  it's usually the humidity that makes you feel hot and sticky and reluctant to move or want to do anything.
So what do we do to cool off? There is always the air-conditioners to cool the place down or you can go a little way down the road and really cool off!

To here!

Paradise Pools at Crystal Creek, about 25 minutes north of Townsville.

Grandies had a lovely day in the water.

Feeding the fish bread crusts.

We arrived early so there were not many other families there, but over the course of the next few hours lots of others came for a picnic and a swim. It was by no means crowed and there was plenty of space for everyone. The water was cool and deep. Can't or won't show you a pics of my back as I got a little sunburned although I did put on the sunscreen and reapplied ! Off to the shops tomorrow to get one of those swimming shirts ! Not too late as I can see us going again soon.

As I don't make new year resolutions ( don't keep them and trying to just adds to the everyday pressures), on the craft front I have decided to concentrate on finishing some UFOs and do some journal/album making. I already have an order of  graphic 45 papers on it's way and I want to make some albums  for the birthday box.
Hope everyone is coping with whatever mother nature is throwing at us (weather wise) around the world..

  4. Wow.. All we're hearing about here are the blizzards and record snow falls and you're cooling off! Lol.. That looks like the perfect place to do it. We can send you some snow if you'd like! ;)
    Happy New Year!

  5. That looks like a lovely spot to cool off and so pristine! We stayed indoors in the AC on our hottest day (42deg). Even the pool gave no relief.....felt like a warm bath....ughhh!
