Spirit of the Horse and Movie World

We arrived back in Bowral last night after 4 wonderful days at the Gold Coast in Queensland.  Despite the rain, we had the best time.  The first night was a rainy and we stayed pretty close to the hotel and we had take-away from an Italian restaurant....which I forgot to take photos...sorry!
The next day we spent walking along the ocean 
Dee Dee, my son Aaron and grandkids, Bridget and Lachlan.  It was cloudy, but not raining and that was fine with us.  The sand on the beach is so powdery.  

At night we were treated to "The Spirit of the Horse" a tribute to Australian History and the importance of horses throughout the country's history.  It is also a tribute to Phar Lap, which gave hope during the depression.  Google for more information.  Definitely a worthwhile read.
and here is a shot of some real horse folk.....yee...haa!
Our final day was spent at Movie World, which is like our Universal Studios.  It rained most of the day, which did not seem to limit the crowds.  
Here's the group all ready for the rain.  We went to a stunt show.  And here are some photos from it...
I think the star of the show was this goofy guy, who in the end turned out to be quite the stuntsman.  
He reminds me of one of my favorite deputies from my working days.  If any of the gang reads this, I'm sure they will know of whom I speak!  LOL!

From the stunt show it was on to the rides.  Bridget and I loved the Scooby Doo ride, which was a fun indoor roller coaster, with lots of twists and turns. 
And then there was a parade. 
And Finally, we are on the plane heading back to Sydney....the sunset from the plane was so pretty.
Well, that's it from it's a day to get laundry done and post to blogs and FaceBook.  Tomorrow we are going to Fitzroy Falls.  

Until later,  Hugs to all....I am missing my craft buddies and of course my husband, but I'm having a wonderful time....almost forgot, I'll have some fantastic news when I get home.....

  1. Looks like you are having a grand time! Thanks for taking the time to share. Can't wait to hear the good news!

  2. I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him here as +447053820826 or He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something

  3. Fabulous pictures, looks like you had lots of fun.
