Christmas Decorations

I am also linking up with Sharon for Lets Book it,to see what the other ladies got up to go here.
Thankyou Sharon for hosting ,i nearly forgot again,lol.

This was the only stitching i did while away 11 days,lol,i was too busy having fun,i put these together last night

 The designs i used were out of Gail Pan's new book called Christmas,i just made them a bit smaller,my next ones will be a bit smaller again.

 They were quite quick to make up and look rather cute i think anyway.

 The thread i used was Cottage garden threads called Mistletoe and i backed them with a cute fabric full of holly and berries.

Dont forget to sign up with Chez for Friday Night with Friends,to signup go here.
Hope your day is a good one.

Cyclone Tracy

On Saturaday our last day in Darwin our friends took us to the Northern Territory Museum

We discovered that cyclone Tracy happened the year that we got married 1974

We found this very interesting reading about sweetheart the crocodile

Boy this crocodile was huge ,this pic doesn't really show how big it was

Lots of interesting things to see,I went into a darkened small room and it was like being there through a cyclone,the noise was so loud and scary and you could here tin flying around all the time.

This poor captain went down with his ship 

The displays were amazing 

My grandsons would've liked the dinosaurs

There was even a movie for us to watch 

Well worth visiting if you are in Darwin.
Hope your day is a good one.

Buley Rockhole

This was the last water falls that we went to in the Litchfield National Park.

And again lots of people here swimming and having picnics

Each one of the waterfalls that we got to see where so different from each other and so pretty to see

This one might've been a little bit crowded with swimmers,lol

We head off now for a bit of lunch.

 We find this lovely old pub in Batchelor and had a lovely lunch.

We are home now and what a shock with the weather,we got dropped off at the airport at 12.30 am yesterday morning in Darwin and it was so hot and we arrived back in Melbourne at 10 past 7 in the morning and it was 3 degs,lol,a big shock to the system.
We had a wonderful time in Darwin with good friends,it's nice to be back home and to see the family .
I hope your day is a good one.
Cheers shez ......

Florence Falls

Next we went to Florence falls,which had an amazing amount of steps to climb down
And I forgot that I had to climb back up them so guess who can hardly walk today ,lol.
 These falls were beautiful 

We could see lots of people swimming there 

 Boy the rocks surrounding this fall were amazing 

 It was a long way to walk down ,but so worth it when we got there 

Finally we got to the bottom

 Lots of people there with picnics and enjoying a swim

 Happy hour Saturday night for us as we leave early Sunday morning,we both don't want to go home,lol,we love Darwin ,I am going to miss my friends

 Hope your day was a good one.

Wangi Falls

We visited three falls today in Litchfield National Park,the first one was Wangi falls

Oh my this is the most beautiful waterfall I have ever seen
It was beautiful ,we didn't go swimming as the water was very deep and icy cold,lots of people were swimming in it though and some right over to the waterfalls.

I did keep my eye open for crocodiles,lol

 There was also a lovely walk you could go on through the rain forest

It was so pretty there and while we were walking I could hear all these noises,I thought they were birds,but Was told they were bats and it was also a bit smelly 

Some of the trees were amazing all twisted 
This was such a lovely place to visit.
Hope your day was a good one .
