"Holiday-ay"

I hope you read the post heading in  a "Madonna song voice" - I'm back from the 'Whitsunday's" - four fabulous nights on Hamilton Island during Audi Race Week. This photo was taken on the first day...



As was this photo - during sunset. The next three days and nights were rather overcast. But we were on holidays and the six of us had a fabulous time.



How could you not when accompanied by Miss Emma (complete with fabulous trilby hat, nautical stripe top and compulsory crab necklace pictured here during our stop over in Brissie)



We even put our fancy pants on (should that be 'fancy dresses' on) at qualia for the paspaley pearl lunch. Asher Keddie was there (no signs of Dr Patrick Reid though, sorry ladies) -  Looking stunning and always the modest special guest. We should have plucked up the courage for a photo.... the tables looked amazing - Saskia Havekes was there and was responsible for the beautiful table centre pieces of beautiful paspaley pearls, orchids and ocean wood perfectly capturing the 'stranded at qualia' paspaley event. It was an absolute honour to be greeted by Ros Bracher and her daughter who were hosting the event.


And then there was some shameless celebrity spotting. Poor Paul Mac was on our 'shuttle bus' (if you have been to hamilton island you know that transport is either golf buggy( which i 'drove' thank you very much) or shuttle bus) back to the hotel on our first night. Mr Mac had just 'dj'ed' a set at Collette Dinnigan's 2013 resort collection show - thanks for playing along Paul Mac!


And now it is back to reality - so much to do... so little time. Big things happening at the day job.... HUGE things happening with the 'night job' (aka the online shop) - patience people... patience...... xxx

I have just seen this post... and I agree with kits above, it seems like months ago!
I miss my crab necklace... I think it is in storage, waiting for the next Whit trip.
